‘I Dream of All Things’ opens the 2014–15 gallery season at Ohio Northern University

August—The Ohio Northern University gallery program opens its 2014–15 art exhibition and gallery season with “I Dream of All Things,” photographs by Emily Jay, Sept. 2—Oct. 10 at the Elzay Gallery of Art.

Emily is an adjunct instructor in art at ONU. This semester she is teaching digital photography and visual literacy. She earned her Bachelor of fine arts degree in studio arts in 2010 at Ohio Northern. While a student, Emily was involved in Kappa Pi and the Student Art League. She was also a Shelley C. Petrillo Scholarship recipient. She earned her MFA in painting from Bowling Green State University in 2013.

Her exhibit, I Dream of All Things, explores the relationship between promise, breaking, and beauty. It is a photographic exploration of slipping into and out of dreams, as they come to be and as they come to fall apart.  

Emily’s latest work uses painting, photography, and installation as she attempts to catalogue remnants of aesthetic experience encountered in the mundane. The exhibit is on display Sept. 2—Oct. 10, 2014. A reception for the artist is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 3 at 5:30p.m., Homecoming weekend.

Originally designated as the School of Fine Arts and later the College of Fine Arts, the art & design program was first established as an independent academic unit at Ohio Northern in 1878, largely as an outgrowth of course work in engineering and architectural drawing. Today, Ohio Northern offers both the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees with majors in advertising design, art education, graphic design and studio arts with concentrations in two-dimensional, three-dimensional and pre-art therapy. The department of A&D holds memberships in national organizations such as the National Art Education Association, College Art Association, Foundations in Art: Theory and Education, AIGA: The Professional Association for Design, and the National Council on Education of Ceramic Arts. The department is recognized in the “Creative Colleges: A Guide for Student Actors, Artists, Dancers, Musicians and Writers” as one of the best creative programs nationwide.
