Anne Albosta’s 95% recycled mixed media installation represents her experience with grief. This is accompanied by her powerful artist’s statement as well as helpful information on what anyone might expect as they go through their own grieving process. “Salmon have been my helpers, my healers and my guides as I navigate the grief and death in my life…As a survivor, it is essential to my healing to exhibit my story, to make the invisible oppression I have faced visible. Reclaiming Grief is my journey of acknowledging and shedding the grief I have been carrying."-Anne Albosta

This month is National Autism Awareness Month and the AS Disability Outreach Center is displaying art from the HeART of the Spectrum's artists on the autistic spectrum, based in Seattle. The exhibit is located in Wilson Library’s Gallery 1, just off the Skybridge, and will run through the end of the month.

The exhibit is also meant to bring awareness to the 5th annual Disability Awareness Week. Disability Awareness Week is a weeklong series of events meant to educate students on disability issues as well as help create a sense of community. I would also encourage you to check out socialstripes.com, a greeting card website dedicated to supporting adult artists living with autism.

To find out more about the Disability Outreach Center or Disability Awareness Week head over to Viking Union 528 or send us an email at as.disability@wwu.edu

It’s that time of year again! The temperature is rising, the flowers are blooming and the air is smelling a little bit sweeter. Earth Day is right around the corner and rather than celebrating one day, Western Washington University is making a whole week out of it! University Dining Services is hosting an art exhibit in the library and we want to know what “Earth Day” means to you, but don’t just say it…draw it! Head over to the fourth floor of Wilson Library, just outside of the Reading Room, and draw your interpretation of Earth Day on the giant blank canvas covering the hallway walls! The canvas and drawing supplies are waiting for you, all you need to bring is your ideas and artistic talent. Whether it’s your personal Earth Day pledge or just a simple flower, show us your definition of Earth Day by drawing it on the canvas walls! The exhibit will be open Monday, April 16th to Friday, April 27th.

This year's student led community based show features work from Ferndale High School students. The work was submitted by the following eight students: Angela Stringfield, Eli Owen, Galina Shulga, Brad Vario, Samantha Johnson, Jennifer Nestle, Alyssa Peterson, and Maleenia Huntley. They all worked within the mediums of photography and digital art. Some of the themes within their work is the cycle of life, and rebirth in Spring, the growth and blooming of plants and animals in Spring, as well as the focus on contrast and light. Western's Art History 308 students wanted to create a show that allowed the local high school and middle school students the freedom and honor of displaying their work in a show that will be open and up for the entire community to view. We really wanted to encourage students to be involved and active in their community and to display their creativity as much as possible, while also allowing us to be involved in that process.

Kate McKee, Chelsea Madura, Jourdan Hinkle & Angie Larrabee
