Heart and Cell exhibit in Rosenthal Gallery through Dec. 15

2009. 11. 10.

Katona-Batchelor's prints use the tradition of flap-anatomy books to create three-dimensional images that imaginatively interpret human organs, particularly the heart. The overlapping printed surfaces invite the viewer to explore the physical structure of her works. Katona-Batchelor holds a master's in fine art from Boise State University and teaches at Portland Community College.

Herden's paintings interpret the cellular functions of the body, and she seeks to express in her pictures "the rhythm that resides within biological life." She employs layers of color, and delicate, expressive drawing to explore a world accessible only to the microscope. Herden is currently completing her master's in fine art at Boise State University.

The Rosenthal Gallery is located in Blatchley Hall and is open Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Saturdays, noon-5 p.m., or by appointment.
