Solo exhibition opens PSU museum’s season

Updated:
PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

The Pittsburg State University Museum of Art will open its 2015-16 season with a solo exhibition by artist Cory Peeke entitled “a higher education.” The exhibit will open in the University Gallery on Monday, August 24, and will run through November 5.

In his most recent work, Peeke uses collages to explore the duality of the disposable nature of our culture and the human need to create cultural continuity and tradition.

“I’m a collage maker for much the same reason I’m a curator – I love images,” Peeke said. “This affection has led me to collect remnant imagery; the largely ignored and seemingly inconsequential bits of ephemera that once had a purpose, still have a presence, but are now idle in disuse. I combine, layer, juxtapose, glue, tape and re-contextualize these bits and pieces of detritus in order to reincarnate and recharge them.”

Peeke received his BFA in fine arts from Kendall Collage of Art and Design and his MFA from the University of Idaho. Peeke’s work has been published in the U.S. and Europe and is included in the permanent collections of Eastern Oregon University, Lockhaven University, Whitman College and the International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction.

In addition to his studio practice, Peeke is a contributing writer for the Montreal-based magazine Kolaj. Peeke serves as the director of the Nightingale Gallery and as a professor of art at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, Oregon. He is represented by Gallery I M A in Seattle, Wash.

The University Gallery, located in Porter Hall on the PSU campus, is open from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free.
