MURRAY, Ky. — Murray State University’s Clara M. Eagle Gallery is featuring the Land Report Collective exhibit from Oct. 6 through Nov. 5. The exhibit features work from Shelby Shadwell, Patrick Kikut, David Jones, Brian R. Jobe and Jason S. Brown.
The Land Report Collective exhibit focuses on how people interact with the landscapes in their environment. This exhibit showcases different art forms such as drawing, sculpture and video. The featured artists explore landscapes through many lenses. Shadwell focuses on landscapes through images captured from road cameras, mining operations and salt flats. He portrays his work through drawing, sculpture and video installations. Kikut uses a series of midwestern landscapes to showcase his interest in horizon lines. Jones investigates desert environments through the use of sculpture. Jobe uses his interest in public interactions as inspiration to craft pathways using bricks and wood. Brown’s work considers the politics of mountain top removal through playful formal assemblages.
“There is a variety of mediums used to describe landscape in nontraditional ways by the five artists represented in Land Report. This exhibition has elements of drawing, sculpture, painting, and video that comments [on] and questions one’s interaction within their landscape,” said T. Michael Martin, Director of University Galleries.
In addition to the exhibit, the Clara M. Eagle Gallery will host an artist talk and closing reception Nov. 5 at 5:00 p.m.

Eagle Gallery is located on the Sixth Floor of the Fine Arts Building and is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call the art office at 270-809-3784.
