CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Fairbanks Gallery at Oregon State University’s Corvallis campus will present “Way Beyond the Rainbow,” the 2016-2017 Plinkiewisch Scholarship Exhibition, from March 13 through March 31.
A drop-in reception will be held from 4-8 p.m. Thursday, March 16, during the Corvallis Arts Walk. The reception is free and open to the public.
“Way Beyond the Rainbow” exhibits the varied interests and skills of the 2016-2017 Plinkiewisch scholars. The six participating students are Maddy Corbin, a senior in 3D art; Milla Oliveira, a senior in painting and drawing; Suehade Soto, a sophomore studying sculpture; Angelica Ingeman, a senior in painting; Kaylee Weyrauch, a senior with a concentration on photography; and Johnny Beaver, a senior with a focus on painting and conceptual art.
The Plinkiewisch scholarship was established in 1995 through the estate of Helen Edwina Plinkiewisch, a 1929 graduate of Oregon State Agricultural College, in memory of her mother, Amy Rosina Hansen. The award is granted for one year and continues with a quarterly review. Once a student has received a Plinkiewisch scholarship, a renewal process each spring determines if they will continue to receive support for additional years of study.
The Fairbanks Gallery is located in Fairbanks Hall, 220 S.W. 26th St., Corvallis. It is open to the public 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and there is no charge for admission.
