Moving Pictures: A Survey Exhibition of Works by Deborah Oropallo

Southern Oregon University’s Schneider Museum of Art (SMA) is thrilled to announce its upcoming exhibition, "Moving Pictures: A Survey Exhibition of Works by Deborah Oropallo and Collaborators." Opening April 18 at 5 p.m., the exhibition invites art enthusiasts to delve into the captivating world of Deborah Oropallo and witness her artistic evolution spanning montage, sculpture, installation, and media work. 

More than just a retrospective, "Moving Pictures" amplifies Oropallo's artistic journey, shedding light on her significant contributions to contemporary art. Born in Hackensack, New Jersey in 1954, Oropallo received her BFA from Alfred University and her MA/MFA from the University of California at Berkeley. Initially trained as a painter, she seamlessly integrates mixed media techniques such as photomontage, video, printmaking, and painting into her practice. 

“It will be a complete Deborah Oropallo museum takeover!” exuded Schneider Museum of Art Executive Director Scott Malbaurn. “Oropallo and artworks made with her collaborators; Andy Rappaport, Michael Goldin and Jeremiah Franklin will not only engulf all four of the museum's galleries but also locations outside on the SOU campus and within the Susanne Holme Hall’s basement.” Malbaurn went to say, “The SMA team is working hard to bring the artist's vision to life. Audiences will be treated to witnessing this survey exhibition, seeing how an artist transitions from painting to working with technology such as digital video and immersive installations. There are four essays to accompany the exhibition which includes SOU's Alma Rosa Alvarez. Special thanks to Deborah Oropallo, Andy Rappaport and Catharine Clark of the Catharine Clark Gallery for working with us again.” 

"Moving Pictures: A Survey Exhibition of Works by Deborah Oropallo and Collaborators" promises to be a visual feast, offering viewers a glimpse into the boundless creativity of one of contemporary art's most dynamic figures. Don't miss this extraordinary opportunity to experience the transformative power of Oropallo's work.
