David Pauls

David Pauls, from Dallas, Oregon, is a senior art major with a concentration in sculpture and a minor in sustainability. Being close to the wilderness for most of his life has influenced his work in a variety of ways. His focus on drawing and steel sculpture in his upcoming show explores many of these influences through forms, textures and subject matter in abstracted uses of his chosen mediums, all of which strives to exhibit the forms of the natural world that have fascinated him for most of his life.

Ellen Schlabach

Ellen Schlabach, from Goshen, is an art education major. Her exhibit work features a series of prints and several paintings, which feature fine details and intricate line work of design elements, figures and plant life. Her paintings are large, bizarre compilations of buildings and architecture. Her work alludes to childhood forts and secret places. She works to portray a sense of personal sanctuary, exploring the idea that you can create a sense of home, comfort and ownership for your surroundings.
