Coe College will host "Structure," a printmaking and installation exhibit by artist Dustyn Bork, as well as a multi-media exhibition entitled "the complete book of space travel" by artist Cheryl Wilgren Clyne in an upcoming art show. The exhibitions will be on display in the Marvin Cone and Eaton-Buchan Galleries of Sinclair Auditorium, with an opening reception in the Sinclair lobby on Friday, Oct. 24, from 5 - 7 p.m. All of the events are free and open to the public, with gallery hours from 4 - 6 p.m. daily from Oct. 25 through Nov. 16.

Brief biographies of the artists who are exhibiting at the show are as follows:

Dustyn Bork earned his MFA in printmaking from Indiana University in Bloomington in 2002, and his BFA in printmaking from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1999. His artwork is deceptively simple evoking cultural notions of pattern, color and design.

Bork is currently assistant professor of art at Lyon College, a small, private liberal arts college in Batesville, Arkansas. His work has been exhibited in numerous juried printmaking exhibitions including this past year at Los Angeles Print Society: Push and Pull, Shy Rabbit Print International 5, and the International Printmaking Biennial of Douro in Portugal.

Cheryl Wilgren Clyne was born in Duluth, Minnesota. She received her MFA from the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities in 2008. During graduate school, her investigations included work in film, photography, installation and social practice. Her work has been exhibited at the Walker Art Center, the Weisman Art Center and the Soap Factory.

"the complete book of space travel" has been developed in part by Clyne's interest in costumes, props, rituals and environments. She currently works in the Twin Cities as an artist and curator.
