Alumni and Friends

With a solid foundation that includes famous emeritus faculty such as Mark Sponenburgh and Gordon Gilkey, to a long history of renowned printmaking, to current cutting edge work in photography, digital design and mixed media, art at Oregon State has a proud past and a bright future.

The support of our alumni and friends is more important than ever and we truly appreciate your generosity.

This year a new giving circle called the OSU Friends of the Arts has been created to help recognize and thank our contributors. By making a gift of $1,000 or more to support music, art, or theatre at Oregon State, you can become a member of the OSU Friends of the Arts giving circle for the next year. Your gift also qualifies for the OSU President’s Circle. You can choose what to support in those programs including scholarships, faculty, art shows, equipment and more.

What We Are Doing Now

Grads, we'd love to hear from you.  You can email updates to Julie Green at

2008 BFA OSU Fine Arts graduates Jessica Breedlove Latham and Lindsay Jordan Kretchun founded Duplex in 2012. What began as an art blog is now a gallery at 219 NW Couch Street, Portland.  Showing local and national-level artists, including several with OSU ties, Latham and Kretchun have created a wonderful space for both art and community. Lindsay Jordan Kretchan received a MFA in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute.  Jessica Breedlove Latham received an MA in Museum Studies from Syracuse University, NY.  Stop in and say hello next time you are in Portland!
