Christine Oatman: Stories of Innocence and Experience: Altered Mid-20th Century Children’s Books in Pedagogic Tableaux

January 11–March 7, 2020

Opening Reception: Friday, January 10, 6:30–8:30 PM

 

Making art for more than forty years, Christine Oatman has created work that has ranged from large-scale outdoor work and public art projects to intimate, intricate assemblages, all showing a sensitivity to materiality and objects. Her upcoming body of work will show her private responses to topical issues through the lens of pedagogy, reflecting her decades of teaching experience, as well as her own classroom memories growing up in 1950s San Diego.


A life-long San Diegan, Oatman returned to the area in 1971 after receiving her BA from Scripps College and MFA from Cranbrook. In San Diego, she began making temporary outdoor works dealing with the California landscape. Oatman’s work has been shown both locally and internationally at such institutions as Seibu Museum in Tokyo, Brooklyn Museum, Kansas City Art Museum, San Diego Museum of Art, and Cannon Art Gallery in Carlsbad, with solo shows at the University Gallery at SDSU, Boehm Gallery at Palomar College, Contemporary Crafts Gallery in Portland, Oregon, Visual Arts Center of Alaska in Anchorage, and San Diego International Airport.
