Charles Pansirna was the go-to photographer in Chicago’s Lithuanian community between 1916 and 1953. His portraits of weddings, babies, and funerals were the pride of immigrants building a life in America. It can be detected in shots of workers at their factory jobs, families at leisure in the park, or portraits of WWI soldiers dressed to go “over there.” Decidedly, these photos were taken for remembrance, but what is it that we recall? This exhibition examines a cross-section of the 1500+ Pansirna photos housed at Purdue Galleries in order to answer that question.
Two contemporary photographers have been invited to show their work as a compliment and counterpoint to the narrative of pride and tradition. Artist Owen Mundy examines his “military family tree” through its military portraits, revealing the construction of military family imagery. Min Kim Park’s postmodern mother-daughter portraits question how much traditional portraiture leaves off the record. Pansirna’s photos give us much to recall from history, but upon close examination we begin to wonder just how much we have forgotten.

Quilt National is a biennial juried competition dedicated to the promotion of the contemporary art quilt. It is a showcase for new work produced in the two-year span prior to the exhibition. Its focus is to provide the viewer with a visual presentation of innovative trends in the medium of layered and stitched fabric.
The works in a Quilt National exhibit display a reverence for the lessons taught by the makers of the heritage quilts. Many of the works hold fast to the traditional methods of piecing and patching. At the same time, however, the Quilt National artist is intrigued by the challenge of expanding the boundaries of traditional quiltmaking by utilizing the newest materials and technologies. These innovative works generate strong emotional responses in the viewer while at the same time fulfilling the creative need of the artist to make a totally individual statement.
This exhibit is presented in collaboration with the Center for Families at Purdue University, in celebration of its 20th anniversary.
