She currently lives in Corvallis, Oregon but lived in Freeport, Texas where a LNG import/export facility was built.

Samm Newton: Creative Practice

Creative Practice is a collection of work from Environmental Arts and Humanities graduate student Samm Newton. Pieces on view include recent, not so recent, finished, unfinished, successful, and unsuccessful paintings produced as part of her graduate studies exploring how humans pursue and produce knowledge about the ocean. Incorporating studies and mistakes alongside more polished pieces highlights not only the very process of knowledge inquiry she is studying, but also a process that we can all relate to—practice.
