CORVALLIS, Ore. – “Paraphrase the Invisible,” an exhibition of works by Seattle sculptor Erin Meyer, is on display Oct. 8 through Nov. 1 at the Fairbanks Gallery at Oregon State University in Corvallis.

Meyer’s work illustrates how living with a disability is inherently non-binary: that the disabled experience is positive and negative, biological and social, personal and political. Meyer’s work aims to promote a new conception of the disabled body, showing that those living with a disability are no better, or worse, than their able-bodied counterparts.

Meyer was born in Anchorage, Alaska, and currently lives and works in Seattle. In 2018, she received her master of fine arts from the University of Washington.

The Fairbanks Gallery is located in Fairbanks Hall, 220 SW 26th St., Corvallis. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with extended hours, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., the third Thursday of every month. Admission is free.
