Madeleine Waring (B.F.A. in Studio Art, 2018)
Abstract: Body of work is meant to empower women and draw attention to the inequalities taking place in society, inspired by past feminist artists and current events.

Siena Pullini (B.F.A. in Studio Art, 2018)
Abstract: Body of work is an expression of loneliness and isolation—an attempt to illuminate the way in which a person can feel alienated, even from themselves.

Claire Gleason (B.F.A. in Studio Art, 2018)
Abstract: Body of work speaks about duality and an awakening into the eyes of acceptance, kept within the realm of curiosity.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. Some pieces will be available for purchase.
