Retzlaff Gallery: Dewy, Past, Present, Future, BFA Thesis Exhibition
Medium: Acrylic Painting

This work represents my life experiences, past, present and future. I use paint, paper and tulle to express the history of my plans that have been steady and those that have gone array. Color helps to echo the feelings I have when looking at these time periods. My viewers can see their own feelings and patterns playing out with the texture in each painting and hopefully reminisce on their own lives.

Thorndike Gallery: Sherry Amoore, Affinity, BFA Thesis Exhibition
Medium: Photography

My photography reveals and celebrates the intrinsic beauty of human emotion in intimate moments. I focus on the authentic nature of affection and explore the raw and tender expressions of deep personal connections observed through the lens. My desire is to expose beyond words, the passion that drives the human spirit to unite. To me, black and white film eliminates the distraction of color and highlights the vulnerability of pure emotion that I try to memorialize within my images.

Meyer Memorial Gallery: Reba Crawford Hayes, It Hurts, Until it Doesn't, BFA Thesis Exhibition
Medium: Photography & Poetry

An exploration of grief, death and the relationship between mother, daughter and the places they shared.

Boise - Cascade Gallery: Kendal Cermak, Art Through Learning, Capstone Exhibition
Medium: Mixed Media

I have always been interested in teaching students how to create art. Throughout the last few months I have been able to volunteer at a local high school and teach them a lesson about Georgia O'Keeffe. I combined artworks from four different levels, and three different mediums, for the students work; and for my piece, I combined nine different mediums to create one image. Teaching gives me joy and I can't wait to pursue my career.

Art Department Chairs Gallery: Madelyn Zarraonandia, Untitled, Solo Exhibition
Medium: Oil Painting

In this series, I wanted to play with the line between what makes a landscape recognizable, and what makes it abstract. In doing so, I experimented with fluid shapes, recognizable yet unrealistic shapes, and dreamy colors. I expressed how I feel when looking at a pleasing landscape mainly through these colors and shapes to evoke different emotions such as calmness, playfulness, and liveliness.

JELD WEN Gallery: Sierra Burt, Climate Change Contemplations, Capstone Exhibition
Medium: Mixed Media

In honor of Earth Day, this gallery is an environmental educational snapshot of climate changes’ implications on individuals, society, and the planet. Seen through the eyes of the SOU community – the diversity of feelings, opinions, and passions creates a beautiful and harsh recognition of the current state of our planet. In hopes of manifesting a call to action, this gallery will inspire viewers to start making positive, eco-friendly changes in their lives.
