Strength, authenticity, and sensitivity. Meredith College is proud to present the Fall 2021 Senior Art Exhibition: reflect: loudly, resiliently, vulnerably, a show that examines the ways in which individuals represent their identities through their own unique voices and experiences. Running November 18-December 6 in the Frankie G. Weems Gallery, the exhibition features work from five emerging artists: Evan Apple, Maureen Fitts, Leah Jensen, Jordyn Quarandillo, and Kasey Vandenboom. These artists bring forth five honest and unique perspectives, aiming to invite others into a space not only to view documented introspections, but to reflect on their own values and identities as well.
The exhibition consists of a wide variety of work, including installation, mixed media paintings, digital artwork, watercolor paintings, printmaking, fiber works, sculptural forms, and more. The five artists utilize the gallery as a space to display their explorations of a range of topics, including racial identity, the effects of COVID-19, femininity, vulnerability, and social injustice. Despite the vast and striking differences of each artists’ style and chosen media, these works are unified by the common theme of introspection and reflection on the world they fit into. The featured artists urge all who enter the gallery to answer this question: In what ways do you reflect and share your narrative?
