Press Release

The Frankie G. Weems Gallery at Meredith College invites you to the 2024 senior art exhibition, Ruminate: Chew On This. Tasha Aaron, Kayla Cooper, Shelby Cox, Arianne Gonzalez, Sara Grace Lane, Karlie Mullis, Emma Relota, and Sara-Rose Spann are excited to showcase their unique bodies of work. 

The graduating artists have compiled their original artworks to culminate in this spring’s thought provoking exhibition. Aptly titled, Ruminate encourages audiences to “feast” on the abundant narratives, social issues, and expressions of vulnerability poured into each piece with care and intentionality. The artists developed a deeper understanding of their own lives and the world around them through the creation of their artwork. With media ranging from stone carving and ceramics, to charcoal drawings and paintings, the exhibition evokes contemplation and conversation. The artists’ only instruction is to “chew on this.” 

Ruminate will be on display from April 11th–May 5th, 2024 in the Frankie G. Weems Gallery at the Gaddy-Hamrick Art Center on the Meredith College campus. The gallery is open weekdays from 9 am–5 pm and weekends from 2 pm–5 pm. The opening reception will be held on April 11th at 5 pm–7 pm in the Weems Gallery. The gallery talk will take place in Room 137 at the Gaddy-Hamrick Art Center from 5:30 pm–6:30 pm. The gallery is located at 3800 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC 27607.
