With one of the largest senior art exhibitions at Union College in recent history, viewers are invited to explore a variety of subjects and mediums within the gallery. The intention of this show is to stimulate the audience's psyche with what has driven our studies at Union and what has inspired us over the past four years. During their time at Union these students honed skills in sculpture, photography, painting, digital, and other mediums despite the pressure of the Covid-19 pandemic. Like phosphenes these artists explored new mediums and continued their practices in unconventional ways, and in unconventional places.

This show features 15 Union College Visual Art majors: Gabby Basil, Gavin Bibbins, Maggie Biondi, Trey Everett, Aram Festekjian, Ashley Harding, Cole Kammler, Samantha Kelley, Jessie Kirker, Dea Kothari, Anh Le, Melissa Lucano, Michelle Moina, Mallory Nelson, Rochelle Nuqui, are exhibiting the culmination of their studies in the art department.

This exhibit is free and open to the public Monday- Friday 9am - 4pm, pending college Covid-19 regulations. Funded by the Visual Arts Department and Senior Research Grants.
