“The show will be a fantastic opportunity for people to come see the work of upcoming artists in the community, and also to enjoy a vibrant event with live music and great food,” says fourth-year student Pilar Guinea. “The work itself is an incredible mix of traditional and experimental art media, along with investigations of how to use art as a means of expression. It is a show that should be attended by everyone who loves art and a good time!”
