About the exhibition:

This exhibition represents a cross section of the artwork created by SAMC Art + Design students over the course of 2021. Through drawing, painting and mixed-media works these emerging artists respond to the complex and constantly shifting realities of living and studying during a global pandemic.

An empty chair, a solitary figure, a disquieting internal landscape. Themes of interiority, dislocation and a longing for connection unite these stylistically diverse works. During this year of profound loss, isolation, and uncertainty art has served many as a way to make sense of this new reality. In the midst of unrelenting change these students have persisted in the slow and attentive work of honing their craft, deepening their creative capacities and discovering their authentic visual voice. Through the faithful work of simple attention these young artists reveal the hidden gifts of this moment: beauty in longing, solitude in isolation, and faith in the face of uncertainty.
