The Trinity University Department of Art and Art History presents EGRESS, an exhibition of work by six senior art majors: Stella Luck, Skylr McCormick-Isom, Kate Nuelle, Bella Peters, Stephen Sumrall-Orsak, and Cole Warner. The collected works utilize a wide range of media including, but not limited to, photography, ceramics, sculpture, charcoal, paint, and fibers. In Egress, the artists explore themes related to material, form, technology, loss, growth and self-discovery. The exhibition title, EGRESS, represents the conclusion of these artists’ experience at Trinity and their emergence into life after and beyond.

The featured artists have organized the exhibition (including publicity and installation) under the supervision of department faculty and staff.

The exhibition is free and open to members of the campus community, and will adhere to campus COVID guidelines.
