Each semester a select few junior or senior art majors who are creating outstanding work are chosen for the Honor’s Studio Program by the Department of Art Practice Faculty.

Alma Schrage, 2014

Luz Anguiano-Reyes

Art is a way for me to process memories of times that my mind has suppressed and that occasionally rise to the surface. In my most current works, I seek to process my experiences of growing up with an alcoholic father.

Mihovil Buljan

Mihovil Buljan is a figurative artist who is fascinated with human experience and interaction. His representational paintings and sculpture discuss and question the essence of a human in the 21st century.

Hansen Deng

I paint the movement of moments that seem to linger with quiet solidity. The process of painting is of faith and patience, for brushstrokes to capture a living moment that moves with earnestness. Brushstrokes embody the singularity of being alive, the simplicity in nonsense.

Natalie Mal

While our minds exist in a physical world, they exist in an abstract space. My abstract paintings explore how we transform these abstract mindsets into physical manifestations.

Alma Schrage

Deaf, but raised in the hearing world, for me the connection between sound and understanding has always been tenuous but omnipresent. I explore the visual sense and auditory nonsense that constitute my own life and mirror these back to the participant/viewer through transcription, translation, and storytelling.

My work is about displacement and reformation. 

Agueda Viveros Wong

My work has always been about a fascination with materials- the discoveries of things like papier mâché are significant amongst my childhood adventures. The exploration of structure in regards to materials has spread into a search amongst topics such as anatomy and human relationships, with a closer inspection of emotional connections.
