Opening Nov 3! Lauren Schweighardt and Joe Om

Join us for the opening of:

Lauren Schweighardt and Joe Om
BFA Professional Practice Senior Solo shows
Art and Interactive Multimedia Building Student Gallery 119
November 3rd-14th, 2021
Reception: November 3rd, 2021, 5-7 pm

The image is divided in half, with the torso of a white woman with her arms crossed on the top half, and a blurred painting of a figure leaning forward on the bottom half

LAUREN SCHWEIGHARDT explores the themes of women empowerment, positivity, reclaiming the male gaze, and self-confidence. Lauren’s exhibition includes nine women shown in both photography and collage. Each of the women was asked to choose words that they would use to describe themselves in an empowering way. This allows the women to show themselves in a stronger and confident light while enabling the viewer to see and feel their empowerment. – Instagram:

JOE OM presents his show, Little Dreams, Big Nightmares, which consists of large prints that depict his dreams during the Covid-19 lockdowns. His piece expands with the space of his installation and also explores the realm of surrealism. Instagram:
