Written by Sherrel Jones

The Texas Tech University School of Art will present eight one-week solo shows by Master of Fine Arts candidates.

The work to be displayed will represent the culmination of each student’s research during their tenure at Texas Tech. Areas of study include ceramics, jewelry design and metalsmithing, painting and drawing, photography, printmaking and sculpture.

The artists and exhibitions are as follows:

  • Emily Schuhmann’s exhibit will be April 19-24. She will display large-scale jewelry pieces inspired by the qualities of biological imagery.
  • Sarah Roberts’ exhibit will be April 26-May 1. She will display her jewelry, which will center around an early traumatic event and are based on Freudian psychology.
