Fall Gallery Reception

Current exhibition:

Brianna Matey – CAS (Computer Science) 2027

Artist Statement:

My work is an expression of my thoughts, imagination, and myself onto multiple prints of paper. I explore through multiple mediums, but my favorite is painting. My inspiration is probably my mom because she is the reason why I am a determined, and artistic person, so I do love to spend all day creating portraits special to me, and I love to see her smile when I show her.
