In-Person Artists’ Reception for Escapism: Senior Art Exhibit 2021

Cal Lutheran presents the artists’ reception of Escapism, a collection of artwork from the Visual Arts Department’s senior class of 2021. This exhibit embodies the realities that these artists explored during the COVID-19 pandemic. The artwork is can be viewed in a virtual exhibit.

Jiarong Bi focuses on painting and sketching. She takes inspiration from music, film and Expressionism. Lauren Graf is a mixed media artist who draws her inspiration from vintage aesthetics and Art Nouveau illustrations. Through her art, she seeks out a more beautiful reality with a fantastical twist. Combining elements of beauty and horror, Nicholas Hayes gathers inspiration from sci fi and fantasy to create sculptural pieces that seek to exploit the aesthetic pleasure of the uncanny. Mixed media artist Nicole Ishii looks at her native Hawaiian culture in a new light through her artwork. Jasmine Alexandra O is a multimedia artist, honing her skills in the field of art and creating artwork that explores Imaginative Realism.

Join us live and in person to celebrate these amazing artists and young alumni during Homecoming Weekend.
