    • Charcoal Landscape Study Artist: Katherine Tombaugh ’24 Statement: “[This piece was] made to strengthen my skills in proportion, perspective, texture, and most importantly value. For the charcoal specifically, the process was definitely a challenge in terms of detail and texture due to charcoal’s tendency to blur and smudge.”

    • Untitled Artist: Abigail Murphy ’23 Statement: “This piece is in oil pastel on paper.”

    • Lurching Artist: Anonymous Statement: “That which does not kill us makes us hurt.”

    • Family Artist: Ayelet Kaminski ’22 Accompanying Statement: “This piece is a study of a photograph taken of my older sisters, Tamar and Naomi, with both of my grandmothers, Zahava and Lucy. All incredibly strong women who inspire me to do better and keep going everyday.”

    • Nostalgia Artist: Vivian Wang ’23 Statement: “My inspiration for this piece was a picture that I found of myself when I was four, and I wanted to evoke this nostalgia I was feeling in my art!”

    • Turkey Tails Artist: Beyla Ridky ’24 Statement: “[This photo] is part of a series titled ‘Impermanence.”

    • Was, Is, and Will be Anxious Artist: Asher Joseph ’24 Statement: “And my future self will be anxious about what my pastself did not do.”
