Pink Tan

By Andie Thornton

This piece is a small digital edit of a picture of myself. the meaning subjective but i love the feeling it conveys, through colors and body.

Cry about it

By Chloe Vance

Most of my life I focused on realism and using only pencils. I never focused on color and I never let my own style develop. This year I’ve been doing a lot of art in my spare time. I’ve finally given myself space to explore color and style; it’s been really fun.

Butterfly Girl

By Karen Jacquez

I created an insane amount of things during quarantine. I painted, sketched, did portraits, landscapes, etc. But near the end of quarantine I discovered a new style to draw in that came so naturally to me. This was the first piece created in this new style of mine and I fell in love with everything about it. I really wanted to experiment with the way unnatural colors can show different dimensions in a persons face.

The Worst Best Friends (Anger, Pain, and Grief)

By Sophia Laing

I made this piece to represent emotions, those being anger, pain, and grief, which are some of the worst yet most common emotions to feel. They often come, together, too, giving them the name of “worst best friends”. To me, art is a way of expressing my emotions and I can show the physical feeling, as seen in this piece, although many times it is more internal than anything. 

Unclear Forecast

By Chloe Vance

I painted this because I had to paint something. Quarantine makes it really easy to do nothing. If I don’t do something creative or physical for enough time it feels like my heads going to crack open. All my thoughts and passions turn against each other and I’m left feeling conflicted about nothing in particular. This painting clashes. Lines slant into curves with poorly defined boarders. There’s light with no source in a not-so-dark darkness. There’s a lot happening and yet it still feels like there is unused space. 

The weather man is all out of predictions.  

The Magnolia Vase

By Maya Herron

The design of this painting is a design from The Magnolia Vase by Tiffany & Co. My Great Great Grandfather was the one who actually made the vase for Tiffany and Co. The vase is currently in display at the MET in New York so the painting is just a way to have it here in Tucson.

Realized

By Maggie Mirto

Realized is the final piece of my series that explores the beauty of non-traditional gender expression, especially as it relates to male femininity and fashion as a means of empowerment. I detailed a journey from shy experimentation to bold, seductive style to tranquil acceptance. Although this subject’s dress is not particularly flashy, his pose exudes a feminine grace as he gestures towards the sky. He has reached complete understanding of himself and triumphantly carries himself into the future.

Bashfulness

By Mamie Watt

The Smoker

By Tate Harper

I created this piece because I enjoy sketching people I don’t know or recognize, and I wanted to immortalize them through art. I also enjoy drawing pleasing symmetrical facial features, since it makes the art pleasing to look at.
