Meredith Davis, a recent graduate of TCU, is passionate about painting,
literature and travel. While at TCU she participated in summer-study
programs in Hungary, Scotland ,and Mexico. Her highly expressive paintings
address the construction of feminity. Davis says, My work is not so much
about women themselves, but more of a critique of Western culture, our
representations of female identity, intimate relations, sexuality and power.
Jennifer Gassiraro, a recent graduate of TCU, is an expressionist painter
whose subject is the head. Gassiraro says concerning her work, The
traditional media of painting, drawing and printmaking allows me to create
works that have an energetic and physical presence.
T.J. Jemison is a young photographer whose work captures the
contemporary lifestyle of youth culture notably the club scene.
