Boyer of Stapleton, Nebraska, will graduate in May 2021 with a Bachelor of Arts in Family Consumer Sciences, with an option in Design and Merchandising, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Art, with an option in Graphic Design. Boyer will exhibit ceramics, photography, graphic design, wire sculpture, and stained glass.
“My artwork combines the beauty and simplicity of nature, along with the organic and geometric shapes of the world around me. I hope to show people that no matter the designs and styles I use in my artwork, there is still some element of beauty discovered in each piece,” Boyer said.
Conner plans to graduate in May 2021 with a Bachelor of Science in Education with a field endorsement in Art (PK-12) after student teaching in North Platte, Nebraska, in the spring semester. Conner, a native of Orient, Ohio, will exhibit an assortment of work including ceramic pieces, prints, and self-portraiture.
“Creating helps me feel connected to the world, especially with so much going on around us, and my art reflects that connection,” Conner said.
Macomber of Arthur, Nebraska, will graduate in May 2021 with a Bachelor of Arts in Art, with an option in Graphic Design. Macomber will exhibit ceramics, paintings, photography, stained glass, and graphic designs.
“Most of my artwork is based on nature and my perception of it. I love taking photos and painting abstractly,” Macomber said.
Wright will graduate in December with a Bachelor of Arts in Art, with an option in Graphic Design. Wright, a native of Alliance, Nebraska, will exhibit paintings, prints, graphite and charcoal drawings, sculpture, and graphic design.
“As artists, we see the world a little differently, taking note of the nuances of ordinary life. Achieving inspiration is not the difficult part. Instead it is making the first mark on that void of white and pressing on to create something,” Wright said.
