Melanie explains her passion for graphic design : “I think graphic design is something you see everyday, yet people take it for granted. I’m glad I have the opportunity to show my work in Eastern’s gallery. I think it shows people that graphic design is an art form and should be viewed as such.”
Melanie’s show will be available for viewing May 5–9.
Victoria Montoya from Cimarron, N .M., speaks of her art work : “ Art allows me to step into my mind, pull out an idea, and watch it come to life.”
Victoria’s pieces are mostly paintings featuring themes of “macabre and bizarre with a touch of personal emotion.” Victoria hopes to "continue making art that will peel the layers back and find the vulnerable truth for myself and others.”
