Todd Madigan Gallery is pleased to present the latest iteration of our annual graduating senior’s exhibition, titled The Last Straw. This year’s group of works reflects the diversity of our art department and the wide range of practices and concerns of our students. In this exhibition you will find works in traditional media such as fibers, ceramics and painting, as well as sound pieces, handmade books and installations. The artists explore their experiences of life in the Central Valley and the impact of its landscapes, communities, and histories on the formation of their identities as artists and individuals.

Please come and join us to celebrate this year’s graduating seniors:

Kayla Bryant, Naomi Carrizales, Bethany Davis, Sofia Galvan, Andrelle Garcia, Nathaniel Green, Erik Guillen, Gabrielle Jordan, Faith Lewis, Philip J Martinez, Juan Ochoa, Valerie Peña, Briana Rivera, Basim Shaktah, Kaitlin Smith, Mikael Solares, Julia Stewart, Samuel Tomasello, Gelacia Torivio, Keren Valenzuela, Tristan Watson, Mercedes Zamora

On May 1, at 5pm, Miki Garcia, Director of the Arizona State University Art Museum will

give a lecture in our Visual Arts building about her work and practice. She is also the visiting adjudicator to select this year’s recipient of “The George” – the best-in-show award that is named after George Ketterl (1939 – 2010), our fondly remembered Professor in Painting.
