NEOMAGIC, juried by Marisa Sage and Tiffany Santos, is an exhibition featuring geological-inspired artworks by both undergraduate and graduate students from New Mexico State University. With NEOMAGIC, the student version of the UAG’s GEOMAGIC exhibition, it was our intention to provide NMSU students an opportunity to show their work for an entire semester in conjunction with an exhibition featuring internationally renowned artists. This juried student show presented a wonderful opportunity for students to demonstrate their talent and skills while responding to both the contemporary art on display in the University Art Gallery and the Zuhl Collection specimens.
The featured student artists and their works are:
Jennifer Abeyta, Mirrored Defense
Debbie Jo Baxter, Skull
Maggie Day, Offering
Felicia Castro, Glam Rock #1, Glam Rock #2, and Glam Rock #3
Rachel Cover, Untitled (Work #1)
Joshua Flores, Untitled
Eva Flynn, Badlands
Carissa Staples, Opal Essence
Lara Teich, The Damele, The Sardonyx, and the Abalone and Cabochon Potpourri
