Co-signed by Ariel del Vecchio. Ariel del Vecchio and I are presenting a mixed media installation piece titled “Constructed Religiosity” at the Mini, a student art exhibition in Trinity’s own Neidorff Gallery. Our work has already garnered ire from a fellow art student, despite the fact that our critic weighed in before the work and our artist statements were made available to the public.

When you visit the “Mini,” Trinity’s annual competitive art exhibition featuring the work of nine students, don’t be fooled by the prayer candles and altar, the messages of female empowerment on “prayer cards” and the names of queer women on the wall. The work by Ariel del Vecchio and Abigail Wharton is a stunning example of sacrilege and white feminism at its finest, as it masterfully erases Chicana/o artists and mocks practicing Catholics. Images of...

Nine Trinity artists present their artwork Thursday at the opening reception for the “Mini,” a student art exhibit featuring installations including sculpture and painting. Julia Poage, a junior double-majoring in art and English, is showcasing her work at the exhibit. (Poage was the Trinitonian’s opinion section editor in 2017.) Her art focuses on the fragility and loss that affects the collective groups that we are a part of. “In my piece, I talk about absence...

The bright, airy Michael and Noemi Neidorff Gallery inside Trinity’s Dicke-Smith building stands empty right now. Soon, though, the gallery will display its first show of the semester, under the direction of newly-hired gallery manager Mark Martinez. Martinez, who was hired at the end of 2017 and who officially started his position at the beginning of the semester, said he is excited about being back on a university campus. “I haven’t been on a university...

Getting through the holiday season as a college student is complicated. Once finals are over, I find it hard to think about anything than other than free home-cooked meals and taking time off to eat, drink and be merry. However, I remember the overwhelming feelings of guilt that hit me when I came home after my first semester of college to find Christmas presents when I had nothing to give my friends and family in...
