Ayers is a BFA with digital media emphasis candidate whose media of choice is photography. Her show will consist of children’s photography. “In my photographs I’m trying to portray the beauty of life and the joy that little ones bring to us. Take a trip down memory lane for a minute and remind yourself of all the good times from when you were young,” said Ayers.
Kutch is also a BFA with digital media emphasis candidate, who’s work combines photography and sculpture. Her show will focus on two of her concentrations; night photography and macro photography. “For my night photography I have taken many pictures of the Milky Way, stars, the moon sunsets and some character work involving people,” said Kutch of her work. “I love doing night photography because I feel like my imagination can run wild when I frame the shot.”
