"There is a Little Child and He Never Leaves," works by Bernardo Trevizo, Jr.

As a local artist, Bernardo has created various animation, film and sculpture projects, as well as being a cohost of the Midwest Digest Podcast. his exhibition confronts memories from childhood, including memories of the home that serves as a space where all moments live. He creates images that serve as metaphors for the impressions that childhood events had on him. His objective for the viewer is to empathize with those images and to not see these works as one story, but rather a collection of different narratives.

"Untitled," works by Ian Walker Stewart
