The Senior Thesis Exhibition showcases the work of Jane Aviv Brenner, Erin Bucklew, Morgan Welch and Alix Lindley, four senior artists graduating from the art department. The work ranges in variety of technique, subject and medium but all were designed to tell the story of each artist.
Morgan Welch’s landscape paintings challenge how viewers normally look at nature. Welch pushes for vivid fields of color using thick application of paint rather than detail. Those aspects are what give the painting their beautiful abstract qualities. Welch says that, “I hope the audience will engage in the beauty rather than the reality.” In her portraits, Welch focuses on the fluidity of paint, color, contrast, and realism. Her use of bright colors is apparent as she highlights the importance of each subject.
Jane Aviv Brenner’s watercolors are an exploration of her own emotions through the portraits of others. Each colorful and highly saturated piece documents and reflects not only a moment in time, but a sentiment. Brenner uses her watercolors as a remedy, expressing herself freely in subject, texture, and color.
Erin Bucklew’s drawings are composed of small lines that make a complex image. One of the subjects is a dreamscape. This is made up of contour lines woven into a complex landscape. The other subject is animals, the marks imitate the fur of the animal. She mainly concentrates on the texture and color of the image.
Alix Lindley’s photography is an investigation of personal relationships. Through her intimate and delicate photographs she explores the complex didactic nature of human interaction. By using self-portraiture she is able to blend the photographic process with the emotional experience of the subject.
The Senior Thesis Exhibition highlights the astounding work of these dedicated students preparing to graduate from Notre Dame of Maryland University with their B.A.s in studio art and progressing into the world as artists.

FutureCare Cherrywood has partnered with the American Lung Association to provide monthly Better Breathers Club meetings for the community. Meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of every month, 2-3pm at FutureCare Cherrywood in Reisterstown, MD. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 20th, 2-3pm.
Better Breathers Clubs meet regularly for one to two hours to provide support, education and socialization to people with COPD or another chronic lung disease, their family members and their caregivers. A facilitator coordinates and oversees the meetings, brings in featured speakers, and collects information and feedback from the participants. Members themselves can provide ideas for meeting topics, organize communication networks, and even help plan special events. An American Lung Association staff person provides ongoing support to the group.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, affects 1 in 5 adults over the age of 45. That means you or someone you know could have COPD and not even know it. Millions do.
