Mindscapes Senior Art Exhibition

The second featured exhibition is Mindscapes, the senior art exhibition featuring the culmination of the Fine Arts/Art majors’ undergraduate degree at the University of Guam.

As described by the seniors:

“Escape reality and enter into four artists’ personal mindscapes. From donning armor and tackling mental health, to dragons and constructs that quake the earth under their feet, or finding a strange sense of past and eerie tranquility inside distant dreams, there will be a mindscape for each viewer to become encapsulated into.

Mindscapes will feature art by:

Jan Fernandez

Growing up, Jan Fernandez has always sought ways to express thoughts and emotions in some form of art. Inspired by artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Frida Kahlo, she aims to create art that is personal and reflects one of the most important things to her—mental health.

Callisto Dougherty

Born in North Carolina Callisto Dougherty has moved all around the United Dtate and most recently resides in Guam. Wanting to share a sense of adventure she invites you to be whisked away into a fantastical realm brought to life through animation.

Margaret Espino

Margaret Espino was born in Guam and has developed an interest in the printmaking process during her time at the University of Guam. With a life-long fascination of writing and illustration, she now seeks to share stories with more than just words.

Justin Guyos

Justin Guyos was born in Guam and was enraptured by art since he was a child. Inspired by the works of Walt Disney, Salvadore Dali, and other artists who base their works on their imagination, he wants to do the same as well. Developing his art skills in Notre Dame

and University of Guam, he sees art as crafting whole new worlds full of characters drawn from one’s mind for the viewer to explore and interact.

Mindscapes is sponsored by Bank of Guam, Copy Express, and the UOG College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.

Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, call (671) 735-2965 or email
