The University of New Mexico Honors College is getting ready to unveil the creative works of honors students in the exhibition, "New Visions."
The exhibit will showcase a sampling of the artistic talent of honors students. The works range in media from photography to digital collage to video, yet the conceptual ideas focus on notions of identity, power and perception.

- Coti Kremer
- Tina Memarian
- Sydney Nesbit
- Madison Otero
- Alana Robinson
- Taryn Roe
Roe's work explores the relationships that are lost and forged between analog and digital technology, Kremer's work looks at the politics of hair. Faculty say the personal connection that each artist has to the issues explored in the work coupled with each concept's universal appeal is unique and illustrates a sophisticated approach.
"What moves me about the work in the honors exhibition, New Visions, is the breadth and depth of the work both artistically and conceptually," said Megan Jacobs, associate professor. "This exhibit illustrates artistic creativity and innovation as well as well-conceived concepts that will indubitably resonate with viewers."
New Visions will be on view in the Honors College gallery from Sept. 13 to Dec. 20. There will be a public opening Tuesday, Sept. 14 starting at 4 p.m.
Additionally, the Honors College will showcase printmaking works on loan from Tamarind Institute. Works include prints from contemporary artists Chris Ballantyne, Stella Ebner, Danielle Orchard, and Robin Winters.
