Alumna Kristina E. Knipe (MFA 2016) and Kevin Brisco Jr. have a joint show at Good Children Gallery opening on Saturday, July 8th from 6-10 p.m. with a walkthrough by both artists at 6 p.m.

Kristina E. Knipe's exhibit of photographs titled, Talisman, explores the relationship between sensuality and spirituality through visual opulence and invites the viewer to peer into intimate scenes. Kevin Brisco Jr.'s exhibit of paintings titled, (For) What Is(s) Worth, addresses worth in a society that places high value on specific objects and routinely undervalues specific people. Good Children Gallery, located at 4037 St. Claude Avenue, is open 12-5pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The show will run from July 8th through August 6th.
