J.M. MOUDY GALLERY 7 PM
Five Designers. Twenty-three collective years in training. One show.
The exploration of design drew them together from various points of origin and they are joining up for a final show before launching into their next ventures.
These five are exceptional creative problem solvers who consistently push past the known and expected.
They go beyond.
MEET THE CREW
With a life as organized as her desktop, Alyssa is the keyboard shortcut queen. She starts, continues, and finishes each day with an Instagram-worthy breakfast spread. In between these meals, she’s finding the funniest memes or checking up on the St. Louis Cardinals’ standings. Although she is a lover of baby animals of any kind and would dream of owning a mini farm one day, you can most likely find her back in STL enjoying a classic IMOS pizza with a side of toasted ravs.
Lorelle is a free spirit and world traveler, with a collection of little doo-dads to prove it. She’s an art museum roadie and always keeps us up to date on the “dankest” pop culture phrases. As a true ATX native, Lorelle has chosen to abstain from the common practice of wearing shoes and is a proud plant mom of three tiny succulents. Needless to say, without Lorelle, Austin has become a little less weird. Catch her in the future at a rooftop in New York, spinning tunes (always featuring Kanye).
Meg’s body temperature runs a little cold, but when it comes to her heart, she’s as warm as can be. This could be due to her sunshine-exposed upbringing in Tucson, AZ, where she’s currently wanted for illegal wildflower-picking. With an abundance of knowledge on pies, she hopes to further her education at Le Cordon Bleu en France… but she should probably learn French first. For now, Meg is a Humor Hunter and Copy Connoisseur, always equipped with her dry wit and “If you’re not first, you’re last” attitude.
Emma is all about embracing the “basic.” She is a perky blonde with a love of pink, chick flicks, and anything “cute.” Nonetheless Emma’s quirky outlook leads to unexpected twists in design and life itself (ex: pizza with vanilla frosting… don’t knock it ‘til you try it). She has an infectious laugh and is one of the sketchiest people you will ever meet… she’s always doodling. After graduation, Emma will be packing up her micronpens and sketchbooks and headed to her next big city, wherever that may be.
Despite the counsel of multiple food specialists and reactivities, Kirstin continues to indulge in queso and candy because “Mama didn’t raise no quitter.” Her strong will and bubbly personality make her stand out in any room. She is a Process Prodigy, but despite six years of design education at TCU, her favorite color remains rainbow. After living in Fort Worth her whole life, Kirstin is over this Texas heat and she is looking to the mountains for the future. Catch her hiking the Appalachian Trail with her dog and cat in tow (both on a leash).
