Trust the Process reflects the evolution of each artist’s concepts and work over the past semester, using the tools of self- and faculty-critiques. Exhibiting artists include Emily Allen, Julia Dry, Des Dumais, Bruce Forbes, Donald L. Patten, Sophia Reyes and Jared Winslow.

Trust the Process is on view from May 4-23, and the public is welcome to visit the gallery in Jewett Hall, which is open Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The UMA community and public are invited to the opening reception and artist talk on May 4.
