Reception for alum Mia Breedlove’s opening night invites a full house to ponder all that is “In Process.”

On Oct. 13 the St. Edward’s Fine Arts Center welcomed Mia Carameros Breedlove, a 2013 graduate, back to the hilltop for the opening of her exhibition “In Process.” The reception was preceded by a talk she gave to guests, the first one held in the Fine Arts building since the start of the pandemic.

After the artist talk, students, faculty, friends and family of the artist enjoyed the provided snacks and refreshments in the hallway and made their way to the gallery. Upon entering the gallery, guests were greeted with various photographs, paintings and even porcelain-dipped chamomile plants. 

The “In Process” exhibition is being held on campus in the Fine Arts Center’s gallery from Oct. 13  to Nov. 4.

“I feel like this whole show and body of work is really a culmination of my community and how I couldn’t have done this without so many people,” said Breedlove. “I really owe so much gratitude to a lot of people.” (Evan Younger / Hilltop Views)
