“Awakenings,” an MFA thesis exhibition by Eugenia Ortiz, will open with a reception from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at KU’s Art & Design Gallery on KU’s campus. The exhibit runs until Friday. This exhibition will be an installation of many works created with mixed media that primarily incorporates fibers. The conceptual idea for the show is about shifting and releasing destructive patterns and beliefs that keeps so many people trapped in negative or harmful situations that do not allow them to reach or express their full potentials. However, by consciously making a decision to change, they can become awakened to the full beauty of themselves and life. Gallery hours are 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Sundays, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Mondays-Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Thursdays and 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Fridays.
