Moudy Gallery, TCU - Self: The Physical and the Emotional
Exhibition on Display: April 26, 2021 - April 30, 2021
TCU Studio Art BFA Thesis Exhibition featuring Taylor Cuozzo, Brittany Murray, and Adam Verhelle
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, The Art Galleries at TCU will be unable to welcome
public audiences in-person for any exhibitions or events this spring and until further
notice. We will be offering “by-appointment only” viewings for current TCU students,
faculty, and staff only for both Moudy Gallery and Fort Worth Contemporary Arts. Email
us at email@example.com to make an appointment.
While we are sad not to have you with us in person, we will make sure you have lots of
virtual and digital options to engage with the work of our students, faculty and guest
artists. The Art Galleries at TCU will continue to showcase high quality art and artistic
practice by contemporary artists.
The Art Galleries at TCU present Resurface, the 2021 BFA Studio Exhibition, featuring work
by Taylor Cuozzo, Brittany Murray, and Adam Verhelle. Resurface will be a gathering of
paintings and sculptural pieces and will be on view at Moudy Gallery from April 26 – 30, 2021.
Join the graduating BFA candidates for Resurface as they present their capstone exhibition,
which is the culmination of their time at TCU, including a semester that turned into
producing work during a historic lockdown. The work displayed includes large-scale paintings
and sculptures and will showcase the unfaltering nature of these artists and their work.
As a TCU community we experienced effects, good or bad, from the coronavirus pandemic. The
collective candidates felt the weight of those effects when last spring they were pulled
from their studios and sent to zoom. Resurface is their rise out of the lockdown while
still navigating through the limited contact allowed with the artistic community.
Taylor Cuozzo grew up in New Jersey and is a part of a large family. She is currently a
BFA candidate at Texas Christian University as she pursues her painting practice in the
Studio Art department. Her work is influenced by her Christian faith and the environment.
As a painter she explores landscapes influenced by the emotional connection humanity feels
when immersed in the vast environment. Her immersive large-scale paintings are a place of
rest and peace.
Brittany Murray lives and works in Dallas, Texas and is currently pursuing her BFA at
Texas Christian University. Murray makes work that investigates modern society’s obsession
for material goods while maintaining no commitment to materials or techniques in her own
Adam Verhelle was born and raised in Jacksonville, Texas and he is currently enrolled in
Texas Christian University as a Studio Art BFA major. His work is focused around technical
and material investigation as he uses the paint in his work to create sculptural form.
Driven by his impulsiveness he focuses on a multitude of different subjects with every
piece becoming an obsession.
