Ellis' work is video installation dealing with environmental appreciation.

“Conservation, renewable energy and environmental awareness need to be as common as reading, writing and arithmetic,” Ellis said.

Gentry's portion of the exhibit will be presented in a mixed-media format, using sculpture and mono prints, dealing with societal issues of obesity and overindulgence.

“Our stomachs are gas tanks that have been overfilled and are spilling fatty oil into the streams of our vascular systems,” Gentry said.
