    Samara Weaver (BArch '11, MArch '13) Exhibits Naturalistic Artwork at Delaware's Mezzanine Gallery

    Author: Emily Herbein

    Samara Weaver (BArch ‘11, MArch ‘13) has always been drawn to buildings, spaces, and the emotions they can evoke. She ties her early love of architecture to a childhood memory of Philadelphia’s grand, neoclassical 30th Street Station.   When deciding on her education, Weaver chose to obtain both an undergraduate and graduate degree in architecture rather than the fine arts due to her search for a more “structured job market,” she recently told Art Watch Podcast.   Read More

    In Profile: Aaron Ricketts (BFA '17)

    Author: Emily Herbein

    Since graduating from Tyler with a BFA in Photography in 2017, Aaron Ricketts has risen as a high-profile Philadelphia creative with an arresting, surrealist-inspired style. His work explores every day themes, typically through portraiture, paired against a backdrop of stunning digital manipulation and striking detail. He has traveled a circuitous path that led from high school to a year in college to ordinary jobs to the Air Force and back to college again.  Along the way, he swapped his interest in photography for studying graphic design (his first college did not have a photography program) but eventually found his way back to his first love — learning the fundamentals of photography over two years at a community college and then transferring to Tyler to earn a bachelor’s degree.  Read More
