Pingry Alumni, Reba Tyson '12, Erica Cheung '14, Adam Present '17, Lauren Denitzio '02, Dan Greenfield '81, Isabella Barrionuevo '14, Evy Barnett '15 are currently showing their artworks in our online 3-D Hostetter gallery May 12th through June 12th, 2022.

Dan Greefield lives in Austin having migrated south and westward by way of New Jersey, Washington, DC and Atlanta. His love of photography began at Pingry where he fondly remembers learning the basics of photography from Michael Popp and getting creative encouragement from Peter Delman. He turned to video and film at Wesleyan University, and while his career is in marketing and business development, his passion remains photography.  From black and white film and color digital pixels to new forays in PhotoShop, he is still guided by his yearbook quote some 40 years ago - “Mehr Licht” (“More Light”).

Evy Barnett is a Brooklyn-based Graphic Designer. She graduated in 2019 from Pratt Institute and received a BFA in Communications Design and Minored in Art History. During her time at Pratt, she was co-captain of Pratt’s IHSA Equestrian Team and studied abroad in Venice focusing on printmaking and art history. She remains an active Pratt alumni member. In addition, she enjoys long distance running and currently sits on the Board of Directors for Prospect Park Track Club in Brooklyn. 

Adam Marshall Present is a Chicago-based filmmaker. While Present may happen to be his last name, a focus on being present is what binds his work together. Through experimenting with form, structure, and narrative, Present hopes to capture the moments in life that fill us with wonder and remind us why our experiences in this world can sometimes be so magical. Present often makes work in and about the natural world, and by using unconventional means. Present found a love for filmmaking at a young age and attended Northwestern University's Radio/TV/Film program, graduating in 2021. He quickly felt at home in Chicago and is excited by the emerging independent film community in the city. Present has since started working on the crew of the "One Chicago" franchise shows, as well as getting involved in some local independent productions. Present hopes to stay based in the Chicago area for a long time and be a part of growing the city's unique filmmaking voice, while continuing to push his own abilities as an artist.

Isabella Barionuevo (b. 1996) creates photographic work centered on the performance of gender through self-portraiture, still life, video, and the appropriation of existing images in mass media. By examining feminine tropes and iconography in art history, advertising, and contemporary culture, Barrionuevo investigates issues surrounding the male gaze and the forms of femininity that are in place to regulate the female body. Barrionuevo has earned a BFA in Photography from Parsons School of Design and currently lives and works in New Jersey.

They have toured internationally with their band Worriers alongside such artists as Against Me!, John K Samson, Anti Flag, Julien Baker, The Wonder Years, Camp Cope, and more.
