Finishing out the journal’s second year, Ovis Issue 4 features more impressive work from MCC students and staff.
Issue 4 includes work from Crystal Arambula, Morgana Campbell, Kaitlyn Cativiela, Megan Chadsey, Victoria Cullis, Alexander Exley, Desiree Hamodey, Marylynn Hernandez, Angelica Isela Hoover, Alida McDermott, Cat Nelson, Clayton Shankles, Sterling Silverman, Amber Tacey, Alieska Tor-Sablon, Nicole Vawter, and Cassidy Worden.
MCC instructor Susan Kreuger again curated pieces from her spring ceramics class; ceramics art in Issue 4 comes from Campell, Hamodey, Nelson, Shankles, and Vawter.
In Issue 4’s fiction section, two pieces by Exley and Hernandez should be read with the lights on. Chadsey offers science fiction, and Tacey returns with an evocative narrative.
Poetry for Issue 4 comes from Exley, McDermott, Worden, Silverman, Hoover, and Cativiela. Each piece is rich with imagery and unexpected language.
Tor-Sablon returns with a second installment in her series of zombie apocalypse comics. Arambula’s illustrations are whimsical and colorful. Photography from Cullis completes Issue 4.
