The Ouroboros is an ancient — yet still familiar — symbol featuring a snake eating its own tail. The image often is used to represent self-reflexive exploration, as well as the cyclical nature of humanity. For Stevens Square Center for the Arts' latest show, "(ôr-rob'-ôr-rus)," six student artists from MCAD will explore the term "self-reflexive," and how it relates to their chosen medium. Jacob Aaron Schroeder, for example, examines how food and sexuality impact identity through drawings, paintings, and photography. Hanan Rddad's drawings and paintings explore identity through the perspective of her own cultural heritage. Meanwhile, Ashley Seiwert creates abstract, large-scale paintings of objects. Hilary Greenstein's paintings explore themes of memory and loss. The show will also include sculptural pieces/furniture designs from Kassandra Huynh, and intricate drawings from Jeff Tuura. The opening reception is from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, April 27. (Pictured: Artwork by Jacob Aaron Schroeder)
