MOUNT VERNON — Mount Vernon Nazarene University will host “Ego” by artist Kevin Frances at Schnormeier Gallery, 221 S. Main St., through Nov. 17. A gallery talk will be held on Thursday, Oct. 19, at 6:30 p.m.

Frances is a multi-disciplinary artist based in New York City, New York. Frances lives and works as an artist in Boston, Massachusetts. He received a B.A. in Art Studio while attending the University of California in 2010, and his MFA in Printmaking while attending the Rhode Island School of Design in 2013. In 2012, Frances participated at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.

This exhibition unifies two complete series of his work — one as a character study of a fictional teenage boy, and the other as a young woman moving into her first apartment. Situated within two key developmental stages, “Ego” addresses both conscious and unconscious decision-making responsible for a person’s sense of identity. “Ego” is free and open to the public.
