About the Teenage Archetype Carddeck
The Teenage Archetype Card Deck is designed to evoke conversation
and interpretation in a classroom or therapeutic setting with
archetype posters encouraging archetypal identification.
The deck came into existence after a tragic shooting by a 20 year old.
Hereth's reaction to the limited vocabulary expressed in
the shooter's last texts messages, "loser, burden and famous"
inspired her and her 100 art students to create and illustrate the deck;
100% of the profits going to support teen causes.

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic:
The 2019-2020 Juried Student Art Exhibition
has been replaced with an Online Virtual Art Exhibition.
We at the Komechak Art Gallery recognize the losses, limitations, and obstacles
that our students at Benedictine University have had to face in fulfilling their
requirements to complete their coursework and their artwork.
One of the goals of higher education should always be to prepare
our students for the future and how to navigate strange and difficult times.
The foundation of that instruction should be built on flexibility.
We are proud of what our students have been able to accomplish in the face of adversity.
We are proud of what our students have been able to achieve in the face of hardship.
We are proud of how our students have faced these challenges and are persevering.
We proud to be able to show the artist how to succeed using creativity and imagination.
This virtual exhibition not only allows our students to be able share their work with
other students, faculty, and staff and the Benedictine University community,
it also allows the Komechak Art Gallery to show them the path of applying
that innovation, creativity and imagination in an effort to find solutions,
while allowing our students’ work to be viewed on a worldwide platform.
