The exhibit will be on display through Sept. 21.

In addition to her art, Chesser has also participated in mission trips that served communities across the nation in areas such as New Orleans and Logan, West Virginia, according to the release. She built handicap ramps, painted houses and led youth clubs. Chesser went on her first international mission trip last year in Managua, Nicaragua, and according to the release, took the inspiration for her AP Studio Concentration from her trip to Gutierrez Norte, a village in Nicaragua.

Chesser will next head to the Adirondack Mountains to serve a small community alongside her youth group, according to the release. She will attend Liberty University with a major in youth ministry and a minor in global studies this fall.

Chesser hopes to become a youth pastor working with nonprofit organizations to further her mission work, according to the release.
