EXHIBITION:  April 2 – May 4, 2019
RECEPTION:  Friday, April 12, 6:00-8:00 pm

ABOUT | This annual showcase is the culmination of two or more years work by the Master of Fine Arts graduate candidates. With its wide range of art-making approaches, this thesis exhibition provides a stimulating experience for faculty, students and museum visitors. This year’s MFA candidates are Bridgette Costa, Megan Culbertson, Diana Norely Fernandez Ortiz, Brett McElmurry, Ayanna Z. Nayo, Dustin M. Regul, and June T. Sanders.

Traveling from many places to join the cohort at WSU, these student-artists have engaged in an intense two-year interdisciplinary studio program. They met regularly with faculty members for group and individual critiques. Visiting artists and scholars provided diverse one-on-one insight into their creative work. Each artist sharpened their confidence, convictions, and skills. Their MFA Thesis Exhibition is a focused conclusion, yet it also marks an exciting transition toward their professional careers.

Funding has been provided by the Samuel H. & Patricia W. Smith Arts Endowment Fund, and the Members of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU.

LOCATION | The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU is located in the Crimson Cube (on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium and the CUB) on the WSU Pullman campus. The hours of our six galleries are Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday. For more information please contact the museum at 509-335-1910.
