Livestreamed Artist’s Talk By MFA
Graduate Candidate Stephanie Broussard

Stream the program live on YouTube
Free and open to the public, no registration necessary.
This livestreamed talk accompanies the 2021 Master of Fine Arts Thesis exhibition

Join MFA graduate candidate Stephanie Broussard virtually as she takes the audience on a tour of her thesis exhibition in the museum’s Pavilion gallery. Traveling from many places to join the cohort at WSU, Broussard engaged in an intense two-year interdisciplinary studio program and met regularly with faculty members for group and individual critiques. Visiting artists and scholars provided diverse one-on-one insight into her creative work while the artist sharpened her confidence, convictions, and skills.

Stephanie Broussard’s work interprets and plays with perceptions of space utilizing the language of paint. Through a series of contrasting themes, she has constructed narrative paintings revolving around distance & closeness; interior & exterior; cityscape & landscape; spiritual & physical; presence & absence.

After the presentation, Stephanie will be joined by her MFA peers for a panel discussion regarding her work. The remainder of Broussard’s MFA cohort, who also entered the program of graduate study in Fine Arts in 2019, have elected to stay a third year due to complications of COVID-19. Broussard’s fellow MFAs have been an important part of her graduate experience, and the panel discussion will give this special group time to reflect on and celebrate Broussard’s effort and accomplishment.

Note: Stephanie’s livestreamed artist talk is fully virtual.

Organized by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU. Funding for this exhibition is provided by the Samuel H. and Patricia W. Smith Endowment and members of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU.

A selection of her poetry comics, collectively titled In Between, was published by Pleiades Press in 2017. Her book Sea was recognized by Cartoonists NW as 2015’s “best comic book,” and her comics art has been exhibited in galleries across the country.

She is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Puget Sound, serves on the board for the arts organization Short Run Seattle as well as the steering committee for Graphic Medicine, and is a teaching artist with the Henry Art Gallery.

CHRIS WATTS | 2016 Fine Arts Faculty Focus Exhibition

The Museum of Art/WSU announces a retrospective journey in a Fine Arts Faculty Focus Exhibition by artist Chris Watts, Aug. 22– Sept. 17. An opening reception will be held 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, in the Museum of Art gallery with a talk given by the artist at 7 p.m.  Admission to the museum is free.

The Museum of Art has a long-standing tradition of presenting work by department of Fine Arts faculty members. Since 2004, these exhibits have alternated large group shows with a biennial exhibit showcasing a recently retired faculty member. This year the museum presents a retrospective exhibit of Chris Watts’ work, who retired in 2015, after 27 years of teaching drawing and painting at WSU.

ABOUT | Citing influences as diverse as Bronze Age monuments, spirals and mazes, Pythagoras, counting processes, scientific structures, bell ringing, Theosophy, and the geometric tradition in art; Chris Watts’  work represents a long-term inquiry into systems of order, patterning, and to a certain degree, spiritual or esoteric ideas. His investigation of the underlying structures of the world around us—expressed through drawings, paintings and constructions—connects Watts to a long lineage of peoples who have organized worldviews through pattern and abstract form.

LOCATION | The Museum of Art is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. Gallery hours are Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays and closed on Sundays. For more information please contact the museum at 509-335-1910.

SPECIAL THANKS | This exhibit is funded by the Members of the Museum of Art and the Samuel H. and Patricia W. Smith Arts Endowment.
