2014 Summer MFA Exhibition


2014 Summer MFA Exhibition
June 9 – August 25, 2014
The Gallery at UTA

The Seventh Annual Summer MFA Exhibition presents the artwork of a diverse group of 21 candidates from UT Arlington’s Graduate Degree Program. The students, at varying stages of the program - from first year, to those who have recently completed the program and have already earned their MFA degree - display a broad range of contemporary art-making practice in terms of concept, media and scale.

The Department of Art & Art History’s MFA Program is organized into four areas: Studio-Intermedia, Visual Communication, Film/Video and Glass and the works in this exhibition reveal the artists’ conceptual investigations of a variety of issues as they realize their visions in these respective mediums.

This year’s exhibition was selected by three jurors who are well-known and respected in their fields: Katrina Moorhead chose the studio-intermedia and glass works, Steven Holland, the Visual Communication pieces and Julia Dyer, the film/video selections on view. After visiting each MFA candidate’s studio and reviewing all the works that had been completed or were currently in progress, the jurors were faced with the daunting task of selecting one or two pieces they felt demonstrated the students’ best accomplishments. Their thoughtful choices reflect the depth and diversity of both the program and the student artists who generously share their intellectual and creative explorations.
