ARLINGTON-The Gallery at The University of Texas Arlington is pleased to present the Master of Fine Arts Exhibition. The Master of Fine Arts is a professional graduate degree in the practice of art - unique in that it is the artist's terminal academic degree. The MFA in the Art + Art History department offers students a broad range of study and exploration within the areas of Intermedia, Film and Video, Glass and Visual Communication. As a requirement for completion of the degree, candidates are required to present a culminating exhibition demonstrating excellence in their chosen field. The Spring 2014 exhibition features eight artists - Ryan Britton, Gladys Chow, Jackson Echols, Elizabeth English, Jean M. Fernandes, Neal Paustian, Alison Starr, Sydney Webb -- showcasing their work in film/video, visual communication and studio intermedia art.
Nancy Palmeri, MFA Director states, “The originality of the MFA thesis exhibitions resides between the dynamic intersection of object and image and the equilibrium of well-directed theoretical structure. Following no formula, the work by all of the MFA students expresses the power of interplay between media. Their works are ironic, playful, striking, engaging, composed, tense, subversive, and beautiful. They suggest a visual account of each artist's ongoing transformation and individual studio practice. Their art reveals the scope and diversity of the artists within the MFA program at UTA, who are superbly balanced between the complex hemispheres of traditional and media-based art.”
The exhibit and all events are free and open to the public.
