Master of Fine Arts in Visual Arts graduates to showcase their artwork in exhibition at The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley Galleries, January 7-12
Monday, December 17, 2012
The exhibition features painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation and more. The exhibition charts the many ways contemporary artists engage with the transforming landscape of the world today.
Seventeen graduates will display their artwork in two different locations: the Main Gallery at The Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, 700 Beacon Street, Boston; and at AIB’s University Hall Gallery, 1815 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge.
The January 2013 graduates, who represent the program’s seventeenth graduating class, are: Casey Arbor, Nina Ata, Seth Boggs, Mary Crenshaw, Noelle Fiori, Jennifer Harriman, Flannon Jackson, Rita Koehler, Ya La'ford, Julie Lindell, Jennifer Longworth, Mandy Mahaffey, Jenna Powell, Shawn Saumell, Kristin Selesnick, Leigh Yardley, and MollyYergens.
The Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Visual Arts is a low-residency program that attracts students from all over the country as well as internationally who want to earn a master's degree without relocating, giving up their day jobs, or taking classes online.
The residencies are intense – students spend ten days on campus each semester with fellow students and faculty advisors, who are working practitioners in the field. The students then return home to create their artwork, meet with their local mentors, and continue their dialogue with Faculty Advisors at The Art Institute of Boston.
“The interdisciplinary focus of the MFA program encourages the students to explore the integration of a variety of visual art media, while simultaneously encouraging the refinement of each artist’s individual vision,” says Judith Barry, director of the MFA program in Visual Arts.
Friday, January 11, from 8 to 9:30 p.m. at AIB’s University Hall Gallery, 1815 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge.
Artists: Casey Arbor, Seth Boggs, Noelle Fiori, Jennifer Harriman, Flannon Jackson, Rita Koehler, Kristin Selesnick, and Leigh Yardley
