Diverse Paths: Mid-Atlantic MFA Graduate Student Work opens April 9
UD@Crane presents Diverse Paths: Mid-Atlantic MFA Graduate Student Work an exhibition that features the work of regional graduate students.
The exhibition opens Thursday, April 9, 2009 and concludes on Thursday, May 3, 2009.
Diverse Paths… is the result of a productive collaboration between University of Delaware studio art and art history graduate students. Students from both departments worked together to organize, curate, and install the exhibition in an interdisciplinary cooperative effort. The exhibition showcases the works of current MFA students from Penn State University, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Rutgers University, Tyler School of Art- Temple University, The University of the Arts, and University of Pennsylvania.
Themes explored address the tension between the interior, subjective dimension and the exterior, larger world. While some works are executed with traditional artist’s materials, others incorporate found objects and installation. The techniques and materials employed engage issues of identity and the desire for communication and interactivity.
Featured artists include: Mike Treffehn, Marie Rim, Erin M. Riley, Caitlin Magner, Joseph Lozano, Chris Lawrence, Erica Harney, Caroline Gilpin, Katie Dillon, Paul DeMuro, and Jessica Bottalico.
The curators are Jim Zeske, Katsi Ortiz, Jennifer Jones O’Neil, Shushana Muldowney, Claudia Torres Guillemard, Molly Fletcher, Kenny Delio, Meghan Read Constantinou, Cody Bloom, and LaTanya S. Autry. Jennifer Jones O’Neil is the director of this exhibition.
UD@Crane is a two-story, 3,000 square foot space, which presents all practices of visual art, music, and literary and performing arts. UD’s establishment of a satellite arts campus at the Crane enhances regional visibility of our visual and performing arts departments..
