MFA Thesis Exhibition 2021

The culminating experience for the School of Art and Design’s Master of Fine Arts in Art (MFA) candidates is the thesis exhibition. After three years of hard work, the exhibition represents the development of their artistic voice and skills through a cohesive body of work. This spring’s seven MFA candidates represent the areas of ceramics, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. Their work embodies diverse perspectives on the world and unique approaches to art-making that transcend disciplinary boundaries and beckon the viewer to expand their understanding of art and the human experience.

Our four MFA candidates were able to install their thesis exhibitions in the Wellington B. Gray Gallery on campus in March, and we are happy to share documentation of their thesis work through an online exhibition — MFA Thesis Exhibition 2021.

Participating artists include:

Pete Borsay, Printmaking
Kerry Yichen Guan, Metal Design
Noelle Gunn, Painting and Drawing
Nikki Purcell, Metal Design
