I will be finally graduating this May with my Masters of Fine Arts. As part of the MFA thesis process, we are asked to put on an exhibition of our work at Fontbonne’s campus art gallery. A group of us decided to take our thesis work one step further and look for a space to accomodate a larger body of work. Thus, SYNTHESIS was born. In looking for a space, we decided to take on something outside of the normal gallery settings. We looked to contacts and through a generous donation, we secured a portion of the Mark Lemp Footwear as an alternative venue site for our show!
Synthesis is a collection of work from eleven Fontbonne MA/MFA artists including myself. Open to the public, the reception will take place on Friday, May 14th from 7:00PM until 10:00PM. Refreshments will be served. For additional information, as well as information on the progress of SYNTHESIS, go to our blog address at: www.fbuspring2010grads.wordpress.com
As a side note (and a connection for this blog), my artwork does incorporate airplanes. : )
In addition to SYNTHESIS: The Exhibition, there will also be an on-campus exhibition of Fontbonne graduate work. I invite everyone to Fontbonne University’s Fine Arts Building Gallery on Wednesday, May 5th from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM. Refreshments will be served and you will be able to view works that will not be on display at the SYNTHESIS exhibition.
One last noteworthy piece of news. I have been invited to participate in a roundtable discussion on architecture, preservation, and urbanism. The discussion will feature a number of local artists and organizers and will be available for streaming or podcast. I will post more information about this wonderful feature as soon as I have more details. The discussion will be regarding my work for 56 Houses Left, and I will discuss the future of the book 56 Houses Left as well as the blog.
Thank you all!
