Students show work.
Sixteen University of Oregon graduate students will present an eclectic mix of media and styles in "MFA/02," the annual master of fine arts group exhibition, which will open Friday at Oveissi & Co., 22 W. Seventh Ave.
Organized jointly each year by the UO Museum of Art and the School of Architecture and Allied Arts' Department of Art, the free exhibit will continue through June 22. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
The exhibition will include finished work, study models and drawings as a "view into the artistic process." Coinciding with Eugene's First Friday ArtWalk, Friday's opening will include a public reception for the artists from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
This year's MFA exhibit is being shown at off-campus galleries because the university's art museum is closed for a $12 million expansion and modernization project that will double its size. The museum is scheduled to reopen in fall 2003.
The MFA show will include ceramics by Michael Boonstra and Carrie Shields; fiber art by Annette Hepner and Robin Seloover; metalsmithing and jewelry by Maru Almeida and Nick Dong; painting by Kevin Bell, Michael Gambill, Mika Holtzinger and James Schauer; photography by Shelley Foster, Tera Gambill and Samantha Stengel-Goetz; sculpture by Mitch Mitchell; and visual design by Dale Gronso and Naomi Kasumi.
The exhibit is the culminating event - the equivalent of a master's thesis - for art students who are candidates for the master of fine arts degree, the most advanced UO degree for studio work in the fine arts.
After it closes in Eugene, the show will move to the Pacific Northwest College of Art, 1241 N.W. Johnson St., Portland. It will open there with a reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 3 and will run from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily through Aug. 17.
