The Master of Fine Arts of 2015 candidates invite you to encounter a diverse presentation of craft and creation.

These artists create and perform with awareness pertaining to the construction of identities, societies, and systems. While distilling each artist’s expression through rigorous inquiry, this exhibition is unified by a critical and intentional attitude toward making and unmaking.

Heavy Light is the dichotomous residue of the destruction in creation, the paradox, of this inquiry into making and making anew.

Words used to describe their exhibition are projection, painting, sculpture, body parts, dreams, femini-mischief, realm, nostalgic, scope, imposing, implicate, un-making, gesture, verisimilitude, and anticipatory threshold.

Exhibiting artists are: Maria Davidoff, Lucas Haley, Evan Isoline, Candace Jahn, Marisa Lee, Kelly McGovern, Min Jung, Bertrand Morin, Annie Oldenburg, Nick Patton, Katie Piatt, Micah Schmelzer, and Veronica V. R. Reeves.
