2014 MFA Thesis Exhibitions

January 26, 2014 - February 14, 2014
Mānoa Campus, Art Building, University of Hawai'i Art Gallery

For the first time in more than three decades, MFA candidates from the Department of Art and Art History, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, concurrently present their thesis works at the University of Hawai‘i Art Gallery. These exciting thesis exhibitions are part of a demanding course of study, production, and review required by the MFA program which focuses on a comprehensive and diverse curriculum for the graduate study of the visual arts and Asian and Pacific art history. MFA candidates present new and engaging thesis works that demonstrate their caliber of ideas, skills, awareness of the global context within which art is created and circulated, and critically engaged artistic practice. Each artist’s work is installed in a separate section of the gallery. The artists, their areas of specialization, and titles of their thesis exhibitions are:

Kerri L. Buxton (ceramics), "Locus of Presence"

Abi Good (sculpture) "Idle Dilemma"

Kyle Jablonski (printmaking), "I realized I agreed with what she told me"

Jen Thario (sculpture), "Cover the Spread"
