The UMass Dartmouth 2013 MFA Thesis Exhibition is a much anticipated and celebrated annual event showcasing the artwork of graduating students from the College of Visual and Performing Arts. This show presents a selection of work from 17 MFA degree candidates and opens during First Friday in Boston's SoWa district's Soprafina Gallery on June 7, 2013.

The exhibition presents the culmination of students' two to three years of creative research in a variety of visual arts disciplines while celebrating their attainment of a Master of Fine Arts degree.

On display is a diverse array of media, from traditional to contemporary with everything from painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, to sculpture and jewelry - all used in ways that are serious, questioning, and at times, playful. A wide variety of materials have been utilized to express not only artistic concerns, but issues of identity, fragility, balance, and futility such as textiles, wood, clay, carved bones, and interactive digital books.

The exhibiting artists are: Tracy Anna Bader, Susan Bauer, Ryan Blackwell, Zac Cheng, Kelly Jean Conroy, Brian DiNicola, Allison Elia, Shanth S. Enjeti, Robert L. Greene, Tyler James Hanatow, Charity May Henderson, Edmund J. Merricle II, Lindsay Pauline Miś, Sam Pettengill, Laura Ryan, Brittany Savolainen, Leni Stoeva

The exhibition is open daily Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 am to 5:30 pm or by appointment.

UMass Dartmouth, SMU and Swain School of Design alumni are invited to attend an alumni-only opening reception sponsored by the UMass Dartmouth Alumni Association. Free, advance registration requested online at http://alumni.umassd.edu/mfa or by calling Nancy Tooley at 508.999.8031.
