3:00 – 5:00 p.m. and 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.
The MFA students in the School of Fine Art and Music at the University of Guelph are pleased to welcome the public to their annual Open Studios, offering a rare inside look at the development of new work within the hothouse environment of an art program and a chance to chat with artists about their work in progress.
Open Studios 2016 features work by graduate candidates:
Hiba Abdallah, Steven Beckly, Amanda Boulos, Patrick Cruz, Peter Denton, Erika Dueck, Shannon Garden-Smith, John Haney, Simon M. Benedict, Paul MacIntyre, Kevin Murphy, Jean-Marc Perin, Larissa Tiggelers, Ambera Wellmann
The University of Guelph offers a two year Master of Fine Arts Degree that combines intensive studio concentration with seminars in theory and pedagogy. Exceptionally committed graduate faculty and limited student enrolment result in a community that is intensely involved in contemporary art and its discourse. A consistently excellent program of visiting artists, critics and curators extends this community.
MFA Open Studios is held in conjunction with the 10th Annual Dasha Shenkman Lecture in Contemporary Art with Fred Wilson on Wednesday March 23, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.
