California State University, Northridge’s Art Galleries presents its fourth annual “2013 Thesis Exhibition Master of Fine Arts/Master of Arts” now through June 1.
The exhibition showcases the work of 16 graduate students earning a master’s degree in either art or fine arts. The works featured include sculpture, painting, photography, digital video, ceramics, and illustration. The annual show is a culmination of intensive study and experimentation in fulfillment of the thesis requirements for both degree programs.
“This is the student’s final buildup to their degree,” said Jim Sweeters, director of the Art Galleries. “It’s a big event for them and to use because we get to see how our program is doing.”
In conjunction with the exhibit, both graduating and matriculating students will have open studios where visitors can engage in a deeper conversation of the concepts and processes behind their work in progress.
“It’s great for our students to see everything in its final form and realize that they were capable of producing these art pieces,” Sweeters said.
The exhibition is housed in the Art Galleries of the Art & Design Center and is open Monday through Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information regarding the exhibition, visit the Art Galleries website.
