The UMass Dartmouth 2017 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 in large-scale exhibition at the Star Store Campus in historic Downtown New Bedford. The opening reception is on Saturday, April 8, 3-5 pm and the artists talk on Thursday, April 13 at 7 pm (AHA! Night).
The creative work of 12 graduating students ranges from traditional media such as printmaking and painting to video, photography, book arts, mixed media work, sculptural objects as well as site-specific installation.
As for the previous three years, the MFA Thesis Exhibition's opening reception happens on the same day as the BFA Senior's Exhibition, taking place up the street at the New Bedford Art Museum/ArtWorks!. Having both shows within walking distance of each other amplifies the celebratory energy generated through artistic expression for the students, visitors, UMass Dartmouth, as well as for the entire community.
Selections from this exhibition will be shown at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston from May 31 through July 2, 2017, with an opening reception on Friday, June 2, 6:00 - 8:30 pm.
University Art Gallery, College of Visual and Performing Arts, UMass Dartmouth, 715 Purchase Street, New Bedford, MA 02740
Open daily from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm and until 9:00 pm during AHA! Nights (every second Thursday each month) and on May 13. Free admission.
