March 27-April 25
Opening March 27 from 7-9.
Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of work by first-year graduate students from the University at Buffalo Visual Studies Program. This exhibition is especially unique because it is the first time in recent history that an MFA group show has been held at a gallery outside of the UB campus.
Featured Artists and Statements:
Jolene Beckman‘s work examines vanity and women’s identity through realist figural drawings and paintings. She incorporates reflection and repetition in order to reproduce portions of individual lives for closer consideration.
Kyle William Butler‘s current work deals with structure and uncertainty as symbolized in urban form.
Erika Colby‘s work addresses individual and social conflicts faced by a future “designer baby” generation pressured to surpass genetic potential and parental expectations.
Geoffrey Krawcyzk‘s work addresses life, death, taboo, transgression, sexuality, spirituality, conflict, compromise, with a sprinkling of the infinite essence of the sublime.
Amy Meza Luraschi‘s current work explores the notion of mental mapping and home as a psychological space or physical place.
Sally Morrison‘s current work deals with the body as decoration and ornamentation as explored through biological process, medical intervention and personal change.
Hyeyoung Shin work creates a movement of introspection and self-inquiry where the viewer becomes the subject of the piece.
Frederick Wright Jones‘ sculptural installations stem from an internal search for borders, origin, culture and identity.
This exhibition will be featured in the third floor galleries at the Market Arcade. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 9 am to 5 pm, and Saturday 12 pm to 4 pm. For directions and more information call 716-856-2717 or visit CEPA Gallery.
