“The Norman and Oklahoma community needs to know what young artists are up to,” says Lindsey Allgood, current graduate student at the OU School of Art & Art History, “My peers produce dynamic, unique, thought-provoking art, that’s different than anything you’ll find in the art community here. This is a rare opportunity to see the M.F.A. graduates’ work altogether, as a collective body.”
The 2012 M.F.A. Exhibition at the University of Oklahoma School of Art & Art History will be on display from Friday, Sept. 14 through Friday, Sept. 28, in the Lightwell Gallery. A free, public reception will be held from 6-8 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 14. The exhibition will feature work by each of our thirteen current M.F.A. students.
“Many of our M.F.A. students spend much of their time working on projects at our new Visual Arts Research Annex. Events like this give our undergraduate students a chance to see what our graduate students are working on and also helps to unite our entire student body,” says Printmaking professor Curtis Jones.
The University of Oklahoma’s School of Art and Art History is located in the Fred Jones Art Center (FJC), 520 Parrington Oval, in the OU Arts District. The Lightwell Gallery is located on the second floor and is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and closed on holidays and weekends.
