This year’s candidates for Masters of Art (Studio Art) are diverse. They include traditional and abstract painters, video artists, sculptors and installation artists.
The candidates are Phillip Altstatt, Jeff Carter, Afsaneh Dehbozorgi, Jeff Mayry, Roberta Rousos and Brad Starkey-Owens, whose work will be at the Library Gallery Annex. M.A. candidate Minh Tran has an art installation, “Samsāra: Vessels of Life and Death,” at the Witt Gallery.
The Senior Show is planned and curated by students from the senior seminar of art. It features pieces in various media and is an opportunity to celebrate the students’ achievements as they move on to pursue careers in their chosen fields.
