MFA Thesis 2022 LogoThe 2022 Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibitions celebrate the creative accomplishments of four emerging artists who are completing their studies in our graduate program. Their works will be available for viewing in the University Museum, Kipp Gallery, and Annex Gallery from March 26 through April 16, 2022, with a free public reception in all venues on Saturday, March 26, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.  

Representing a culmination of three years of intensive work, the pieces on display explore the interconnection between each medium’s tradition, contemporary practice, and personal vision.

Participating artists include Jonathan Grengs (Ceramics), Emmanuel Ntow (Sculpture), Justin Pope (Drawing / Printmaking), and Elizabeth Wheeler (Painting).

Recipients of the MFA have earned the terminal degree in their field and are now qualified to occupy the most prestigious professional positions in visual art.
