ALBANY, NY--- The University Art Museum is pleased
to announce the opening of its most recent exhibition featuring
the work of the University at Albany Fall 2004 Master of Fine
Arts (MFA) candidates: Torrance E. Fish, Laura K. Kiefer,
Ingrid Ludt, Nicholas Pella, and Jay Tiernan .
The artists featured in this exhibition have just completed
the University at Albany Art Department 's three-year, 60 credit-hour
program of intensive training and study in traditional and contemporary
fine art practices. At the end of their MFA studies, candidates
are required to exhibit a cohesive body of their work. This work
forms the core of the MFA candidates' visual thesis and demonstrates
the vigor and expertise with which these emerging artists explore
their respective choice of mediums.
The University Art Museum provides MFA candidates with the opportunity
to exhibit their work in a professional museum setting. At the
same time the museum offers area viewers a unique opportunity
to see how today's emerging artists are addressing contemporary
issues in the visual arts. The Master of Fine Arts Thesis
Exhibition is an important milestone for these artists
and marks their debut into the larger art world.
