The University at Albany Department of Art & Art History opens its 2020 MA Thesis Show Efflorescence on May 1st. Efflorescence – meaning “flowering out" in French – features paintings, sculpture, and photography by MA candidates Bob DiBono, Juliana Haliti, Tara Holmes, Raouf Khalil, Andrea Lawyer, Minling Lin, and H.C.Tiffany Lo. The exhibition is presented as an online catalogue until May 17th, 2020. It represents the culmination of one year of intensive study and studio art practice. Since March 23, the students have been working off campus, adapting basements, living rooms, offices, and garages into home studios.

JoAnne Carson, Professor and Graduate Director of the UAlbany Studio Art Program says: “At a time of profound difficulty in facing a worldwide pandemic, these seven graduating MA students inspire our confidence that they will enter this world with focus and clarity of purpose. They are a forceful group with great ambitions, a hunger for knowledge and fearlessness in cutting new pathways in the art world – and the world in general for that matter.”
