Hunter College
Courtesy of the Hunter College spring 2015 MFA thesis class.

The thesis work of students receiving graduate degrees from Hunter College’s MFA program will be presented as part of Hunter College’s spring 2015 MFA thesis exhibition at the 205 Hudson Street Gallery. This exhibition will include work of graduate students in Combined Media, Painting, Works on Paper, Photography and Sculpture. The work selected represents the culmination of each student’s unique experience in Hunter College’s prestigious and competitive MFA program.

Join us for part one of the Hunter College MFA thesis exhibition opening Thursday, April 23, 6–8pm. The exhibition will feature works by 12 graduating artists: Kate Elliot, Noah Furman, Sophie Grant, Ofra Lapid, Andrés Laracuente, Simone Meltesen, Sara Murphy, Margo Ovcharenko, Rufus Tureen, George Weinberg, Jenna Westra and Elizabeth Williams.

The Hunter College MFA in Studio Art is a three-year program designed to offer broad opportunities for artists to develop their work and an ongoing studio practice in an environment that encourages experimentation, production, and critical dialogue. MFA students work with Hunter’s exceptional full-time faculty both individually in tutorials and in small seminars focusing on student work and contemporary practice, as well as in classes in the theory, criticism and history of art. In addition, many artists, curators, critics, and historians are invited to meet with students.

Hunter’s new MFA facility at the corner of Hudson and Canal in Tribeca in Manhattan offers students and faculty exceptional access to intellectual, cultural, and creative resources. Our presence in the middle of New York’s art world is crucial to our educational goal: the development of professional artists capable of continued growth once they leave the relatively structured graduate school environment. Studio space is available for all matriculated graduate students in the building at 205 Hudson Street, and students are required to maintain a studio and work in the building throughout their residency. Facilities include a woodshop, a metal shop, clay studio, printmaking studio, computer lab, audio and video editing facilities, black-and-white and color photo darkrooms, a flexible performance space, and a 5,000-square-foot gallery, which houses the MFA thesis shows each semester in addition to exhibitions curated by Hunter College curatorial staff and faculty.


Programming for the Hunter College spring 2015 MFA thesis exhibitions is made possible by a grant from PADA, the Private Art Dealers Association.
