Material and Media Exploration
Work by MCAD Foundation Studies Students
March 4-30, 2022
Opening Reception – Monday, November 7th from 5pm to 8pm
(light food and drinks provided)
For several years in the recent past, we have been pleased and honored to host an MCAD Foundations Drawing show in our gallery. Covid-19 introduced a hiatus to that gallery practice a couple of years ago. Now, we are happy to resume that series of shows, this time featuring the work of all the genres addressed in the Foundations Program. Expect to see not only the more traditional 2D paintings and drawings, but also 3D work on pedestals and medias pieces on screens placed around the gallery. Another important aspect to note, all MCAD students take the Foundations classes, regardless of their intended area of interest or focus.
One of the established goals of the Foundation Program at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), is to experiment with concepts, materials and techniques, and to build skill-sets in a variety of making processes. Most importantly, the program encourages students to embrace risk-taking as an essential element of the creative process. This exhibition is a celebration of a selection of student work produced in the first semester (fall 2021) of the Foundation Studies Program at MCAD. Works produced range from 2D to 3D to 4D, with various media and techniques, all showing the versatility, creativity, and tenacity of the students as a whole.
[Though restrictions, mandates and advisories are slowly being relaxed, Covid-19 is still with us, and we request mask be worn for all gallery visits.]
