The Department of Visual Arts and Art History announces the opening reception of "Confluence," featuring the works of graduating MFA candidates in the department. The exhibition will run from Friday, April 4 throughout the summer in the Schmidt Center Gallery, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, April 3 at 6 p.m. The opening reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
The exhibition will showcase works in sculpture, printmaking, painting and ceramics. The artists include Linda Behar, Misoo Filan, Raheleh T. Filsoofi, Stephen Futej, Isabel Gouveia and Kandy G. Lopez.
- Behar was born in Venezuela and combines her background as a civil engineer with her architecturally-influenced prints and mixed media work.
- Filan explores the theme of vulnerability by painting images that mix tales of her upbringing in Korea with the desire to escape to fantasy.
- Filsoofi experiments with a variety of mediums, but concentrates her work in ceramic arts, conveying ideas of displacement from her native county.
- Futej personifies his experience as a Masters student through ceramics, focusing on the psychological pressures of returning to academia.
- Gouveia addresses the destruction of the environment through photography and the manipulation of the CMYK printing process.
- Lopez is artistically attracted to urban environments and the visual depiction of contemporary survival.
