MFA Students to Showcase Work in NYC

Orange_3_postcard
The University of Tennessee MFA students return to NYC to show their best work.
 
Please join us on Thursday night, February 12th from 6—9PM at the UNIX Gallery (http://www.unixgallery.com) at 532 W 24th street, for a reception and alumni reunion celebrating Orange3. Orange3 runs from February 10-14,
10 a.m. – 6 p.m. This annual exhibition, now in its 3rd year, features the work of 13 graduate students currently in pursuit of their MFA at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The inaugural Orange Exhibition opened in February 2013
at White Box in NYC, and Orange2 opened in Chicago last February at

Co-Prosperity Sphere.
 
The experience of showing work in a prominent gallery setting such as UNIX, is one of several experiences that help graduate students build their professional skills— a significant aspect of sustaining a successful professional practice as an artist or designer.
 
Featured in this exhibit is work from five concentration areas in the MFA UT program: Printmaking, Sculpture, Transmedia Design, Ceramics and Painting.
Artists whose work is included are:
