Prichard Art Gallery Exhibit Features Work From UI MFA Students
April 18, 2017
The Prichard Art Gallery will feature work from University of Idaho Master of Fine Arts degree candidates in the MFA Exhibit “Unmasked Possibilities.” The exhibit opens Friday, April 21, and runs through Saturday, May 26. An opening reception will be held from 5-7:30 p.m., Friday at the gallery.
This exhibit includes work from four graduating master’s students from the College of Art and Architecture, each with unique art styles, including printmaking, mixed media installation, painting and performance art.
“This exhibit is the culmination of three years of dedicated study. It is a focused expression of the growth that these artists have attained while working and living in this community,” said Roger Rowley, director of the Prichard Art Gallery.
Artists showcasing their work at the exhibit include:
Moscow artist David Roon’s mixed media work explores evolution, questions of gender and alterity and anthropogenic ecological threats through the use of mythology.
Lindsay Mammone uses the body as a medium as she investigates societal vs. individual perceptions of female identity from a spiritual, emotional and mental perspective. Mammone considers the role of performance art in engaging viewers and how—if at all being a female might shift these conversations.
Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Reinaldo Gil is a Latin-American printmaker whose work is informed by stories he has collected from casual encounters around the world. Gil studies the common aspect of cultural identity and iconography of so-called “third-world countries" and the universal idea of home and its influence on individual personalities.
James Mammone’s paintings express his attempts to hone and master the essence of his creative spark.
The Prichard Art Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. The gallery is closed Monday. The gallery, an outreach facility of the University of Idaho College of Art and Architecture, is located at 414/416 S. Main St. on the corner of Fifth Street and Main Street in downtown Moscow. Admission is free. Additional Information is available at www.prichardart.org.
