Orange 5 Exhibition Features work on UTK MFA Students in New York City


Graduate Students in MFA Studio Art program from the University of Tennessee will present their work at UNIX Gallery during the College Art Association to be held in New York, New York. The exhibition “ORANGE5,” is the fifth year in a row that work by current UT graduate students has been presented during this national arts conference.

The exhibition will take place February 14-18, 2017 at UNIX Gallery, 532 West 24th Street, New York, NY, 10011. The gallery is open daily from 10:00am-6:00pm and a public reception will take place on Thursday February 16th from 6:00-9:00pm.

“ORANGE5” will include works in all visual arts media by 17 current students from five concentration areas in the MFA UT program: Printmaking, Sculpture, Time Based Arts, Ceramics and Painting/Drawing. Included are MaryAnne Carey, Cassidy Frye, Amy LeFever, Elysia Mann, Alex McKenzie, Erica Mendoza, Austin Pratt, Jing Qin, Corinna Ray, Joshua Shorey, Lila Shull, Christopher Spurgin, Christian Vargas, Anna Wehrwein, Johanna Winters and a collaborative project by Jessica Gatlin and Abigail Lucien.

The experience of showing work in a public gallery 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.
