WELCOME STUDENTS FROM WROCŁAW, POLAND
The UT School of Art welcomes Agnieszka Hoza and Izabela Kabza both of whom are graduate students in the MFA program in Wrocław, Poland to be resident-artists in the Printmaking Program in Knoxville. These printmakers, who arrive in Knoxville this week, will present an exhibition of their artwork at Gallery 1010 later this month.
For more than 15 years the Printmaking Program in the UT School of Art has had an affiliation with the Graphics Department at the E. Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, Poland, including an ongoing student exchange. The 2022 exchange, which had been postponed for two years due to COVID, allows two students from each program spend a month as Artists-in-Residence at the other institution.
Through this arrangement two UT graduate students spend four weeks in Wrocław each May and June, and two students come to Knoxville each September. The timing of the exchanges take place so that participating students do not miss any coursework during the regular academic calendar at their home university/academy.
In May, Muriel Condon, who had just completed her MFA degree, and second-year graduate student Noah Lagle travelled to Wrocław as part of the exchange. During their residency they worked in the academy studios, participating in classes, and presented an exhibition of their work.
In September Agnieszka Hoza and Izabela Kabza, both of whom are graduate students in the MFA program in Wrocław, will be resident-artists in the UT School of Art. They will present Micrographs/Planned Accidents, an exhibition of their work at Gallery 1010 (in the Emporium Building, 100 South Gay Street, Knoxville, TN) with a reception to be held on Friday, September 23, from 5-7 pm. The exhibition will also be on view on Saturday, September 24, from 10 am-1 pm.
