The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art at Georgia Southern University presents the 2015 Spring Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) Thesis Exhibition featuring Claudia Furlow, Michael Lesh, Ruth Patel and Lindsey Sullivan, from March 2 – March 27 on campus in the University and Contemporary Gallery of the Center for Art & Theatre. The exhibition includes an artist reception on Friday, March 6th, at 5 p.m. in the gallery. The events are free, and the public is welcome.

The Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition provides graduate students an opportunity to exhibit a representative sample of the MFA candidate’s best thesis work during their studies within the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art. The shows are installed in the Contemporary and University Galleries. The MFA Thesis Exhibition features a sample of work from all three MFA programs: Graphic Design, 3D Studio Art and 2D Studio Art. Claudia Furlow’s thesis exhibition Intimate Summation includes oil paintings that are an analogy for life/death and attraction/repulsion. Michael Lesh’s metal, wood, and mixed media sculpture’s for his exhibition, Aggro Duality, are inspired by skateboarding and custom- automobile cultures. Ruth Patel’s exhibition Confabulation is a collection of playful mixed media sculptures examining the layering and instability of memory. The Project Shop is an exhibition of Graphic Design work by Lindsey Sullivan featuring a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) brand designed to promote a value-creating activity that impacts the lives and personal development for those who participate.

“The four artists and designers have created interesting and challenging bodies of work,” said Gallery Director Anthony Faris, “The variety of media and examination of subject matter is incrediabily engaging. I would like to invite our student body, faculty and community to the opening on March 6th to meet and discuss the artwork with the artists.”

For more information on events and exhibitions or media inquiries, please contact Anthony Faris, Gallery Director: (912) 478-2788 or jfaris@georgiasouthern.edu.
