For San Diego State University School of Art and Design artists displaying their artwork at the public art galleries on the San Diego campus is a labor of love.

 

Scale, form, color, technique – artists consider each aspect carefully when exhibiting their work to the public. 

 

In October, the School of Art and Design galleries presents the Graduate Review Exhibition featuring artwork from first to third-year MFA candidates in a group show setting, allowing each artist to select work they feel best represents their practice. Artworks in the exhibition encompass the disciplines of painting, furniture design and woodworking, photography, ceramics, graphic design, sculpture, jewelry and metalwork, interior architecture, and multimedia. MFA students prepare and display their artwork and for many of them, it’s their first time presenting at a public exhibition.  

 

“A lot of your work is based on theory and critical analysis and research. A lot of us have work that you are trying to experiment [with] and get a better understanding of if it works in the gallery space, how you exhibit the work, how you want the viewer to engage the work” said Robyn North, a MFA student displaying work at the exhibition. “Scale, form, color… we’ve had a lot of conversations trying to figure this out.”
