On Saturday, May 25th, the Henry’s Stroum Gallery will feature the work of 17 graduating UW School of Art Master of Fine Art and Master of Design students. The students have been in the galleries preparing their pieces for over a week, with the help of the Henry prep crew and in particular, Jim Rittimann, Henry Art Gallery head preparator and exhibition designer. Jim, a UW School of Art MFA himself, helped the students select which work to show in this culminating exhibition.

Presenting students are: Jared Bender, Phillip Carpenter, Carly Cummings, Lacy Draper, Mike Fretto, Kari Gaynor, Dakota Gearhart, Meg Hartwig, Margarita Iordache, Dave Kennedy, Stephanie Klausing, Josh Nelson, Adriel Rollins, Travis-David Smith, Melanie Wang, Marcus Watson, and Ryan Weatherly.

The School of Art will award diplomas in a private ceremony and reception on Friday evening, which will be followed by a public opening at 7 pm. Join us to celebrate the 2013 MFA+MDes thesis exhibition and to meet this new generation of artists!
