Works pictured by Ryan Goolsby, Lucia Simek, Jennifer Guest and Courtney Hamilton
TCU MFA Exhibition
January 18 – March 7, 2014
Opening Reception Saturday, January 18, 6 – 8 pm
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is pleased to present New Order, an exhibition of graduate painting, drawing, and sculpture from new and returning MFA candidates. Works by Tara Cook, Ryan Goolsby, Jennifer Guest, and Lucia Simek featured in the exhibition provide a glimpse of their thesis work as we look ahead to their upcoming solo exhibitions (which begin March 24), and work presented by four new first-year candidates Courtney Hamilton, Alyssa Hawkins, Fernando Johnson and Maxwell Morris bring a new voice to the conversation.
Certain currents of thought — ideas of construction and formation, artifice and posing, and nascent inklings of identity — trend throughout the work, describing, perhaps, connections that develop out of the artists’ natural proximity and understanding of one another in an MFA program, or perhaps they signal a wider set of concerns as expressed in art dialogues at this moment.
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is located at the corner of WBerry and Greene Ave, two blocks east of University Dr. Hours are Wednesday - Saturday, noon - 5 pm.
