CSUSB MFA Candidates to Discuss Work
San Bernardino, Ca. – The 2017 graduating CSUSB Master of Fine Arts students will discuss their body of work as well as their culminating Master’s Project Exhibitions at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art’s annual “MFA Art Talk” on Thursday, May 25, from 3-5 p.m.
The talk will take place in the museum’s main gallery. An opening reception for Ibel Sinohuiz’s MFA project exhibition will directly follow the talk, from 5-7 p.m.
Tanner McGuire, Nicole Stahl and Ibel Sinohuiz make up the fourth class of MFA students to present Master’s project exhibitions and the CSUSB Department of Art is currently in its sixth year of offering a three-year Master of Fine Art in Studio Art degree.
Tanner McGuire’s MFA project exhibition “Domestic Disturbance” features his current body of work, which explores domesticity, the role reversal happening in the family dynamics, the banality of home life, and the common escapism that occurs in parents.
Nicole Stahl’s MFA project exhibition “Prevail: In the Moment …” features cast glass and mixed media artworks that look back on pivotal memories, weaving a tale of resilience and healing, while looking positively to the future.
Ibel Sinohuiz’s MFA project exhibition, which went on display on May 18 and will run through May 31, features her most recent body of work that explores a personal mythology of her persona, “Baby Lamb,” inspired by her aspirations of becoming a drummer.
