About the Exhibition
Featuring eight artists about to complete their Master of Fine Arts degree the exhibition includes Katayoun Amjadi, Adam Kirk, Nina O’Leary, Anna Orbovich, Sarah Sampedro, Emily Swanberg, Anna Van Voorhis, and Asia Ward. Influenced by the visual language of screens and the role of metaphor in images, Kirk’s often surreal paintings invite the viewer to make meaning rather than prescribing answers. In her mixed media representations of quotidian cultural symbols, Amjadi combines a pictorial heritage of the past with the language of contemporary art. Exploring themes of identity and anxiety through photography, O’Leary represents the indigenous resilience of her family through images of true contentment. Orbovich’s desire to explore the wildness of earth and harness its materials—iron, rust, salt—results in images and objects that examine our complicated relationship with the environment. Using indoor cyanotype exposures on paper, Van Voorhis documents the light moving across the everyday objects of her kitchen and assembles those prints into tactile sculptures. Sampedro’s use of objects and photography investigates the space between people and how individuals and groups hold, use, and transfer power. In her refabrication of materials, Swanberg performs the intimacy of building labor and frustrates systematic construction processes. Acknowledging that plastics have their own agency, Ward’s sculptural installation questions how we coexist with these materials and how they continuously shape our world.

Outstanding candidates are reviewed by a panel of art faculty from a variety of media areas. Acceptance is based on the quality of the artwork submitted and the students potential for artistic development. As the culmination of their study, students present their work in a public exhibition at the Regis Center for Art. Nationally recognized, our program offers degrees and specialties in four main fields: painting, drawing, and printmaking, sculpture and ceramics, photography and moving images, and interdisciplinary art and social practice.
