Access the full press release.

The Katherine E. Nash Gallery at the University of Minnesota presents Hungry For After, an exhibition of seven artists about to complete their Master of Fine Arts degree in the Department of Art. Artists in the exhibition include Nicholas Bauch, Sayge Carroll, Brandon Chambers, Rini Keagy, Grant McFarland, Caitlin Skaalrud, and R.C. Tibbott.

With a background in cultural and historical geography, Bauch invites the viewer to commune with various landscapes through a range of interactive experiences. Guided by their ancestral knowledge, Carroll builds objects and environments that merge physical and virtual space, opening a doorway between multiple worlds. Driven by a desire to give form to the unacknowledged, Chambers creates sculptures and works on paper that honor the unknowable. Resisting hierarchical and linear structures, Keagy’s moving image practice equalizes subjective and archival material to engage with sites of historical and psychosocial trauma. McFarland’s hand-made utilitarian objects challenge notions of value from the perspective of the artist versus the consumer. Using comics as a medium for the dead, Skaalrud invites ghosts to tell their stories from beyond the grave. Tibbott combines clay, processes of repetition, and artifacts from his military service to investigate an object’s potential once it has withstood its intended use.

Mission & History

The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is a research laboratory for the practice and interpretation of the visual arts. We believe the visual arts have the capacity to interpret, critique, and expand on all of human experience. 

Professor Katherine "Katy" E. Nash (1910–1982), a faculty member of the Department of Art from 1961–1976, proposed that the Student Union create a university art gallery. Founded in 1979, the gallery moved to its current location in the Regis Center for Art in 2003. Learn more about the remarkable life and work of Professor Nash.
