Verbal/Visual 2016: MFA Exhibit

George Mason University - Fri, 04/29/2016 - 09:21

The annual Verbal/Visual exhibit, featuring art and research by Mason’s MFA candidates, is now on display in Fenwick Gallery. Creative practice is driven by input or research, even though it is defined by the resulting output or product. The combination of these three aspects prompts new methods of creating, and provides alternate routes to acquire knowledge and insight.  Verbal/Visual 2016 presents all elements of the creative process as one. Research and artwork, conducted and created by MFA candidates Ben Ashworth, Sarah Zuckerman Dolan, Sarah Irvin and Patrick Sargeant, show these corresponding parts of a whole. The students will graduate from Mason’s School of Art in May 2016.

For more information about Fenwick Gallery, please contact Jenna Rinalducci, jrinaldu @ gmu.edu.
