The Sonoma State University Art Gallery presents the 2016 BFA exhibition, featuring work from students graduating this year with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. The exhibition runs April 28 through May 21 with a free reception held at the University Art Gallery on Thursday, April 28, 5-7 p.m.
BFA Exhibition 2016 features the work of 10 students: Diana Baciocco (photography); Victoria Bevington (painting); Ashleigh Hayflich (printmaking); Briona Hendren (sculpture); Lauren Karr (printmaking); Kate Lapp (sculpture); Jessica Levey (sculpture); Kristelle Pliez (printmaking); Dane Singh (printmaking); and Faye Wheeler (painting).
The BFA Exhibition signifies the culmination of several years of work by students receiving the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, a 132-unit program requiring 70 units of rigorous course work in studio art, theory, and art history. The BFA affords time for concentrated study within a specific emphasis, all of which are represented in this exhibition: painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and works on paper.
Entrance into the BFA program is competitive and consists of only 10 percent of studio undergraduates. A BFA is often considered the degree of choice for students wishing to pursue graduate or professional studies. It enhances artists' opportunities to perform at a higher level and fulfills the need for additional artistic growth in an intensive studio environment. The BFA program regularly brings together students and instructors from all areas of demanding interdisciplinary critiques.
