Summer MFA Exhibit

I don’t know what excites me more, the fact that there is an exhibit up on campus to go check out, or that this show is an MFA exhibition featuring graphic designers and illustrators!

The opening reception for this show was actually this past Saturday, July 16th, but these pieces were on display at the Mahady Gallery in the Visual Arts Shield Center through Jul 21, 2016.

Graphic Designers: Kelsey Phillips, Leslie Ward, Victoria Wright

Illustrators: Meg Auchenbach, Brenda Bodily, Vince Bonavoglia, Christopher Phllips

In this exhibit, Brenda Bodily’s work contains a ton of detail which is refreshing, and Christopher S. Phillips’ work has a dark undertone to his works that creates a dark mood, which I am always a fan of. Each artist has their own style and theme which is apparent throughout their works of art, and totally different from the rest.

If you are in the area, be sure to check this show out, for it is sure to catch your interest on all sorts of levels!

UNDERGRADUATE ILLUSTRATION: Illustrators have a need to be heard and an artistic yearning to tell narrative and visual ‘stories’ in a personal and unique way. Illustrators are the highest trained and hardest working artists in the market today. They solve two clear problems; listening to and completing specific client’s parameters and fulfilling the challenge of having their own personal method of working and creative ideas into print. All on deadline. LEARN MORE

UNDERGRADUATE GRAPHIC DESIGN: Marywood’s graphic design program incorporates the study of design and type, conceptual development, design history, research, studio technique, and strategies for problem-solving. Class critiques and discussions are emphasized. Students will explore web design, interactive design, publication design, package design, corporate identity, typography and self promotion. During the junior and senior years, students will apply their knowledge and skills through internships and real design projects. The goal is to provide each student with the environment and support in which to develop a professional visual portfolio. LEARN MORE
