    Present/Future: A Showcase of Emerging Artists

    Presented by at Concord Art Association

    June 21 - August 15, 2012


    Present/Future: A Showcase of Emerging Artists

    Concord Art Association is pleased to present Present/Future: A Showcase of Emerging Artists, June 21-August 15, 2012. The exhibit features the work of graduate students from Rhode Island School of Design Fine Arts Department (RISD) and Boston University Master of Fine Arts Program (BU).

    The work in the exhibit represents each student’s unique experience in the graduate programs at RISD and BU, which resulted in a body of work created to support their individual thesis. Students had several years to research, experiment, and develop their critical thinking, artistic skills and viewpoints, creating work that is fresh, robust and makes us look at materials and processes in new ways.
    Ilana Manolson, the show’s curator and Concord Art Board Member states, “We strive to present quality work by artists throughout their careers – from high school students to mature adults. In addition to our annual juried member shows and independently-curated exhibits that feature mid-career artists, we also present the work of students from our local high school and from own our classes offered at Concord Art. Present/Future adds a critical and inspiring component to our programming as it’s a reflection of contemporary work and critical thinking performed by graduating MFA students from two excellent art schools. We are pleased to host these artists and look forward to following their careers in the future."
    The Opening Reception for the exhibit is Thursday, June 21 from 6-8:00pm. The reception is free and open to the public.
