Ariel Kleinberg and Fukuko Harris- November 15-21
The Student Gallery is organized and run by students, and gives them the opportunity to see their work outside the studio in a different, independent context while presenting it to their peers and the public. Shows can feature finished works or works-in-progress, and are framed, curated and hung by the students themselves.
Students are also responsible for publicizing the show, mailing invitations and hosting an opening reception. The work is discussed in a seminar held in the gallery, conducted by the exhibiting students.
Exhibitions are usually two-person shows, although group exhibitions from painting and sculpture ateliers may also be featured as part of the program.

Every week, a new student exhibition opens in the upstairs student gallery. These exhibitions usually feature a pair of students who curate, hang and put on the opening themselves. Past openings have featured bands, DJ’s, and elaborate food spreads. These openings are a time for the community to come together at the end of the week to view and discuss the work being produced in the studios.
This week Karin Malpeso and Lauren Jones displayed their work.
Ed Praybe, MFA 2012, visited last week to present to the community about his travels in Europe. Ed travelled throughout Europe after receiving the prestigious Hohenberg award, notably visiting Italy, The Netherlands, and Great Britain. Ed showed slides and spoke about the importance of seeing influential masterworks in person, such as Caravaggio’s St. Matthew cycle in Rome, Lorenzetti’s Allegory of Good and Bad Government, and landscapes by Turner and Constable. Ed showed slides of his sketchbook pages, careful investigations of the structural qualities of these important works. In conjunction with the presentation, Ed mounted an exhibition of oil paintings and framed drawings in the downstairs lobby and alcove; paintings that captured the spirit of suburbia as well as faithful drawings from his travels.
This week, the new Hohenberg entries are on display in the student gallery. Each student submits one piece, along with a statement, to the jury of faculty judges. See all of the works in the gallery above- and best of luck to the entrants.
Stop by to see the atmospheric and moody landscapes on canvas and paper by MFA Student Leah Raab.
Every Friday, a new exhibition of student work hangs on the walls of the Student Gallery 0n 8th Street. The extent of the opening and press involved is up to the student, but in the past we’ve hosted bands, brought in cases of wine, and home made food. If you’re interested in seeing student work, call ahead on Friday to see if there is an opening reception, and if the artist allows walk in guests.
View bold canvasses and works on paper by MFA II students Mariano Henestrosa and Takuya Yoshida. Mariano’s ink on paper works are brushy and loose, cut apart and put back together to create asymmetrical and powerful compositions. Tak’s paintings are compact and colorful, featuring vivid landscapes and architectural elements. On view this week-
Current large paintings as well as small works on paper by MFA I student Tristan Barlow are hanging in the student gallery. Maud Bryt, Sculpture student, displays her ‘Tumbling Man’ piece in the Chester French.
