Riverside, CA – UCR Sweeney Art Gallery presents the annual MFA Thesis Show 2010 with  works by four graduating MFA students in UCR’s Department of Art: Ashley Landrum  (sculpture), Alia Malley (photography), Courtney Oquist (painting) and Evans Wittenberg  (photography).

They join the ranks of Master of Fine Arts graduates from art departments and art schools  across Southern California, a region that has become known for transforming its art students  into major players on the international art scene. UCR’s MFA Thesis exhibition is distinctive  because it is the only graduate student exhibition in Southern California presented in an  off-campus, public setting. Raising the bar of professionalism through public presentations not  nly assists students in their future careers, but also exemplifies the value UC Riverside  places on the unique role of art in linking campus and community.

The distinguished full-time faculty in UCR’s Art Department includes John Divola, Jill  Giegerich, Jim Isermann, Brandon Lattu, Charles Long, Erika Suderburg, Melissa Thorne and  Amir Zaki.

The MFA Thesis exhibition is presented at UCR/California Museum of Photography this year  as

Sweeney Art Gallery is in the process of moving into its new location at the Barbara and Art Culver Center of the Arts, which opens to the public with gala events, October 7-9, 2010.
