The San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery is proud to present Immediate Future, featuring works by the recipients of the 2008 Murphy & Cadogan Fellowships in the Fine Arts. This exhibition provides a first-glance at what is being produced by promising artists within regional graduate programs. For many featured artists this exhibition marks their first major exposure, and for all participants it represents an opportunity to share what they have been developing in their graduate studios with a broader audience.

The Murphy & Cadogan Fellowships in the Fine Arts are annual awards sponsored by The San Francisco Foundation to assist art students in funding their final year of graduate studies. In partnership with the Foundation, the Arts Commission Gallery is committed to showcasing works by outstanding Bay Area art students through the annual fellowship exhibition. The jurors for this year’s awards were Lisa Dent, Charles Mobley, Denise Ruiz and Meg Shiffler.

Bay Area colleges and universities represented by the twenty-four 2008 recipients are the Academy of Art University, California College of the Arts, Mills College, The San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco State University and Stanford University. Media represented in the show includes drawing, film & video, installation, mixed media, painting, printmaking, performance and sculpture.
