VISION: 2016 Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition showcases the accomplishments of nearly 35 forthcoming graduates from the BFA program in the Department of Art + Art History at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM). VISION suggests each student’s thoughts, concepts and manifestations near the completion of coursework towards a B.F.A.degree. The students have endeavored to create their most challenging and ambitious artworks yet.
This group exhibition is a culmination of a semester-long focused exploration of professional studio practice. Their pieces in graphic design, drawing and painting, glass, ceramics, fiber, printmaking, photography, and sculpture show a diverse range of ideas and techniques. The Graphic Design program presents its students’ work in The Commons Gallery. The works of the students in the Studio Art program are featured at The Art Gallery at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.
Guitarist Aaron Cardenas will provide music at the opening reception. Cardenas received his Bachelor of Music degree from the Department of Music, UHM, 2015, and will attend graduate school this fall. He has been teaching and performing professionally since he was sixteen.
