NMSU Art Museum hosts BFA, MFA candidates’ art show


The New Mexico State University Art Museum (UAM) will host an opening reception Friday, Nov. 19 for exhibitions featuring the work of bachelor of fine arts (BFA) and master of fine arts (MFA) candidates from NMSU. The reception, which is free and open to the public, will be 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at UAM, 1308 E. University Ave., inside Devasthali Hall.

The MFA exhibition is titled “Leftovers: 2021 MFA Thesis Exhibition.” The BFA exhibition is called “Dis | Connected BFA Thesis Exhibition.”

To register for tickets to the reception or to see the exhibitions in person, visit https://uam.nmsu.edu/timed-tickets/. Follow the instructions on the page and click on “CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.”

A web-based, virtual tour of the exhibits will be made available the following week for those unable to attend the opening the following week.

The exhibitions will continue through Saturday, Dec. 18.

Maggie Day, Alex Nipper and Donovan Noelle Swann will share their work in the MFA exhibit, while works of Brontë Procell, Brigitte Kearns and Analinda Gonzalez will be featured in the BFA show.

“Leftovers” examines how each artist exposes facades to question their own narrative through the use of materials, process and objects as they relate to specific times and places, NMSU said in a news release.

“Each artist exercises a keen awareness of the expectations and materialization of social constructs, the performances that exist within various communities and the related impacts on the development of personal and collective identity,” NMSU assistant art professor Bree Lamb said.

“Dis | Connected” exhibits the relationships among immigration, psychology vs. physiology and transcendental environment, NMSU said.

Both exhibitions include free artist talks.

The BFA artists talk is 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30. Register at https://nmsu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUuduirrjIpHNUHPTiLhzxgNntDTqbEl_CZ.

The MFA artists talk, which will be in person, will be 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2 at UAM.
