The University Art Gallery (UAG) is proud to present dis-continuum: 2019 MFA Thesis Exhibition, featuring the work by MFA candidates Cleo Arevalo and Fernando Enriquez. dis-continuum links Arevalo and Enriquez through the duality of their years growing up in both Juarez, Mexico and El Paso, Texas. Both artists focus on their binary heritage, and the complexities that arise from these connections. NMSU Visiting Assistant Professor, Joshua Clark, remarks of their practices, “Arevalo’s work addresses the strategies used in the systemic globalized oppression of the masses, and in Enriquez’s work one can glimpse the results of this globalized capitalist system on a local and personalized scale.”

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10 AM – 4 PM

Reveries: 2019 BFA Thesis Exhibition
On view: April 26 – May 11, 2019
Opening reception: Friday, April 26, 2019, 5:30 PM 
University Art Gallery

The University Art Gallery (UAG) is proud to present Reveries: 2019 BFA Thesis Exhibition, which features artwork by six BFA candidates: Debbie Jo Baxter, Angelica Jones, Bernadette Larimer, Raquel Madrigal, Saul Ramirez and Carissa Staples. The common thread between the artists in this exhibition is their exploration and use of unexpected media–pushing the boundaries of their respective art practices to tackle controversial issues, like self-image, identity, intimacy and the current world around them.

In conjunction with this event, the MFA exhibition opening is concurrently taking place in the UAG. Both receptions are free and open to the public.
