Contemporary Arts Forum will present the exhibition Headgear for Tony from MFA students at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
The opening reception will be Saturday May 19, 6:30-8 p.m. at Santa Barbara’s Contemporary Arts Forum. The exhibition will be open to the public with free admission from May 20 through July 8.
Headgear for Tony presents fresh work from artists who are receiving their MFAs. These artists include Tim Brown, Jared Flores, Emily Halbardier, Bessie Kunath, Jae Lee, Nick Loewen, Ruby Osorio, Rimas Simaitis and Van Tran. The artists work is shaped by their experiences in the UCSB Department of Art’s Graduate Program, which emphasizes interdisciplinary and innovative approaches to art-making and the utilization of campus resources.
The exhibit will also feature paintings inspired by California’s wildfires in Bloom Projects by Susanna Vapnek. These projects are titled Sundowner, a reference to dangerous and uncontrollable hot winds that descend from the mountains to the sea fueling fires into raging infernos.
