FIELD NOTES: My MFA career at UNLV winds down with an invitation to the public to visit the artist’s studios, in my case a former classroom in the oldest building on campus, Grant Hall. The current MFA Candidates are across the street in GRA, a former Carl's Jr . . . As the pitch says the evening will be a way to see MFA's work in progress. For us short-timers it is a chance to hold a fire sale. ANOTHER PITCH: I planned to use the last few weeks to get final studio time in, so there may be non-Bunko stuff to see. Or you can pick up a BUNKO box for ten bucks. Some are spoken for. A few will be available.
ALSO: That evening will also be the closing reception for the talented Nanda Sharif-Pour’s MFA Midway Exhibition, “Alienation.” That will be from 6:30 to 9 p.m. . . . Incoming Artists: There is exciting work by UNLV BFA students Amanda Keating, Clarice Cuda, Julie Meyers, Nicole Weber, Sarah Arnold and Ty Suksangasophon. They will talk about their work at the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art Auditorium at 6 p.m. The exhibition and opening reception at Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery will be from 7:30 to 9 p.m. . . Last but not least: Laura Brennan's Thesis exhibition, "Transience," will be from June 8 - June 22. The reception will be June 15, 2018, at the Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery.
