USU MFA exhibition

Last night I snuck out of the house for an hour to check out the MFA graduate exhibition at the school. The show features all the current fine art graduate students from all of the various art disciplines, although it seemed ceramics was the definite dominant medium. The art department created a new gallery this year to exhibit student work and that of visiting artists. It's always great to see the work in a formal setting. 

I missed the first half hour flurry of hungry students that were there to check out the work, support their grads and of course clean up the refreshment table. But despite not getting to sample any of Sunshine's flaky pastry treats, it was great to have the chance to look at the work "sans enfants" and mingle with Robin and his peers. Thanks to Kate for spending the dinner hour with my kids so that I could sneak away.
