GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The 2016 MFA Thesis Exhibition showcases works by the four artists graduating this spring from the SF State School of Art’s Master of Fine Arts program, and had its campus reception Thursday, April 21. The exhibition features a dynamic presentation of sculpture, textile, painting and installation art with works by Arteche, Abac, Bellows and Virsik. The four artists had varied perspectives on whether their shared experiences through the course of the program impacted their work. “It’s kind of serendipitous,” Arteche said. “We’re a small class compared to the other classes, but I wouldn’t necessarily say we’re all working together or we have a lot of the same ideas. It’s not like we made things to respond to each other’s work. Probably the one thing that influenced each other was color. I don’t think I would have been making things with this type of color.”
