USD graduate thesis exhibition on display at Day Gallery
Sara Fakhraie, from Tokyo, Japan, is graduating with a master of fines arts in painting. Her work combines representation and abstraction to represent fears and wonders of feminine childhood. Fakhraie’s uses of narratives, images and patterns are derived from Japanese, Persian, and American/European cultures. The result is a dream-like stage which explores the intricacies of human relationship and the infinite transformations we undergo in our environment.
Kate Hayes, a native of Philadelphia, Pa., is graduating with a Master of Fine Arts in Printmaking. Her work explores the connections between the self and the spaces–mental as well as physical– around it. Her imagery reflects her urban upbringing and blends with the stark influence of her time in the Dakotas. She exploits lithography and melds it with installation in order to address the complexities of human emotional gravity.
A reception for the artists is scheduled for Friday, April 9, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the John A. Day Gallery in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts. The gallery is open, at no cost to the public, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and from 1 to 5 p.m. on weekends. Tours and special showings during non-public hours are available upon request. For more information about this exhibition, please contact Art Galleries Director Eddie Welch at (605) 677-3177 or e-mail Eddie.Welch@usd.edu.
