This exhibition features the work of 13 artists from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, as a completion of an artists’ exchange between MFA students from both Illinois State University and UMASS. Initiated by Shona MacDonald, former ISU Associate Professor, and current Associate Professor in the Department of Art, Architecture and Art History at UMASS, the exchange was designed to showcase works by emerging MFA students from both institutions while highlighting a developing relationship between the two schools. UMASS held its exhibition of ISU works, Four More Than 2, from March 21 through April 1, 2011, in the UMASS Student Union Art Gallery.
Artists exhibited in the current exhibition include: Theresa Antonellis, Katie Baker, John Michael Byrd, Courtney Cullen, Michelle Dickson, Josh Field, Michele Lauriat, Ariel Lavery, Hannah Richards, Chad Seelig, Steve Snell, Karla Stingerstein, and Caroline Valites.
