National Wet Paint MFA Biennial 2018

Event Description:

Local artist Seonju Townsend from Towson University has been selected from a nation wide pool of MFA artists to participate in the National Wet Paint MFA Biennial 2018 in Chicago, Illinois.  The exhibition will take place from January 19 to February 12, 2018.

 

The National Wet Paint MFA Biennial is an outlook and an overview of emerging artists across the United States currently working in the medium of painting. Wet Paint refers to the idea that this is a fresh group of artists. They are MFA (Masters of Fine Arts) candidates and/or recent MFA recipients working primarily in the medium of painting.

 

The National Wet Paint Exhibition consists of 38 paintings by artists selected from a national call which resulted in over 250 submissions. The exhibition takes place in the expansive gallery of the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood. The Zhou B Art Center is a private, non-government funded art center designed to facilitate the exchange of contemporary art between Chicago and the international art community. The 87,000 square feet art center offers innumerable possibilities for exploring the arts in a charismatic location and collectively form an extravagant art center fusing culture and creativity.
