The Blue Mountain Gallery is pleased to exhibit Western Connecticut State University Master of Fine Arts Thesis Exhibition 2015. A reception will be held on Thursday, June 18, from 5–8 pm, and is free and open to the public. The exhibit will run through July 3.

The Master of Fine Arts is the terminal degree for practicing artists, and the Thesis Exhibition is the capstone experience of that program, demonstrating a personal direction and mastery in the work of the artists. This year eight graduate students present their work.
Kerri Gaudelli has an interest in space as both a place and theoretical idea and she uses the scientific method of two-point perspective to explore her fascination of our place in the vast universe.
Kanika Khurana  takes a mixed media approach to her work in illustration, using traditional drawing materials in conjunction with digital techniques.
Stacey Kolbig “re-purposes the terms of painting through sculptural form” that includes paper, metal string and shadows.
Colleen McGuire depicts images of domestic interiors in which a sense of time and place is captured.
 Jill Harrington Nichols  exhibits works with  brush marks that add a fresh directness to her subjects, from small in-situ seascapes to large constructed paintings.
Peri Pfenninger presents a growing body of work that includes oil paintings, monotypes, and charcoal drawings, often done on-site at the Westside campus of WCSU.
Abbie Rabinowitz focuses solely figurative with an emphasis on human connection and tenderness.
Corinne Speidel creates paintings in oil, charcoal and sand on canvas.
