Exhibition Description
The Katherine E. Nash Gallery presents Kaleidoscope, a group exhibition of 35 artists about to complete the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota. The artwork represented is made in a diverse range of media including, ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, textiles and video.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program at the University of Minnesota is a highly selective undergraduate degree program in the Department of Art intended for students who plan to pursue a professional career in the arts or prepare for a master’s degree program. Outstanding candidates are reviewed by a panel of art faculty from a variety of media areas. Acceptance is based on the quality of the artwork submitted and the students potential for artistic development. As the culmination of their study, students present their work in a public exhibition at the Regis Center for Art. Nationally recognized, the BFA program offers degrees and specialties in six main fields: Painting and Drawing, Printmaking, Ceramics, Sculpture, Photography and Experimental Media Arts (EMA).

Katherine E. Nash Gallery Mission
The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is a research laboratory for the practice and interpretation of the visual arts. The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is a center for discourse on the practice of studio art and its relationship to culture and society -- a place where we examine our assumptions about the past and suggest possibilities for the future. We value collaboration: we will work in collaboration with the students, faculty, and staff in the Department of Art and all departments at the University of Minnesota. We value outreach: our collaborations will embrace diversity in all its forms and extend beyond the University of Minnesota to include the local, regional, national and international communities, from Minneapolis to New York to Bejing; from St. Paul to San Francisco to Montevideo. We value experimentation and excellence: from exhibition planning to public programs we will strive to expand the discourse in our field while making the best possible effort in all areas. http://nash.umn.edu/

Department of Art Mission
The Department of Art provides an introduction to the practice of art for all students as well as immersive training for emerging artists. We promote creative expression and conceptual development through a broad range of art disciplines and practices. Initial experiences emphasizing traditional methods are supplemented at intermediate and advanced levels by experimental processes. We offer courses in painting and drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics and experimental media (EMA). Students pursue their work in our state of the art facilities, mentored by our faculty, all artists recognized in their fields. http://www.art.umn.edu/
