‘One Word’ BFA Thesis Exhibition showcases contemporary art, UofM style

One Word, Part II of the Fall 2019 BFA Thesis Exhibition, featuring the work of six graduating seniors of The University of Memphis Department of Art, debuted earlier this month at The Martha and Robert Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art.

The exhibition is a compilation of works in a variety of media including photography and sculpture. The presentation celebrates the completion of their undergraduate studies and the culmination of each student’s artistic exploration and experiences. The mixed-media exhibition features work from six enterprising UofM artists: Ashlyn Creagh-Martinez, Julie Darling, Emily Hogan, Colt Houston, Kayla Owens and Kylon Wagner.

“I do photography and my big featured work for the show is a kind of surrealist photo collage,” said senior photography major Kayla Owens. “There’s so much that goes into putting together an art show that many people don’t think about: titling your work, installing the art and a number of other things that you don’t really expect. It’s been a great experience and I definitely plan to do more art shows in the future.”

The exhibition will be on view in The Martha and Robert Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art through December 6, 2019.
