VCUQatar Presents the ‘BFA & MFA Exhibition’

VCUQatar presents the ‘BFA & MFA Exhibition’, the annual exhibition of Qatar’s graduating artists and designers on Sunday, 5 May, 2013 with an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Saffron Hall and the Gallery at VCUQatar.

The exhibition is a celebration of the work of all graduating students from VCUQatar's BFA and MFA programs, and is an opportunity to discover the very best of new art and design talent in Qatar today.

Featuring a wide range of work that represents the culmination of the techniques and concepts developed throughout their experience at VCUQatar, the exhibition invites visitors to discover the departmental exhibition zones in the Saffron Hall and Gallery. This exhibition also contributes to the wider Graduation celebrations taking place around the same time. The exhibition will run until 20 June, 2013.

“Graduation is of course a hugely exciting time for our students, and a culmination of their experience at VCUQatar,” said Caitlín Doherty, exhibitions and speaker curator at VCUQatar. “It is particularly exciting, therefore, that the BFA and MFA Exhibition forms part of these celebrations because it provides an opportunity, really for the first time, to bring together all of our graduating students, from across all design disciplines, and showcase their creative achievements. For most, this is the first time that they have formally exhibited, not as students, but rather as designers, and so this is a wonderful opportunity for family, friends, and the general public to see their work, but also for industry representatives to see the work of emerging talent here in Qatar.”

‘BFA & MFA Exhibition’ will open on 5 May, 2013 with a reception from 5:30 to 7:00 PM at the Saffron Hall and Gallery at VCUQatar, and run until 20 June, 2013.  The Gallery at VCUQatar is open to the public Sunday to Thursday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
