Clements’ endeavor to draw what’s around her often draws her into very large-scale work; the first work I saw 10 years ago was a 78-foot long drawing done during a residency in Middlebury, VT. Her work usually develops in a serendipitous way—she responds to what she sees and doesn’t know the end point until she reaches it. She may begin working on a very modest scale but the work often ends up many times larger as she glues pieces of paper to the edges of the working drawing where she decides to continue drawing. The wrinkles and tears that develop as a result of her process are the record of a very active, performative drawing practice. (above: Boiler, ink on paper. 2010)
Cheryl Donegan defines a generation of artists, many of whom are women, who first engaged in a new conceptual art practice in the early 1990s. Her work integrates the time-based, gestural forms of performance and video with forms such as painting, drawing, and installation. Provocative and irreverent, her body-based, performative video works put a subversive spin on issues relating to sex, gender, art-making, art history, and pop culture. (above: Untitled, acrylic and spray paint on canvas, 2009)
Patricia Treib’s works were recently exhibited in “Besides, With, Against, and Yet: Abstraction and The Ready-Made Gesture” at the Kitchen. A solo presentation of her work was exhibited at John Connelly Presents in 2008. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at Andrew Kreps and Guild & Greyshkul in New York, and Sutton Lane in Paris. She was awarded a studio residency through the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation in 2007. Treib lives and works in Brooklyn. (above: Icons, acrylic and spray paint on canvas, 2008)

An opening and reception for the artists will be held Tuesday, April 13th from 5:30 to 8:00 PM on the 4th floor of the Student Center (SUBO). Please join us for lots of food, drink and conviviality.
MFA Showcase is a group show featuring the work of 23 artists currently enrolled in the Brooklyn College Art MFA program. This new exhibition allows anyone in the Brooklyn College community to view, all in one place, a sampling of the world-class artwork that is being produced in the student studios of Boylan Hall. The artworks will visually enhance the fourth floor meeting and event spaces for the campus community.
Next fall, when a new group of Art MFA students arrives and has started working, the exhibition will be re-hung with all new work. In that way it will be regularly refreshed and will continue to represent the students currently in the program.
