(March 31, 2010)--The UTSA Department of Art and Art History will host an M.F.A. thesis exhibition with works by M.F.A. degree candidates Clay McClure, Lupe Mendoza and Esteban Delgado. Free and open to the public, the exhibit will run April 1-25 at the UTSA Satellite Space in Blue Star Arts Complex Suite 115 at S. Alamo and Probandt streets.
>> An opening reception is 6-9 p.m., Thursday, April 1. The exhibit also will be open First Friday, 6-9 p.m., April 2. First Friday is the monthly gallery open house in San Antonio's Southtown district near downtown.
The work of Clay McClure combines hybrid sculptural forms made from antique and thrift-store furniture, exploring the evolution of physical, social and personal identities as a person ages. The paintings of Esteban Delgado explore the relationships between shapes and colors by configuring familiar shapes into abstract spaces. The photography of Lupe Mendoza fragments images into an illogical narrative, mimicking the ambiguous role images play in the memory of experience.
For the artists, the exhibition marks the culmination of academic work as UTSA graduate students in fulfillment of requirements for the master of fine arts degree.
