As the thesis exhibition of MFA candidates graduating from UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art, “Downstream” was named to represent the flowing current which carried them together through the three-year program and now splits into diverging streams, leading them into new landscapes to continue their practice. Artists include Rosie Brock, Luka Carter, Casey Connelly, Victoria Dugger, Isys Hennigar, Matthew Hoban, Craig Howarth, Forrest Lawson and Annie Simpson. Ranging in media, themes reflect interests in the current climate crisis, processing trauma, racial stereotypes and late-stage capitalism. During MFA Speaks, the students will discuss their unique processes and bodies of work. “Downstream” will remain on view through May 14.
