The Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art Program at the University of Saskatchewan proudly presents five thesis exhibitions by MFA candidates: Rod Goertzen, Emily Conlon, Chelsea Brant, Louisa Ferguson, and Jesse Fulcher Gagnon. Exhibitions are being held at the Gordon Snelgrove Gallery, The Gallery at Frances Morrison Central Library, and The Gallery at art placement inc.

For the first time we will also present a group exhibition of the graduating class, AIRING, that will examine their research paths in relation and give public presence to the cohort as a whole both on campus and within the spaces of our community partners. All galleries are accessible with either first floor entrance or elevator, accessible washrooms, wide unobstructed paths and elevator access. If you require accessibility supports to visit the Gordon Snelgrove Gallery, we ask that you contact us at 306-966-4208 to make arrangements in advance. Accessible access is possible through the Murray Library.
