Memphis College of Art Hosts Disegno 6
MEMPHIS, Tenn.—Memphis College of Art will host Disegno 6: Contemporary Undergraduate Drawing, May 16 – July 14 in the Main Gallery of MCA’s Rust Hall, 1930 Poplar Ave., Overton Park.
The participating student artists from MCA are Christian Brown, Evan Hoffman, Fidencio Martinez, Kate Mattingly and Jennifer McClish. McClish earned her bachelor of fine arts degree in December 2012. Hoffman and Martinez are graduating this semester. Works by students from other participating colleges are also featured in the show.
Disegno 6 is a traveling group exhibition of drawings by undergraduate students from art institutions across the United States. These exhibitions bring together works by students who find the discipline of drawing to be at the core of their education, regardless of their chosen field.
The Disegno exhibition series was created and is facilitated annually by Jessie Fisher, associate professor of painting at the Kansas City Art Institute.
This is the sixth year for the touring exhibition, which began its run at the Maryland Institute College of Art earlier this year. It then moved to the Kansas City Art Institute and the University of South Carolina before arriving at MCA for its final show.
Rust Hall’s galleries are open Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.; and Sunday noon – 3 p.m. All of MCA’s galleries are open to the public, and admission is free.
