BFA Fine Arts Students from SVA Exhibit at Utrecht SoHo

December 6, 2013

Twenty-three students from BFA Fine Arts Department faculty member Tobi Kahn’s Foundation Painting class are participating in an upcoming exhibition at Utrecht’s SoHo location. rumble200The students were invited to display their work in the art supply store’s window gallery after representatives visited Kahn’s class to conduct a paint making demonstration and were impressed with what they saw.

Each student is contributing one painting from a class assignment to the group exhibition, which is “loosely curated” by Kahn, who is enthusiastic about the opportunity for his students’ work to be seen. Students in the year-long class practice a wide range of painting techniques, both formal and conceptual. This semester, assignments include lessons in composition, light, color and form, through painting from photographs and still life as well as from the imagination. According to Kahn, “What interests me most is that students find their own voice.”
