"2011 MFA Juried Exhibition" @ First Street Gallery

With the majority of local galleries showing experienced and established artists, you may occasionally feel the need to balance your art intake by actively seeking out some raw not-yet-refined talents. That pursuit may take you to a more emerging scene like Brooklyn, or you can fill that void in Chelsea when there's a group show for MFA students - like the one currently at First Street Gallery. The exhibition, which is said to be the start of an annual tradition, is juried by Susanna Coffey, an artist and professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).

Artists on display: Gina Adams, Carrie Adams, Martin Arnold, Jamie Bates, Isabelle Day, Andrea Degener, Rebecca George, Clarissa Gerber, Amber Hany, Andrew Hendrixson, Jesse Howell. Erica Kempler, Junsoo Kim, Anne LaFond, Virginia McKinney, Erica Nickol, Virginia Pierrepont, Todd Pospichal, Mackenzie Reynolds, Benjamin Rogers, Samuel Scharf, Jason Thompson, David Titterington and Sarah Stewart Wright.
