IMAGES: Student work

Since I skipped the art fairs last week, I had time to stop by a few vibrant (but short-run) student exhibitions. Here are images of promising work from “Thru-Line,” the Brooklyn College MFA program show and “Anti-Pro,” the Open Studio event at the New York Studio Residency Program. The BC MFA show, curated by Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori, was spaciously installed on the third floor of Moynihan Station, and I was pleasantly surprised by the number of painters graduating this year.
