Ideasthesia: 7 Sensory Perceptions is a group exhibition featuring first year artists from AU’s MFA Studio Art program. The running themes of their work reveal investigations into perception and identity. This undercurrent of perception is approached by the use of different media including painting, installation, mixed media, and sculpture. This exhibition showcases the artists’ explorations of subject matter arising from the 2019-2020 AU academic year.

Featuring Artists

Pixie Alexander, Patrick Burns, Amber Cruz, Jonathan Ege, Kiki McGrath, Kevin Michael Runyon, and Allyssa Ray Yamaguchi.
