In continuation with the MFA thesis exhibition at the Fine Art Museum in the Fine & Performing Arts Center at Western Carolina University, Gallery 86 will host nineteen artists of the MFA graduate program in a collaborative exhibit.

At the core of Master of Fine Arts study at Western Carolina University is the relationship between motivated emerging artists accepted into the MFA program and the experience of professional faculty. Graduate students benefit from internationally acclaimed artists and critics who challenge their ideas and stimulate their individual visions. The focus of the MFA is a ten-week Summer Intensive program dedicated to establishing a full artistic environment. During three intense periods of study, between June and August, students and faculty engage in discourse on various issues including the function of contemporary criticism and theory, the nature of current national and international exhibitions, and the critique of studio work that is being created.
