The graduate thesis exhibit of the Master of Fine Arts degree recipients in painting and illustration will open Tuesday, June 21, in New York City’s Chelsea district at the Blue Mountain Gallery and will officially open with a reception on Thursday, June 23, from 5 to 8 p.m.

The Master of Fine Arts is the terminal degree for practicing artists, and the thesis exhibit is the capstone experience of that program, demonstrating a personal direction and mastery in the work of graduating artists.

This year 10 M.F.A. students — seven painters and three illustrators — have a wide variety of philosophies and approaches. The painters include Isabelle Day, Kevin Dunn, Doug Friday, Mark Kuchta, Alison Targett-Eaglin, Eileen Tavolacci and Sarah Wright. Illustrators are Thomas A. Dowell Jr., Tiffany Raccio and Bonnie Rose Sullivan.

The exhibit runs to July 9 at the Blue Mountain Gallery Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The gallery is at 530 W. 25th St., Fourth Floor in New York City.
