Intro
The 2018 MFA and BFA degree shows at the State University of New York at New Paltz represent a wide range of thinking, formats, and presentation that collectively reveal the diverse concerns and directions of the jewelry and metalsmithing field. Throughout the thesis year, students maintain individual dialogue with Metal Program faculty as well as engage in productive peer critiques, leading students to identify emergent and critical questions surrounding their work and establish clear goals for their independent research. Ultimately, the culmination is a focused body of work that melds exploration, disciplined skill, content, critical thinking, and articulate writing. Additionally, each degree candidate spends significant time developing, analyzing, and building display strategies that effectively support the content of their work to be exhibited in the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz.
