Katrina Rattermann, current 1st year MFA Ceramics grad at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, was accepted into the 9th Annual Master Pieces exhibition at Manifest Gallery located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Above is an image of her work, Bleeding Heart, Part II, installed at Manifest Gallery. Rattermann spent the week leading up to the opening of the exhibition installing her mixed media installation on site.
Background: The Master Pieces exhibition is an exhibit of works by current or recent graduates of MFA programs across the United States. This 9th installment of the Master Pieces project continues to reveal the intensity and professionalism of students working towards their terminal academic degree in the field of art or design. The works selected for this exhibition are believed to be works that in the truest sense of the term are "contemporary masterpieces" – in other words, works that set the standard of quality that the artist is expected to maintain throughout his or her professional career and justify the degree of Master. All 5 of Manifest's exhibit spaces are devoted to the 9th Annual Master Pieces exhibition. This is the only exhibit to-date which is presented throughout the entire gallery facility.
The 9th Annual Master Pieces exhibition is on view from July 10th to August 7th, 2015 at Manifest Gallery located in Cincinnati, Ohio. There will be an opening reception held on Friday, July 10th from 6-9pm. If you are in the area, check it out!
