Alex Conrad with his work

MFA alumnus Alex Conrad (CCAD 2012) will be showing his work in the First Street Gallery’s 2012 MFA National Competition in New York City.

The annual exhibition is open exclusively to MFA students throughout the United States. Juried by John Yau, art critic, poet, and professor at Rutgers University, the exhibition features paintings, drawings, prints, mixed media, and sculpture.

Conrad’s final thesis project involved embedding X-ray and MRI films in resin. Inspiration was pulled from his childhood. His father was a radiologist, and when he was on call Conrad would often play with his X-ray films and their backlighting.

    Alex – “Your work is every thing that you are” – someone once said that. Don’t know who. Anyway, you have some interesting art work & you had some excellent guidance from Ric Petry & the MFA faculty.
