CCA MFA Class of 2011 Exhibtion!!! (Part I)

I may be a little behind, but I have a giant post of coverage from my MFA exhibition which took place from May 12-21.  Walking around a few days later, it was ideal to take shots after the chaos of the opening.  On the evening of the reception, I was stuck at my post next to my paintings, so it wasn't until I walked around to get some photos that I got to spend some quality time with everyone's artwork.  I did not get to each artist in this post- some photos were bad and some I missed, so my apologies to anyone left out.  We had a stellar class and I'm super proud of all of us!

Here's one of my walls
Here's the other one
I wore a sweet suit!
Dave Sandoval's "Holiday Dinner Karaoke" was a crowd pleaser
Inside, you sat at one of four seats around a table with a microphone and a scrolling prompter of banal family dinner conversation.  Like, "Last year we went to Vegas", and the other seat:  "Oh, I didn't know that.  I like Blackjack".
A video projection on the table of a time-lapsed view of the dinner plates
Emily Eifler's super-ambitious interactive video game
Radka Pulliam's "constellations" of her charted walks around her Tenderloin neighborhood.  Some recorded items:  prostitutes and pee smells.  
Neil LeDoux's Headlands Tournesol Prize-winning cat mural
Carlos Ramirez's ceramic Mario Brothers blocks and blobs in the background
More Ramirez ceramic blobs
Jonathan Runcio's paintings and concrete sculptures on mini-plinths

Amber Stucke's drawings and mushroom spore paper hand-outs
