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

As I mentioned in the previous post below, here are some of the images I took of our CCA MFA Class of 2011 Exhibition, both from the night of the opening on May 12 and from the much quieter days to follow.  My humble apologies to the artists I missed.  (Please double-click on images for larger views).

Angus Haller created a silkscreened printscape of visual noise coupled with a soundscape of musical noise to make an immersive installation for the audience.

Julie Henson's super-hard-to-photograph installation room with theater props, mirrors, and lights to reflect her sparkly trees.

Marissa Botelho's equally hard-to-photograph immersive head-goes-in-the-box installation, where she created mini lanscapes.
Inside the box
Marissa also created a video game come to life with her reenactment of Red Dead Redemption's lasso move, and the feeling of disappointment of reality.
Elizabeth Dorbad's epic theater prop/carnival disaster installation
Victoria DeBlassie's intensely laborious sewn orange peel hut
Courtney Johnson's wild child women paintings

Mark Taylor's screen prints of wear patterns on records, along with a box set of prints and a clever projected image on record player. 
The box set, with liner notes and song titles he makes up
Rachel Dawson's classy display of all her various projects in one room- psychic analysis video, lit clay sculptures, and photo realist vessel painting.

Mark Benson's "It's art/it's not art" ready-made sculptures of over-stacked dish rack and towel-strewn drums
Benson's special one-night display of inflatable blue dancing guys
C. Wright Daniel's photograms of crumpled paper
Nancy Nowacek's "Get in this room and walk in fake snow" construction
Sarah Hotchkiss's space data center

Katie Dorame's paintings of Westward expansion
Rachel Foster's lovely screen-prints of mysterious imagery

Natasha Wheat's purposely opaque "situational construction" of  symbols of labor and consumerism with unreadable neon letters and painted palettes
Wheat's digital prints on silk of laborers in Panama
Allison Rowe poses in front of her RV-turned-mobile-environmental-educational tool
Once more, and with feeling:  Congrats to my Class of 2011!  I'll miss you!

Here are some more shots of both our MFA show at CCA, as well as SFAI's MFA show from Art Business, some shots by Meighan at My Love For You is a Stampede of Horses, as well as the JD Beltran article in the SF Gate I previously posted.
