This exhibition is a sampling of the artwork of the 2023 Master of Fine Art graduates from Laguna College of Art + Design (LCAD). The quality, creativity, and individuality is a testament to the dedication and independence of these artists. Remarkable artists are attracted to LCAD because of the understanding that time-honored skill joined with personal contemporary concerns can create vital, memorable art.
Outlook/Insight at Laguna Art Museum implies that the mindful engagement with the outer visible world builds personal insights that express, not only what things look like, but what they can make you feel. The rational and the poetic are made apparent to the viewer who takes time to observe and reflect.
The LCAD effect refers to the impact that these artists may have on the larger world. LCAD takes the necessary time to nurture and enable artist to find their own voice. No style, template, or doctrine interferes with the personal development that leads to important enduring art.
