Laguna College of Art and Design’s (LCAD) MFA programs in Drawing and Painting are proud to present Taking Measure, an exhibition featuring more than twenty original drawings and paintings by current LCAD MFA candidates.

The exhibition’s title refers to the act of pausing to assess one’s positions, beliefs, expectations and wishes. The discipline of representational art also necessitates a constant taking of actual measurement of proportion, value, color and space. The thoughtful adjustments that artists make, and the eventual satisfactory resolutions, transfer to viewers who experience the complex processes that result in a work of art.
