Western Connecticut State University has a Masters of Fine Arts Program presided over by noted illustrator Abe Echevarria
Here's a painting from one of last year's MFA students, Perry Obee "Studio Corner with a Reflected Painting" oil on paper.
I had a chance to visit the school in November and tour the downstairs cubicles where the small and congenial group of illustration MFA students worked on a variety of themes, from zoo posters to paper sculpture.
Now you can see the fruits of their labors at the Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) Thesis Exhibition, featuring the paintings and illustrations of WestConn M.F.A. students.
It is currently on display from noon to 4 p.m. weekdays through Friday, April 16, in the Higgins Gallery in Higgins Hall on the university's Midtown campus, 181 White St. in Danbury, Connecticut. The exhibition is free and open to the public. For more information, call (203) 837-8881.
