SMFA MFA ARTISTS:
Riley Allen is an artist from Tulsa, Oklahoma. He received his BFA in Art, Technology & Culture from the University of Oklahoma, and is currently completing the MFA program at SMFA.
Hannah Bates attends the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston for her MFA and holds a BFA from CalArts. Her work uses the medium of photography to explore concepts of illusion, perception and sexuality. She has participated in shows in Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and Boston.
William Van Beckum is currently pursuing an MFA from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. His work is influenced by the study of human’s relationship with the natural world. William’s conceptual landscape imagery is based off of the tradition of landscape photography but expands the medium to examine how human presence alters natural spaces. The images map how modernity influences our time spent in nature.
Thomas Radovich received his BFA in painting from the University of Connecticut in 2010. He is currently studying for his MFA in printmaking at School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts. His work focuses on nostalgia, collection, obsession, and innocence.
