The National Wet Paint MFA Biennial Exhibition 2014 is an outlook and an overview of top MFA painting programs in the United States. Wet Paint refers to the idea that this is a fresh group of artists. They are MFA (Masters of Fine Arts) candidates and recent MFA recipients working primarily in the medium of painting. Now on its fourth edition this growing and highly competitive juried exhibition will bring to Chicago some of the most talented emerging artists in the country. Wet Paint 2014 is fully funded by the Zhou B. Art Center which makes it possible for graduate students to submit works for consideration at no cost. Wet Paint 2014 takes place from January 13 to February 15 in the spacious second floor gallery of the Zhou B Art Center. Wet Paint is juried and curated by Sergio Gomez, MFA.
Wet Paint 2014 seeks to highlight traditional and experimental ways contemporary artists incorporate and embrace painting as their primary medium.
