University Art Gallery exhibit features three MFA candidates; virtual reception Oct. 22

Now through Oct. 27, the University Art Gallery is host to the culminating exhibitions of three Master of Fine Arts candidates for the Department of Art and Design at Indiana State University.

Candidates Zhengyun Guo, Samantha Osborne and Julia Reich will share details about their work on display during a virtual reception at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 22. Visit for the Zoom link to attend and join the conversation.

As an artist, Reich listens to people talk, and captures conversations as they happen in real time using pictures, words and color. This can be done on a large, analog scale using markers on paper – where she is up in front of a room – or digitally for remote experiences such as virtual meetings, as participants watch the drawing take shape on a screen. This kind of work is referred to by many names: graphic facilitation, visual note-taking, scribing, and even visual harvesting. She most often uses the term graphic recording. Regardless of nomenclature, there are three aspects to her process: listening, thinking and drawing – and she has to do all of these things in quick succession since she is working live.
