“No. 20” is the twentieth group of students to graduate from the Lesley University College of Art and Design’s MFA in Visual Arts program. This group has embraced change: as AIB has transformed into LUCAD, so have these students transformed into master artists. While this exhibition is the culmination of two years of intense study and focused time in the studio, it really is the beginning of the path for each of these artists. Members of the group have come to Boston from all four cardinal directions and include Judie Bamber, Alison Beste, Linda Brant, Andrea Castillo, Nina Earley, Joseph Fontinha, Amy Hagberg, Maria Jones, Stephanie Marcus, Matthew Meyer, Nathaniel Meyer, Wil Ott, Brian Randall, Sam Smart, Britt Snyder, Stacy Utley, and Andrew Yang.

Hailed as the “sexy group” these artists have been a united front since day one, despite many varied backgrounds and experiences. Former military personnel, scientists, boat builders, architects, bartenders, and teachers have come together to show the artistic practice that their time in Boston has lead to. These artists are pushing the limits of sculpture, painting, photography, and combinations of all three.
