Upcoming Virtual Program Announcement:

An Artist Conversation with Masha R. Fard
Thursday, April 22, 2021, 6:30PM
Registration is required

The Julio Fine Arts Gallery presents An Artist Conversation with Masha R. Fard, in connection with this year’s common text, Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen. Iranian artist and recent graduate of the LeRoy E. Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Mahsa R. Fard often finds herself painting manmade, large-scale structures such as cities, stadiums, and apparatuses. Ever conscious of the dominance of a rigid patriarchal gaze both in the public and private sphere, her paintings address many parallel themes to those raised in Jose Antonio Vargas’s book, such as fundamental questions of access—to public and private space, to opportunity, to place and homeland. Mahsa R. Fard currently lives and works in Baltimore, MD.

This event is Co-Sponsored by Messina and the Julio Fine Arts Gallery. The Gallery is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council, msac.org

Established in 1985, the Julio Fine Arts Gallery is committed to providing exhibitions that are both innovative and intellectually challenging to Loyola University and the public at large. 

Located in the Julio Fine Arts Wing of the DeChiaro College Center, the Gallery also houses a permanent collection that includes prints and paintings by artists such as Rouault, Klee, and Red Grooms, as well as several African sculptures.

All gallery events are free and open to the public and draw participation from not only the university community but from local art lovers too. The Gallery is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council, msac.org.
