ALFRED, NY - The Alfred University School of Art and Design held its annual Bachelor of Fine Arts thesis exhibitions earlier this month and faculty have voted to present the Senior Show Award to C. Grace Fossett.

Gerar Edizel, dean of the School of Art and Design, described Fossett’s B.F.A. exhibition as one "that brims with critical intelligence in the use of art historical references together with a captivating oneiric quality brought forth with a delightful sense of humor."

Fossett, an interdisciplinary artist, earned her B.F.A. degree from Alfred University. She was one of 55 B.F.A. degree candidates who displayed their thesis work in the Senior Shows in Saturday, May 9. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the B.F.A. thesis exhibitions, as well as the Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibitions, held Friday, May 15, were presented in a virtual format.
