Works by graduating students in the MFA in Studio Art and MFA in Photography programs at SACI

Opening Reception on April 19 at 6pm
Galleria Il Ponte, via di Mezzo 42b

On view from April 19-23

"Penombra" is the title chosen by the seven graduating artists in the SACI MFA in Studio Art and MFA in Photography programs for their final exhibition at Galleria Il Ponte. Very similar to the English word penumbra, this Italian word derives from Latin "paene" (almost) "umbra" (shadow). At first glance, it may seem inappropriate as a title for the final effort of these MFA graduates, yet, as the great 20th-century Spanish philosopher Maria Zambrano wrote, even the sun finds its own freedom only among the shadows, in the penumbra. Avoiding absolute darkness and blinding illumination, artists learn to navigate in the penumbra, enabling them to reach out as far as possible.
-Filipe Rocha da Silva, Director of MFA in Studio Art Program
