USI MAC/Pace Galleries to present 2023 Efroymson Bridge Year Fellowship


The Efroymson Bridge Year Fellowship Exhibition, From Here She Grows, is currently on display at the McCutchan Art Center/Pace (MAC/Pace) Galleries in the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center on campus. The show will be on display through February 5.

Olivia Supper, the 2022 recipient of the Fellowship, is the featured artist for From Here She Grows. Supper’s colorful installation and print works create dream-like narrative vignettes which speak to both the fecundity and breakdown of nature and the feminine. The exhibition also incorporates sketches, hand-made stencils, photopositives and other ephemera from the printmaking processes used to create her finished works.

A public reception for the exhibition will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, January 15 in the MAC/Pace Galleries.

The Efroymson Bridge Year Fellowship is a competitive program awarded to one graduating senior or recent alum from USI’s Art and Design Department annually. The goal of the Efroymson Bridge Year Fellowship is to fund a post-undergraduate year, allowing the recipient to focus on their studio practice to expand their artistic vision and enhance their portfolio, to gain maturity as an art maker and to successfully gain entrance to graduate school in his/her area of expertise.

The MAC/PACE Galleries are open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays.
