Boston Art Review: Our Favorite Art Moments of 2022
This review was first published in the Boston Art Review on December 30, 2022.
The editors at Boston Art Review nailed down their favorite art moments of 2022, what they considered the stand-out exhibitions and events of the past year. We’re honored that BU School of Visual Arts‘ MFA Painting and Sculpture Thesis 2022 Exhibition, which was on view from March 18-April 3 at BU Art Galleries‘ Faye G., Jo, and James Stone Gallery, was included as an editor’s pick.
I stumbled across Boston University’s MFA exhibition at Stone Gallery and discovered a treasure trove of eighteen emerging artists. The group of painters and sculptors started their MFA studies in fall of 2020, a uniquely peculiar time to fortify one’s artistic curiosities.

This remarkable group of students started their MFA journey in the Fall of 2020, optimistic that the confusion and uncertainty of a global pandemic would soon fade. The works in this exhibition point to where each artist started nearly two years ago, to a point of arrival today, and to where they may be heading. The strength of their efforts suggests an overwhelming potential that fills us with hope.
