Clemson University MFA in Art Candidate, Mandy Ferguson, in the 2017 Atlanta Print Biennial

Mandy Ferguson, Demolition (Transitional Landscape II)
Clemson University MFA in Art Candidate, Mandy Ferguson, will exhibit in the 2017 Atlanta Print Biennial. Her work was one of the 73 prints chosen from 787 entries from around the world to represent the current cutting edge of works on paper. 


Mandy is an artist from Easley, South Carolina. Originally a graduate from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marine Science, she received her Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Converse College in May 2015 while working as a photographer/ page designer at a weekly newspaper.  She is currently pursing the Master of Fine Arts degree in Art with an emphasis in printmaking at Clemson University.
 

Ferguson’s work has recently shown at the Bite, Scratch, Expose: New Printmaking exhibit at the Morean Arts Center in Saint Petersburg, Florida, the Southern Graphics Council International member portfolio exchange, “Expectation of Privacy,” which displayed in Knoxville, Tennessee and Signs of the Times Contemporary Broadside Juried Exhibition at the Flakoll Gallery in Fargo, North Dakota. She has also received recognition for her prints by the
Spartanburg County Library College Invitational Art Exhibition and Creative Quarterly: Journal of Art and Design. In addition, her photojournalism has garnered several awards through the South Carolina Press Association’s annual

Her eclectic interest in the visual arts is realized through her prints, which combine photographs, drawings, printmaking and sculptural elements into works that explore technological dependency and loss of identity.
