    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

Otis College of Art and Design will showcase work by emerging talent in Graduate Fine Art and Public Practice at the annual Open Studios, open to the public on April 13, 2014, from 2-5 pm at 10455 Jefferson Boulevard in Culver City. More than thirty students will exhibit their work in individual studios, project spaces and group galleries. The 2014 Otis/Sandberg residency exchange fellow, Lithuanian artist Jurgis Paskevicius, and French visiting artist Laure Vigna will show their work.

Participating MFA students in Fine Arts and Public Practice: Victor Albarracin, Kristy Baltezore, Bryan Bankston, Lili Bernard, Claudia Borgna, Estephany Campos, Sean Cully, Andrew K. Currey, Janet E. Dandridge, Jamie Grace Dabis, David Del Francia, Daniel French, Noé Gaytån, Marcela Gottardo, Nicola Goode, Nathan Bulick, Tonya Ingram, Marissa Johnen, Tracee Johnson, Soo Yun Jun, Dahee (Angie) Kim, Katie Loughmiller, Allison McGrew, Mario Mesquita, Melany Meza-Dierks, Jurgis Paskevicius, Allison Peck, Sweet Samson, Yasmin Than, Delia Perez-Salinas Tijerina, Laure Vigna, Rachel Wolfe, and Carol Zou.

Otis College of Art and Design’s graduate studios are located in Culver City, Los Angeles’ premier arts district. The space at 10455 Jefferson Boulevard includes artists’ studios, administrative offices, a computer lab, and two large public spaces, which host artists in residence, public exhibitions and lectures, and open studio events. The Culver City Art District boasts over 30 galleries exhibiting new and distinguished artists.

Public Practice, under the leadership of Suzanne Lacy, renowned artist, educator, theorist of socially engaged public art and author, prepares students to re-invent traditional media-specific ways of thinking about art making. Los Angeles - global center of public practices by artists and collaborative groups - is its dynamic setting. Students engage this vast human and spatial geography as emerging professionals. Entering students design a unique educational plan to fit their interests, in both community and studio contexts. Public practice - also called participatory art, community art, public art, situational art or social sculpture - consists of a variety of media including video, performance, drawing, photography, sculpture and web-based projects.

Graduate Fine Arts students develop a personal vision that has been filtered through history, gender, sexuality, culture, and politics. Graduate Fine Arts students acquire the necessary technical and theoretical resources to develop an understanding of the demands of a professional practice. The program promotes strong interaction and critical dialogue among all participants, encouraging students to converse in the language of art. Students produce work that reflects their ideas, needs and ambitions, as well as the challenges of the artistic environment and contemporary issues and concerns. Among MFA alumni are Alison Saar, Masami Teraoka, Kent Twitchell, and Bruce Yonemoto.
