Morehead State University graduate student Megan Pater (Class of 2020) will present her Master of Arts exhibit, “The Mind and the Land,” later this month. 

The exhibit’s opening reception is from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 29, at the Golding-Yang Art Gallery in the Claypool Young Art Building. The exhibition will be on display from Nov. 29 through Friday, Dec. 10. 

Pater earned a Bachelor of Arts in Convergent Media with a minor in photography from MSU in 2020. She is a graduate assistant graduate with the Department of Art and Design while completing her master’s degree in studio art. 

All of the pieces in the show are photopolymer gravures, a photographic printmaking process. The body of work centers around the idea of the connection that the human mind has with landscapes. 

“I have worked hard towards this body of work, and am grateful I have great family, friends and mentors that will be there to celebrate that with me at the opening reception,” Pater said. “I hope that any person that steps into the gallery to see my exhibition comes away with new philosophical ideals that allows them to explore the idea of the connection between the mind and the land."

The Golding-Yang Art Gallery, located within the Claypool-Young Art Building, is a pivotal educational and cultural component of the Department of Art and Design, the Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the MSU campus and the community at large.
