Every other year for the past six years, the University of Minnesota art department graduate students organize "NAGAS" (North American Art Survey), a fine art show featuring works by graduate students from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. This year marks the third "NAGAS" exhibition, and it's a wallop of an art show.

This is a highly coveted show for Master's students to be accepted into as it is also carries weight in the art world on a larger scale, leading to greater opportunities for artists' works to be seen by not only other students and alumni, but by professionals in the field as well.

Bartholomew Ryan, Walker Art Center Curatorial Fellow and juror for this year's NAGAS, received over 700 submissions by MFA students. "It felt like a daunting task to begin this jurying process," Ryan says in his juror's statement. "But one of the surprises is how interesting it was, and also how difficult it felt, to choose which works would go through to the exhibition." He had to undoubtedly use a heavy hand, as the show is made up less than 50 works. The result, however, is a finely curated show of visually intriguing paintings, sculptures, and video art.

The "NAGAS" exhibition is free to attend and will be on display through February 16 in the U of M's Katherine E. Nash Gallery, located at 405 21st Avenue South, inside the Regis Center for Art on the West Bank. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
