“What are you going to do with that?”  Nearly everyone who has made the decision to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree has fielded such a question, often couched in a tone of deep concern, from friends, family and well-wishers alike.  With a dearth of “real world” job positions for artists per se, is a BFA education more of a liability than an asset?  What prospects face BFA students after graduation?  With these questions in mind, this exhibition, featuring a selection of current BFA students from both the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina. and a panel discussion held in the gallery on February 28th were assembled to investigate the current state of BFA programs in Saskatchewan.  A special thanks to all of the students who submitted to this exhibition and the faculty at both universities who helped organize studio visits and participated in the panel discussion.
