Seniors had their first group critiques of the semester last Wednesday with special guests Marcus Cain and Beverly Ahern. Marcus and Beverly critiqued the seniors’ progress on their Elsewhere projects, which are on track to be completed by October 23.

Marcus is a 1998 Graduate from the KCAI painting department, an independent curator, writer, and director of alumni relations and development at KCAI. His works “draw on the form of an iconic portrait head to explore a threshold of mindfulness (with thought landing somewhere between a solid consciousness and liquid subconscious).”

Beverly is also a graduate from KCAI, with a BFA in fiber from the Kansas City Art Institute and a BA in history from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She is “always interested in world events and popular culture, [has] lived in Kansas City, Missouri for many years, and is an active supporter of the city’s contemporary arts community. Her current work in photography is concerned with reflexive responses to ephemeral moments in the landscape.”
