Wanderlust is the latest group art show to come to the Masters of Fine Arts Gallery. The name and concept for the show stem from the artists finding their place in the world. The featured artists in the gallery are from the graduate seminar class in the art department at Chico State.

Acacia Blue Yashinsky was one of the artists who showed off her work in the gallery. Yashinsky is on the cusp of graduating and has felt an obsession with what happens next. This is reflected in her piece “Movin’ On.”

“I’m about to graduate and that’s having me obsessing over what happens next and like where to go next, so this came very much out of that,” Yashisky said.

Each package in her art piece features assorted maps from an old atlas, from the ’60s—you grab the included art and let fate decide where you go.

Another student artist, Hope Blackwell, displayed an art installation that features two video pieces and a final painting called “Purging.”

“It’s a very intimate experience—I have it set up to where you push play yourself, you put on a pair of headphones and you watch this performance,” Blackwell said.

Blackwell describes the piece being about expressing things and letting them go. The first of the two videos features Blackwell painting on a white canvas with black paint while listening to “Hostage” by Billie Eilish. The second video features him painting over that with white paint while listing to “When’s the party,” also by Billie Eilish. The end result is the painting featured in the gallery.

“I really allowed myself to not really think about the movement I was going to do and just allow my instinct and the music and my filings to really guide my hand across the canvas,” Blackwell said.

Yashinsky and Blackwell, along with three other featured artists, had their artwork featured at the Masters of Fine Arts Gallery until Sunday, Dec 2. Check back into the gallery again for the next display of work from local artists.
