Artist interview with Adam Lovitz.

School of Fine Arts Gallery
At the end of their first year in PAFA’s MFA program, Adam Lovitz and Sarah Peoples received the MFA Faculty Exhibition Award. This prestigious prize, awarded by the PAFA Graduate Faculty based on a student’s promise and vision, offers the graduate a rare opportunity to exhibit current work one year after graduation.
While Lovitz is rooted in painting and Peoples in sculpture, Who Say It Be exhibits how both share a playful camaraderie with found materials.
Sarah Peoples (Cert. '00, MFA '12) manipulates found objects; some that are recognizable everyday things, and others that have emerged as products of a specialized need, perhaps its function seeming esoteric or foreign at first glance.
Adam Lovitz (MFA '12) is a Philadelphia native who came to PAFA after completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Delaware. His work in the exhibit is methodically arranged by color, form, and texture within a space to spark ambiguous, yet resonating, affinities with his daily surroundings.
