Our MFA exhibitions are a highly anticipated annual spring series of solo shows that are presented in fulfillment of the Master of Fine Arts degree at the Welch School of Art & Design at Georgia State University, Atlanta. You will enjoy viewing these shows which are the culmination of three years of research and art making.

Admission is free with timed e-ticket. Masks and a minimum of 6 feet of social distancing are required. A maximum of 10 visitors per 30 minute time slot is permitted in the galleries.

Drew Tetz (b. 1987 in Silver Spring, MD) is an American designer who primarily works with phenakistoscopes, a medium generally considered to be the earliest form of animation. By adapting the pre-cinema format for record players and camera phones, he has unearthed a number of previously undiscovered visual techniques, fusing psychedelic turntablist sensibilities with traditional animation into a strange analog vision of the future.

Drew has worked for musicians including Flying Lotus, Santana, The Grateful Dead, My Morning Jacket, Midland, & Bright Eyes, as well as brands such as Maison Valentino, Vans, the MLB All-Star Game, & Barneys NY. He lives in Atlanta with his wife (Melissa Huang, painter) and his cat (Bonabelle Beans, unemployed.)
