Throughout the academic year art students have been learning new skills, working through ideas, and developing their work. Summer Break celebrates the progress MCC art students have made. Summer is a time when students and faculty alike focus on art making and prepare to come back to the fast-paced studio environment where creativity and critique develop and stretch artists.

Painting by Dominique SandersBREAKER, BREAKER is the CB (Citizens Band) slang that announces one's intention to "break" into a conversation or "break" the silence. MCC painting students Haley Creager, Kendall Johnson, Dominique Sanders, Gloria Stewart, and Mary Swenson, all, in their own way, are attempting to break into the conversation of contemporary painting. BREAKER, BREAKER represents a small survey of these artists' recent efforts.
