The University of New Orleans St. Claude Gallery, an off-campus gallery that features the work of University graduate students and visiting artists, hosts "Ritual Process," a Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibition for sculptor Kevin Baer.

The exhibition runs from April 13 through May 4 at the gallery, located at 2429 St. Claude Ave. Regular gallery hours are 12 to 5 p.m., Fridays through Sundays. The gallery will host an opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, April 13. All are invited to attend.

In this exhibition, Baer considers themes of time, death and decay through his use of installation and sculpture, said Kathy Rodriguez, who is director of the UNO St. Claude Gallery, as well as a research specialist and fine arts instructor at the University. "He intends his use of minimal materials, including sugar, ink, hair and wood and geometric forms to communicate about the commonality of these themes in humanity."

Baer is a graduate student in the UNO Department of Fine Arts, which has received full accreditation by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. A branch of the University's College of Liberal Arts, the UNO Fine Arts Department offers a Master of Fine Arts degree in studio art.
