Cal State San Bernardino graduate student Alexander Dixon is set to showcase his Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibition, “The Space Between,” at the university’s Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art’s Dutton Family Gallery.
The exhibition will run from Nov. 27 to Dec. 2, featuring a series of interactive glass artworks centered around perception and reality. A reception is scheduled for Nov. 30, from 4-6 p.m.
Leveraging his graphic design background, Dixon skillfully merges graphic design principles with glass sculpture to highlight the impact of our surroundings on our perception.
Dixon earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from California State University, Fullerton in 2020. While studying graphic design, he discovered his passion for glassblowing. Thanks to multiple scholarships, he pursued his Master of Fine Arts degree, dedicating his time to bridging these two distinct artistic mediums.
