Library Show

I went over to the library today before my morning class to take a look at the library exhibition that was hung this past weekend. I took pictures of my collage in the show, the one I did of my roomie. It was in the lounge area, and if you look carefully, you can see the feet of someone taking a nap on one of the couches.

Senior Thesis Exhibition

This past Sunday was the opening reception for the first senior thesis exhibition. If you click here you can see the posting I did on our school's website to advertise the exhibition. It will be open until April 30th, when the work will be taken down to make room for the other half of the seniors as they hold their exhibition. Here are pictures of all the artwork that was on display, along with the six framed collages of mine that I put up:

Collage of the Roomie

I completed a collage of my roommate--I had to make a new one for an upcoming exhibition that a couple of students are holding in the library during our student research day. All I need to do now is get some better pictures of it, frame it, and then it'll be ready to hang.

Smithsonian Exhibition Extended

The exhibition at the Smithsonian's Ripley Center, "Artists at Work," has extended the time for the show. The work will be up until July 27th, 2008. So if you won't be able to make it to the exhibition in the spring, you should definitely check it out in the summer.

Senior Show Gallery Space

I went to check out the gallery space for the "All Senior Show," which is located directly on campus in the Isabella Cannon Room. My senior thesis exhibition will be in the art department though, in a gallery that is a lot smaller than this one. Also, this week will involve a lot of intense matting for my senior thesis pieces. I'm officially graduating with an art degree, and now I just have to go through the hectic week before the opening reception. Here are a few pictures of the show:

Preparing for my Last Meeting


This Friday will be my last senior thesis meeting. All weekend I've been working on the finishing touches for my pieces so I'll have enough time to work on a couple of major papers that are due next week. Goodness, so much to do. I'll probably work on these a tiny bit more, but for the most part, I'm done.

All Senior Art Show

This week one of my professors let all the seniors know that we have an "All Senior Art Show" coming up. We have to submit a work of art by next week. Also, the piece can't be from our senior thesis...it can be an extension of our senior thesis or something else we've done this year. Unfortunately I took all my artwork back home a few weeks ago, so I had to decide whether or not to go home this weekend or make a new work of art. I decided to make a new work.
This is the finished collage that will be up--it's supposed to be a self-portrait but it doesn't look too much like me. I decided to do a "half-finished" piece, so that you can see a bit of the process involved with my collages. I'll take pictures once it's up in the gallery space.
