I am definitely enjoying not having to rush home from school to finish stuff for my show. I can come home, sit back, relax, and do what I want to do. No more deadlines. Ah! It feels awesome. I am not going to do anything this summer except take time for myself and rejuvenate for grad school in the fall.
If you have a couple of minutes, hop on over to my friend Molly Feudale's website. She is an amazing weaver and does great things with solvy stabilizer.
Here are some more pictures from the highlights of my reception:
I just wanted to say "thank you" to everyone who came out to support Lindsay and I at our reception last night. I really appreciate your support. If you missed the reception, the show will be up through Saturday, April 16. If you can't get there, I took a couple of pictures before the reception started last night. All of my work in the show can be seen under the section 'Portfolio'.
Once I get the pictures from my mother, I will gladly upload them!
I am sorry that it has been so long since I last posted, but I have been super buy with my show trying to complete all those little finishings that needed to be done. I did finish "Gallon Jug" and all of my pieces mounted on stretchers were taken apart and got a new piece of cloth over a piece of quilt batting. I finished my last piece yesterday. I have always been super prepared for my show, and never thought that I would be that person working down to the wire. I have learned that no matter how prepared you are, if you want it to be a good show, you will be working until the last minute.
I install my show today at 1 p.m. It is kind of surreal. This is the one thing that has been looming over my head since I started art school. It is what I have been working towards diligently for four years. Now that it is time for my show to go up, I feel a mixture of emotions. I am happy that it is over, sad that I have nothing to do until graduate school starts in the fall, anxious about how people will receive my show, mad that I never finished "Canopy", and thankful that I have had more support than I deserve from wonderful friends and professors.
I will take pictures of the show and post them tomorrow. I would post them today, but I do not want to ruin it for all the people that have never seen my work en masse. If you are in the Greenville, NC area and would like to come, my opening reception is tomorrow from 1:30 - 4 P.M. at the Greenville Museum of Art. There will be free food and lots of wonderful people not to mention GREAT art by myself and my good friend Lindsay Dieckmann.
I will also post some pictures of the reception tomorrow night and will hopefully get to upload pictures of "Specimens" and "Gallon Jug" to my portfolio.
