I am pretty excited to be sharing these photos with you!! They are of my senior exit portfolio which is on display in a brand spanking new gallery space in our arts annex. Emily and I are the first to put our work on display and it will be up the entire week :) I am tickled from head to toesies!! It was a crap shoot monday morning trying to get in touch with the gallery director on campus to coordinate display furniture... which reminds me of other good news!!!!!
the student show was jurried last week and jared and I both got ceramics pieces in! yey! it was a lot more competitive this year with almost 300 students entering, but the show is packed full of quality work. and on the DL jared sold his raku platter before the show was up for 30 min!! does that mean the dean purchased it!?!? we are excited for the awards ceremony ;)
this show being up also meant a shortage of stands for emily and i... but it worked out great. we picked up the leftovers, gave them a new paint job, and borrowed a 14 ft ladder to adjust lighting in the vaulted gallery space. PFHEW it was a job and a half getting everything set to go, but she is up and running! flyers are out and we are having an opening reception tomorrow at 4p.m. :) snacks, good company, and cool pots will be provided!!

ugly sweater mugs on doily coasters
with all of this going up it took my mind off of final papers, homework, getting ready for the sale, and figuring out where life is going to take us after graduation!! haha back to the stress and craziness... but not until after our reception, life is too good to not stop and take a moment to celebrate, and be happy :)
and some shots from our weekend being busy in the studio...
It has been a long day and i am feeling oh so so ready for bed... off to dreamland ;)
goodnight and go NUGGETS!! beat those suns!
hugs and loves ox
