No Division Show

Last weekend really was amazing. Along with our Senior Show, Dick and I were both in a local exhibition with other Salisbury artists and the guys from the No Division Design Syndicate. It was an amazing time and I made this new piece just for it! It's my self portrait.

Dick helped Tim Fields (the awesome guy who made this happen and also is a glass blower with and etsy shop! http://timfieldsglass.etsy.com) with hanging the show. Here's our room in progress:

The framed print all the way to the left that's terribly cut off is Dick's wood cut of Mickey in a hangman's noose. The prints on the floor are a couple mine that weren't hung yet.

Casey came to the show, and apparently we were very concerned with something happening over there.

Meeee! This one is about half the size of the piece in the Senior Show. The lighting wasn't great, just fluorescents that really put a glare on the darkest parts.

I brought my buttons on a whim, not really expecting to get anything out of it, but they went like crazy! Trevor is the shit and put his on right quick. I love when awesome people like my stuff.

JP (far left) is part of No Division and had tons of his prints up for display and for sale. He's amazing. Look at everything he makes! He's got an Etsy Shop, too. It was a great night of art, music and friends. I could make a habit of this.

Senior Art Show

So I've been away because of school and the Christmas rush, but I'm bored in Illustration class and itching to blog. Lots of things have been going on, most importantly, the passing of my Grandmother. She was my hero. I have been taking it really hard and it took a week for me to stop crying every day. You'd know why if you had known her. But I know that she loved me and was proud of me, and I can't ask for anything better than that.

Also, my senior year is coming to an end and I had my Senior Art Show. The show had been up for a while and we just had the closing reception on Friday. I had 3 pieces in the show, but this is my crowning glory:

It's a piece I did from a photo I took of Dick. He's the best and I'm so glad I have this awesome piece of him! I made it all from 1" buttons. It's still up in the gallery for the BFA show, so I'll get some more picture of it so I can show the detail. I was so happy that they were able to put it on the back wall in the center so you can really get the impact of it from far away.

I won the Best Graphic Design for my graduating class & Dick won People's Choice! His piece is too phenomenal to talk about without pictures...he had the whole Electronic Gallery to himself. I'll post about that one when I get the pics! Here's some more fun stuff from the show!

Casey Berry won the President's Choice award! We were all winners that night ^_^

My friend Meredith came to seeeeee! I love her (and her coat).

One of the teachers was all up on it.

Accepting the award. Which was a really terribly designed certificate...but I still won!

With our said certificates...and my sister's bunny ears ^_^

More photos from the weekend later. We were in another show on Saturday with the No Division artists!
