The Gallery U

A few months ago, I was invited by a colleague to participate in a web-based internship. The newly-launched site is called The Gallery U and its purpose is to feature the work of college artists around the country and serve as a platform for artists to talk about art and the things that are influencing and inspiring their work.

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 1.38.56 PM

I am one of 19 interns this semester and my job is to post new work (plus a brief description) every week for fifteen weeks. The site officially went live this week and each of the interns was introduced through self-portrait posts. My posts will go up every Friday and you can see my first post here.

Although I’m already very busy, this internship is an opportunity for me to connect with other artists and it will also provide an extra dose of pressure when it comes to producing work consistently. As I mentioned in a recent post on here, one of my goals this semester is to produce a lot of work.

Throughout the internship, all of the interns will be competing for a feature in V23, a New York-based blog which showcases the music, creative writing, photography, and art of young adults. If you like what you see and read every week, you can increase my chances of winning by clicking the little heart at the top of each article.

Diabetic Living: Diabetes Art Day

I have some exciting news! But first, some background info. Many of you may have been around for at least one of the many times I’ve mentioned Diabetes Art Day. For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, Diabetes Art Day was created by art therapist and diabetes blogger Lee Ann Thill three years ago. I was a sophomore in college at the time, and I heard about the event from my sister Sysy who is also a diabetes blogger. On Diabetes Art Day, people of all ages and skill levels can submit artwork about diabetes to an online gallery for anyone to view. I participated, and my sister also shared my work on her blog. The response was awesome! I had hardly ever made artwork about diabetes, but after participating in the first Diabetes Art Day, I sort of felt a calling to do it. It has quickly evolved into an effort to raise awareness and now I have a fairly large body of work that illustrates my life with diabetes.

Anyway, onto the exciting news! Earlier this year, Lee Ann mentioned on Facebook that the magazine Diabetic Living was going to do a story on Diabetes Art Day and they needed past participants to send in images of their work for the article. My painting from the first Diabetes Art Day was one of the pieces chosen to be featured in the article. I was contacted and interviewed via email by the author, Martha Miller Johnson in early June.

The Winter 2013 edition of the magazine just hit the stands and I’m happy to share part of the article with you :]

A huge thank you to writer, Martha Johnson, and to Lee Ann for creating this awesome event! Here is a link to Lee Ann’s blog: The Butter Compartment. The next Diabetes Art Day takes place on February 3, 2014 :]
