Hey! If you live in the Roanoke, Virginia area, here’s something you can do this week. The Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute is hosting their Spring 2014 Exhibition and the opening reception is this Thursday April 17th from 5:30-7:30pm. The theme of this show is “The Art of Science.” Both scientists and artists have contributed work and it’s sure to be an amazing collection. I have three oil paintings in the show and they are all for sale. Come check it out! Here is a link to the event: VTC Spring 2014 Exhibition
Hey guys! I have two exciting things to talk about. I mentioned both of these things in my last post, and as promised, I’m here to give you more info.
First of all, I finally opened my Etsy shop! I spent many, many hours working on things to make it as “official” as possible. I listed several items that I’ve had done for months now, but I also created a collection of pieces just for the opening (The Dragonfruit Collection if you want to check it out). I also came up with a logo design and hand-printed it onto tags for the clothing. My sisters and I even modeled the clothes, which was really fun :] Right now I just have clothing (and one tote bag) for sale, but I’ll be putting up small drawings and paintings in the near future.
You can check out all the excitement HERE
My second announcement is that I’m having an art show in August in downtown Harrisonburg, Virginia. My work will be displayed in Larkin Arts for the whole month of August. Larkin Arts is a really cute school/store/gallery/studio that just opened last year. I’m so excited to show my work there. The opening reception will take place on Friday August 2nd from 5-8pm and the work will be on display until Tuesday September 3rd. The gallery hours are 11am-7pm Mon-Sat (they’re closed on Sundays).
The work that I’ll be showing is once again a collection of dress pieces that reflect my life with Type 1 Diabetes. Some of the pieces were included in my last show, but I’ve also been working on new things since then. If you’re in the area, I hope you can make it! I’ll be there for the duration of the opening reception.
Bonus announcement: I’m going to be in another magazine! More info on that later :] Have a great day!
Last semester, in my Drawing II class, one of our assignments was to draw on a 3d object and take photos of it in different environments. After lots of thought and still unsure of what would be successful, I decided to buy a fairly large glass cylinder and, using a black sharpie, I drew a small man in a climbing position. I then proceeded to take my camera, hold the glass in front of me in different environments and make it look like the tiny man was actually climbing up on things. The final result was this collection of humorous pictures! Enjoy :]
