Tonight, was the opening of Bodyscapes at the Rowe Side Gallery, UNCC. The show was set up by my fellow artist and friend Madison Westfall. She put a tremendous amount of time and effort in it. I helped a bit too. My thumbs are still sore from pushing push-pins in the wall.
All students were welcome to submit artwork as long it contained a (human) figure. We were overwhelmed by the amount of (great) work that was brought in and unfortunately half of it had to be rejected due to a lack of space.
The show was set up with a cosy corner for sketches, the walls filled from bottom to top; an official looking space for framed work and a wall for something-in-between. Teacher and artist Alessandra Sulpy juried the show and I am very happy to say that my charcoal drawing ‘Butt Dial’ got the second prize!
Coincidentally, a dozen students had their graduating show in the gallery space next to Bodyscapes. I am looking forward to work on big projects like they did and wonder what my art will look like when I graduate.
