Opening: Friday, April 5
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
I have two artworks in the above mentioned show! I'm pretty excited. I was in this show while I was a student at Amarillo College (AC). Now I am a student at WT (West Texas A&M University), so it will be interesting to have been on both sides.
There is some really amazing work going in to this show and I know how hard all the students have worked. Go out and support us by attending!
I will be taking $5 so I can finally try out the Amarillo Museum of Art's Art-O-Mat machine -- it is a refurbished cigarette dispenser that has been altered to dispense original works of art instead! I will let you know if it makes it to my list of awesome date ideas :)
To learn more about Art-O-Mat, visit their website. I think once I get my classroom, my students and I will look into becoming contributing artists :)
Now I will leave you with process photos for my work that made it into the show :)
(painting clouds on "Soaring High")
(before and after Raku firing ceramic sculpture "Chance Encounter")
I hope you make it out if you're in the area to see my art up close and finished! If you're in Amarillo, don't worry, I will eventually take high-res photos to post online.
