I’m packing my bags and heading to San Francisco this week — for the Botanicals Exhibition at the Bedford Gallery!! Meanwhile, there’s another exciting opening much closer to home. VCU School of the Arts has acquired a new building over the last year, appropriately named, The Depot. The Depot is a flexible and collaborative space including a student gallery. I will be apart of their first alumni art exhibition “The Golden Standard: Graduates of the Last Decade” that will run from July 10 – August 30th. The exhibit will featured artwork from 25 VCU Arts Alumni in a variety of mediums that all graduated between 2004-2014. There is a soft opening on Friday July 10th from 5-7, but the much larger reception will occur Friday August 28th!! Mark your calendar!!
I will four pieces in this show — including my hay collar sculpture and 3 photographic prints. Ironically enough, I was chosen my freshman year to be apart of a group sculpture exhibit (10 of us – out of the entire foundation program), but I was too stubborn to recreate the piece for the show in the Summer of 2005. This feels like a little bit of redemption. 10 years later…I have come full circle — and it feels good.
