There’s only a few days left until my MFA Thesis Exhibition opens, and I can’t tell if the past few semesters flew by, or if it’s just me. As I work at warp speed to get everything finished for Saturday, I just have a few more updates to share.
- I did a radio interview for WVIA a few days ago to promote the exhibition: if you know me at all, you know that I HATE public speaking – let’s call it a phobia. I had a stress headache before, during, and after the experience, but I’m glad I got through it.
- I am done assembling the two biggest pieces of my installation (in the studio). Once I move them into the gallery, I’ll feel like 75% of my work is done.
- I still have to cover the large foam form in plaster pins – but I think I finally have enough! With my tweaks to production, I’ve been manufacturing over 100 pins a day for the past few studio days.
- I am so excited to be sharing my work with everyone. Sometimes, it’s easy for me to identify excitement as anxiety/fear/nerves – or the other way around – so this time I choose “excitement.” I’ll be sharing photos of the finished exhibition next week, but I hope you stop by to see the show this Saturday, May 4th from 3 – 5:30 PM!
