unfailingly able to make me smile:

(makes me want to learn how to tap dance)

pictures from the opening of my MFA thesis exhibition

My thesis show was held in an old ballroom at the Elk's Lodge in Hornell, NY. Everyone was given an 'Alicia mask' at the door, which made for an interesting social atmosphere. It felt more like a party than a gallery opening, and I couldn't have been happier...

images of the work in my MFA thesis exhibition

The white neon equations were installed in the stairwell leading up the 3rd floor of the Elk's Lodge. The last equation (in red neon) and 3 large-scale sculptures were installed in the ballroom. More information on each individual piece can be found on my website

(I'm not sure exactly how it works, but I like to imagine the penny spins and spins and spins and never falls over)

I've been avoiding anything remotely resembling a responsibility since my thesis show, including this blog, but I think I'm finally on my way back to feeling normal. I have been concerning myself with everything summer... traveling, laying in the grass, reading, repotting my plants, going for long walks, playing the ukulele, drawing in my sketchbook... Alfred feels completely deserted and totally magical.

I will post pictures of my show very soon. It was a huge success... I am now a master!
