Upcoming Exhibit

What are your plans Friday, 5 February? Come out to Lancaster’s First Friday, specifically come out to Annex 24 Gallery at 24 W Walnut Street. I will have two pieces on exhibit!

PatienceAnnex 24 is holding its 3rd Annual Artist Closet Auction. It is a silent auction that coincides with First Friday. It runs 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. You can bid in person, via Twitter or even on Facebook! The Artist Closet is a great opportunity to acquire paintings, drawings, jewelry or sculptures for a reasonable price. Bids start as low as $10.

My first piece is called Patience. It is a mandala that I did while recovering from a concussion. I found the geometric design of a mandala to be very relaxing.

SkullsThe second is called Skulls. It shows a skull from both a frontal image and from the left side. It is a graphite drawing.

Both pieces are mounted and are framed.

They will be on exhibit, with the rest of the Artist Closet, in the Wowzer Room! The Annex 24 Gallery is located at 24 West Walnut Street, between North Queen and North Market Streets.

PCA&D visit was wonderful

Thank you everyone for the support! The PCAD visit was wonderful. My portfolio reviewer was a lovely gentleman who gave me some awesome insight as to how to make my portfolio bigger and better! He said I had wonderful pieces and have an eye for detail and design! However, we both agreed I needed more color in the portfolio. Time flew by during the review however it really took a little over half and hour.

I also put in an application for Fall of 2018! 😄 Overall the visit was exciting and a tad nerve racking but I walked out with a great memory and spectacular advice.

Portfolio Prep Time

I am nervous and excited about tomorrow’s Open House at the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design! I plan to get there early to schedule a portfolio review. It will be my first and I want to include everything! How can I possibly choose just a handful?

There are drawings that started as bored doodles that turned out to be something. There are school projects (like the one shown here) that are not really my favorite but they show different skills. There are of course my mandalas!
