i mentioned some time ago that i was accepted into tcnj's art alumni show (juror by dan cameron.) the show has 57 works by
35 artists, with alumni going back as far as a graduate of '72. my very first one-eyed girl sculpture was accepted, though some might remember her wretched the pig-hoof hands (slightly seen in these photos), as a result of a deadline that gave little time to perfect her little hands. they were an embarrassment, so i went and redid them, and though they still need a little more work, they look a ton better, just in time for tcnj.
the show is already open, but the reception is friday, oct 1 at 5:30-8pm, in conjunction with a dedication ceremony for the new building and other homecoming weekend funsies. the new art building is beautiful and i'm excited to have the opportunity to display in their space. i did have a love/hate relationship with their crappy old building, a building i still feel a little homesick for sometimes. but as much as i loved my time there, i would have killed to work and live in their new art building. if only i were 6 years younger..
