July News & Updates

The last two months have been a whirlwind.  From the end of the semester on May 11th to interviewing for a full time job in Knoxville, then interviewing again in June... somehow I find myself in July. 

I am thrilled to announce that I will be exhibiting a new photograph at Woman Made Gallery in the exhibition Radiance July 10 - August 20.  The opening reception is July 10th from 6-9 pm.  Hope you will stop by!  Check the site for more info: womanmade.org

 My students: Patti Mendoza, Lynn Anderson, Deb Wesley, Ethan Chivari, JoAnn Hartley, and Matt Levins

I am so proud of the students from my Spring 2015 Extended Photographic Project class who are exhibiting their works at Wings Student Art Gallery at College of Dupage through July 31.  We had a wonderfully small class who worked well together; brainstorming ideas for exhibition spaces, as well as unifying themes in their work, and exhibition titles.  And we utilized class time to draft artist statements, bios, and text for the exhibition proposal.  Best of all, the proposal drafted by the students was selected for exhibition! What a great semester!

So, what do I do now?  Well, I am still waiting to hear about the job in Knoxville, so I might be moving... ?  Or not?  But I am trying not to focus on that too much until I hear something. 

Goals for July are:  1) continue photographing every day  2)  look into more exhibition opportunities for fall 3) set up a group critique with friends AND 4) RELAX! This is the calm before the storm of a busy fall semester either way!
