A Head With No Legs

5 Dec

It is odd to not have the obligation of attending dance rehearsal any longer. “Stool Dance”, choreographed by Laura Smith and myself was performed Friday evening in the CD Smith theater as a one night showing. The piece was my last duet as an AU student and will be integrated with the Six and Four Articulations Performance Tour for summer 2012. If you are interested in supporting an eager group actively involved in the performing arts check out our kickstarter page in the link below. The tour is across the U.S. so if we make it out your way come see us!

Today marks the 1st day of setup for the 2011 December BFA Thesis Exhibition. The opening and reception is taking place Saturday December 10th from 4-7pm in the Robert C. Turner Gallery.

Six senior undergrad artists will be showing their work in a variety of mediums including glass, ceramics, painting, print-making and video. I am currently building a table that will showcase a cedar stereoscope and several stereo images. All show prints have been finished and are ready to be flattened. Yesterday evening I added a wash of India ink over the show edition of a large scale exotic bird etching. Many happenings prior to the show involve preparing food, creating a pricing book, printing work descriptions and attending three Art History classes.

Yesterday some of the Universities art students organized a “stuff swap” on campus that was quite successful. Those who participated dropped off used clothing and other items in exchange for anything appealing that was previously left. Giving up two pairs of old pants for a funky little winter vest was the highlight of my exchange. After the swap I met up with a friend who attends Alfred State and danced for an hour.

At noon on the Sunday following senior shows is the II annual Lumberjack Breakfast. Friends have been invited to our home to share breakfast foods potluck style and maybe sport some beards and a flannel along the way. It should be an enjoyable way to wrap up the semester.
