Happy Friday everyone! Hopefully everyone is finding ways to be productive and stay calm whilst preparing for finals! (Did you read my post about stress managing tips?)
This past Tuesday and Wednesday was the annual Art Now event in the Reilly Room. Art Now is the art showcase that displays the work from the art classes throughout the semester. Since I am an Art + Design major, I featured my work from my drawing class in the show.
The show was absolutely fabulous! I was so excited to see the work from artists other than the lovely work I see during class. There were a lot of interactive pieces, which was super fun. One of my favorite interactive pieces was a chalk board in which people wrote things that they want to do before they graduate. It was really exciting to watch the viewers interacting with the artwork. My favorite thing on the board was a student’s desire to join a twerk team. To whomever wrote that: I will gladly join you!!
My favorite piece in the show was a portrait of Leonardo DiCaprio done by Shelia Tomasbi. I just can’t get over how smooth his face is and how the smolder in Leo’s eyes has been captured to perfection. This picture is truly glorious!
If you didn’t get a chance to make it to Art Now this week, do not fret! There will be another one next semester! Have a lovely and productive weekend, good luck on finals, and thanks for reading
P.S. First Fridays start today! I am showing two pieces at the Harrison Center this evening, so if anyone is interested in viewing some artwork, be sure to check out the various galleries opened tonight!
