Hint at the final lace sculpture titled: Strength
Hint at the final clay sculpture titled: Delicate
With an hour to spare I placed the last lace brick on the first of two of my BFA Diploma Works project sculptures; I also turned in both copies of the binder for my sculptures titled Delicate Strength on a chair next to the lace bricks. Twenty minutes later I hung the last of my clay forms for the mock-up of my second sculpture which will not be fully hung till the pieces are in the gallery.
It is such a relief to have finished these pieces after many doubts (by others and myself at some points), knowing that my sketches and ideas, which began over 6 months ago are standing right before me, are completely possible.
Myself and 18 fellow Finlandia University BFA graduates will begin hanging our Diploma works projects in the gallery space on Friday. Some only have to hang one board or a few images, but others, including myself, will be in the gallery for hours perfecting the placement of our work.
The opening for our show is Saturday, April 30, 2011 from 7-830pm at the Finnish American Heritage Center 435 Quincy St., Hancock, MI 49930. Please come if you are able!
