No Wednesday class tomorrow! But use this time wisely…

Hi all,

we are going to have tomorrow be a studio work day. We will NOT be meeting for our regular Wednesday class, BUT we do expect you to use this time as a space to work on your projects for your studio classes.

I (Kat) still need to meet with 5-6 of you re:  ritual projects. I will be in the studios from 10-11 to speak with you. You know who you are so please come and speak with me.

Sara is holding office hours from 2-4:30 at the Jet.

“Office” Hours- next week

A reminder that Sara and I are holding office hours at the Jet next week. Please come talk to us – especially if you are having attendance concerns. We can use this time to figure out ways to help.  Coffee/Tea on us. Cheers!

Kat: Monday the 13th from 11:15-1:30

Sara: Wednesday the 15th from 2-4:30

Art events today

Glass visiting artist Anna Mlasowsky will give a talk on her work today at 4:30 in Binns-Merrill room C. Mlasowsky works with glass as installation and performance- below is an image of one of her videos currently on view at the Corning Museum of Art.

Also today at noon in in the Nevins Theater is a talk from Seattle-based Curator, Miranda Metcalf, on effective strategies for gallery submissions.  How do you approach a gallery? What images do you need? What can you do to be prepared? This will be a good conversation about preparedness, professionalism and learning how to get your work out in the world.

Hope you can make both or either of these events!
