Graduation Day!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. The last few weeks have been a countdown to graduation. I was busy finishing the convocation shawl for ACAD’s president, Dr. Doz; putting the finishing touches on my grad show work; organizing the massive pile of stuff that was emptied from my studio at school; and sewing up a dress to wear to the grad show. Well, it’s all said and done now, and graduation day has already come and gone. It’s hard to believe that my four years of ACAD are in the past.

I was a little uncertain about how I was going to install my work for the show. I did a little trial run in the entrance to my place, hanging it up with packing tape and several strings. But, it worked out. I got the space I had requested, and the trial run helped make the installation go pretty smooth.

ACAD’s grad show is on until May 28.

    Looks great! Congratulations!

    I think it’s important to remember right now, that while it is the end of ACAD, it’s the beginning of new things! And we’re all still here, aren’t we? 😛

    Now, on to the next adventure!
