Perception Through Expression: A Gallery Show

My semester at Parsons is over and I've begun work, but I can't seem to forget the end of the year festivities that took place.
My Perception Drawing class, taught by Kate Teale, put together our very own gallery show in her Long Island City gallery.  Each of my peers applied for a position to contribute to the show; from catalog designers, to event organizers, to PR people every detail was covered.  I curated the show with another student and and helped install the show.  Two of my classmates and I enjoyed the challenge of hanging the show; before hanging an opening myself I had never really appreciated the art of hanging a gallery show.  It was a wonderful experience and a great night!  

Two of my acrylic portraits made it in, Ilona and Marilyn, a in-class model.   Hope you enjoy a peek into our pop up gallery show "Perception Through Expression" below!

Don't MIS the art around you! 

Visiting galleries, and seeing how others express themselves always provides me with a new perspective!
