Opening

I was very pleased with my opening on September 10th. After a lot of hard work of framing, hanging and organizing, I was able to spend some quality time with family and friends. There was a great turn out which was greatly appreciated. Here are a few photos of the actual even and the space that I displayed my work.

Progress III

After my Pecha Kucha I have transitioned into the final stages of the project. I have moved on to finishing up a few paintings such as the  panorama, slaughter house, silo, and an abstract. I also will continue to finish my set of architectural drawings of both the slaughter house and silo. Furthermore, I am beginning to get all the paintings and photographs ready for show in September.

Pecha Kucha

Pecha Kucha

On Monday the 26th I partook in a Pecha Kucha to the board in which I received my grant. For Those unaware of the contents of a Pecha Kucha, it is a type of presentation typically used in the design/creative fields. It is arranged in a 20 seconds/20 slides format. Presenters have 20 seconds to describe each slide, ultimately making for a concise and focussed presentation.

Another aspect of my project that I will include in my final exhibition are portraits of the farmers from Sparrow Farm and Crystal Springs Farm. These are the two farms that I am focusing the majority of my project on. Each farmer has been helpful in regards to farm history and functions. I think it is important to be able to put the face of the farmer(s) with their respective farms.
