Studio Arts Show

 It's the end of the year, and that means that the Studio Arts majors are putting on a show...  well not a performance but an exhibit.  A lot of friends of mine had pieces in the show, which made it all the more exciting.
These two lovelies that I'm standing with are Grace and Ellyn.  We are standing in front of one of Grace's pieces which is made from plaster casts of breasts (yes, that's right) and panty hose.  Is that what one calls it?  Panty Hose?  Or tights.... you get the point.

 I was also in the show.  My piece, since I'm not a senior yet (It's usually a show for seniors unless you get choses) was chosen by a professor from one of my classes.  They are digital prints and all three are from a series titled Exo.  The one on the left is my grandfather's arm, the one in the middle is a ribcage, and the one on the right is my grandfather's hand.  You can't imagine how proud he was to know that his modeling skills payed off for me.
This is Miss Carolyn and she has some of my favorite outfits.  I love the cosmic tights she's wearing, and I told her that the beret makes her look Parisian.  Usually she's sporting some sort of Anna Sui, which makes me a big fan.

 Oh, Benjy.  How I love this white suit.  He's definitely always looking dapper but today was extra special.  The nose ring was the final touch on this edgy, yet so sophisticated, outfit.

 This is Clay, who I keep wanting to feature on here but never get to.  He is notorious for his amazing socks and uniquely printed pants, but in this post all the attention goes to the shirt.  I'm still unsure about what exactly those little orbs are, but I love it anyways.  He is also wearing his dad's Rooster Tie.

 Both of these (above and below) are cutouts done by my hero, Kimmie.  I do have an obsession with papercutouts, which is why I'm amazed with each of these.  This one below is made from several layers of cut paper.  I can't imagine how long it took but it was worth it.

i went to the show just to kill some time, and as i walked through it i was mad at myself for not going there purposely, haha! I was SO impressed with everyone's work! I'm a fan of the cut-outs too.
