It's all very spontaneous, playing with various papers, printed paper imagery, drawing on tea bags, using printed abaca paper to emulate tea bags, stamping patterns and texture and using shiva paint sticks with freezer paper and stencils.
It's always fun to see everyone look at the work and see the different things other students did.
On preview night, the show opens to IQA members and then to the public. This is a great time to see the exhibits before the crowds roll in, catch up with friends and stop by the vendors.
the Cicada house, in Tactile Architecture and it was rejected, so it's very nice to see a bigger and more elaborate project grow out of that initial art piece.
My house in this exhibit is one of the smaller ones in the center.
When I went by the Between the Spaces exhibit I ran into several friends
|Kathy York, Andrea Brokenshire and Carol Soderlund|
|Jamie Fingal, Rachel Parris, Frances Alford, Me and Leslie Jenison|
We have a similar photo of all of us sitting on the floor of the convention center from several years ago, it's nice to be consistent. At the time I didn't know why we were lifting our arms, but then I found out we were doing half of Rachels "too much information" signal she gives us at dinner sometimes. You see, Rachel is from the south and in her neck of the woods, I guess there are some things you don't discuss at the dinner table, lol.

One of the rituals at dinner is hanging spoons from our noses at some point during the evening.
