August 1st- 4th
Meghan: It was my first time and I was really blown away. The scale and volume of work was a lot to absorb! I noticed a trend in a lot of abstract paintings, an mixed media pieces with some kind of digital component, and lots of bright (sometimes 90's neon) colors. I was particularly impressed with the glass work that surprised me in the form of miniature landscapes to full scale dresses. I thought a lot of the abstract paintings lacked time and layers. It seems like a misconception that doing abstract imagery means that you can do a lot of random quick mark-making without putting in the necessary build up of the surface. What a cool opportunity to have so many different pieces of art in the same space at once!
