A Conference and an Exhibit

Whoo-Hoo! Come this Thursday, I will be Savannah, GA bound.

I’m attending the Georgia Art Education Association Fall Conference in Savannah, GA. I’m very excited because this year I am making two presentations (both about projects I have not written about here, so new to you!), and exhibiting an artwork.

I hope to see you there! If you see me, come up and say, “hello!”
P.S. I’m that tall, six-foot, plus-size lady, rocking short white hair. 🙂


About my artwork:

My artwork, Play Narrative, is on display this week (10/7-10/12) at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) as part of the Georgia Art Education Association Member’s Exhibit (GAEA). 
I handmade the diorama from felt and other found materials. The dimensions of the diorama stage are 16 inches x 18 inches. 
The artwork is interactive, and encourages viewers to touch the pieces.  Viewers are presented with the figures and a multitude of accessories. Viewers are asked to pose the figures, document their poses, and then upload their creations to the social media site of their choice using the hashtag, #playnarrative
I’m soo excited to see what viewers create and/or witness their documented experiences with the artwork.
