As my graduation is approaching, I was asked to participate in the Annual Graduating Senior’s art exhibition at my University.
Art works of 8 students were exhibited in an intimate room with a reception held at night. I exhibited my 2016-2017 landscape paintings from Florence, Italy and one of my still life paintings. The setting and the lighting were absolutely glorious. All of the students and their guests were so delighted with the artworks. Few of them I never met during my studies and I was gratified to get to know them during the reception.
Each of the artists gave a little speech describing their work and shared all the learning experiences they received.
I would like to use this opportunity to thank the organizers of this event, faculty co-curators: Terry Boddie and Betty Wilde-Biasiny, and assistant curator: Anita Sillery. Terry Boddie was my mentor during my studies and I want to thank him for his inspiration and support
I also want to thank my last class professor, Raul Manzano for his encouragement and wish him good luck with the workshop in Barcelona.
