open studio fun!

Hi!

Please excuse the late posting of this – the event was like a month ago! Whoops! I forgot. Huh. This grad school thing is distracting.

Open Studio was fun. It was kind of weird, and I have had crowd/people anxiety for a long time, so it can get pretty intense now that I’ve moved here and barely hang out with anyone. There were a ton of people there (the eye twitch that I developed as soon as we decided to move finally stopped! I don’t recommend 4 months of eye twitch, fyi, yikes). Anyhow, the studio is usually very quiet, if you saw those photos of the space in earlier posts you can imagine… not so much traffic up there. I usually only see a few people in my program, mostly my studio mate, and professors up there.

Anyhow, it was really fun, through whatever personal weirdness that I have.

Lots of people came, many of my awesome professors were there, and my friends Mark and Lauren came all the way from different parts of Queens. THANK YOU GUYS! It was fun to hang out with people from the school some more too. I feel like I am a little too focused on working sometimes, and don’t get to hang out with many of the awesome people I am going to school with.

It was good, overall. It’s always great to hear feedback from the public. And I met some wonderful people, and I got some ideas. And it was really fun to hear how people interacted and reacted to my new work. It is always good to talk about the work, or try to explain it. It really helps me, it seems like I am always figuring out what the heck I’m doing through talking about it. Grad school is great for that. I am learning a lot about myself and the work I do. Opening up the studio to people I don’t know helps me get a fresh perspective too. I’ve had a great studio visit and some wonderful critiques since then, but that open studio really opened up my studio heart.

Awesome! Love, Katie

one of the guys in my program said he was glad there were girls around to do stuff like this! yay girls!

OPEN STUDIO! Thurs. Nov. 10th (6-9)

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 10th!!!!!!!! Open Studios from 6 to 9 pm! Come see what I’ve been working on!

Come over to the City College of New York! The oldest part of CUNY, on 140th and Convent (half of the studios are on Amsterdam, the other half are on Convent which is right next to Amsterdam).
I’m upstairs in Shepard Hall. Come over! Come over! Room 405. Yes, you can take the elevator, or the stairs. Follow the balloons and the signs!

Come see my art studio, come see what I’ve been making instead of hanging out and doing other NYC things. Among other little snacky things I’ll have my famous cucumber lime water for you to drink.

And all new exciting art for you to see! If you want you can buy some and help me pay for my education. Or just come see my work and talk to me. I’ll be happy to answer questions and talk to you about my work. And you will be able to meet other people in my program.

I hope to see you there!

PS You can take the 1 train to 137th (and Broadway) and walk over to 140th and west to Amsterdam and Convent. Or you can take the A, B, C or D to 145th and head east on 145th then turn (left) down Convent and pass those gorgeous homes and churches and walk until you get there, that stop is about as far as the 1. Here is a map. And a subway map. Hope to see you there!
