My main goal this semester is to have a successful thesis exhibition and defense right in the middle of February, so I am a month out right now. My exhibition dates are February 17th-21st, with a reception on the last day. Currently that is what I am working towards and solely focused on, finishing up my art pieces, mapping out how they will be displayed and all-around prep for the show/defense. I want to have a total of 10 pieces completed for my show, with the option of leaving one out if I feel it isn’t up to par or just doesn’t work. I am hoping after February I can breathe just a little and make more time for some more exploration of my work and perhaps an experimental piece or two. I would like to produce 4-6 pieces of new work this semester. I am also already looking into job applications, one studio faculty position and a year-long residency, I have a few started and want to continue to look for more opportunities. I am on the tight rope of trying to wrap everything up but still wanting to stay immersed in my studio practice.
