Alchemists of Art

These images (unfortunately) don't do any justice to seeing these works up close and in person. Yet driving all the way to Western to see the show is probably out of the question for most of you. The next show will be a bigger deal, this was just practice really. I think the art work is pretty good for two first year students with little to no art training. Plus I think for my first hanging of a show I did pretty good. The frames were hand made by Rachels dad Joe and myself, and Rachel painted all except one, which I ended up painting.

So here are some pics from the show.

Setting Up: In these shots you can see Huachao and Crystal helping hang the sign. This was the last Friday of the term and we started hanging this show at eleven that morning. It is somewhere around four in these pictures. We were all so tired we didn't bother to ever get out of our jammies.



 

The sign is made out of vinyl and stuck to this paper so as you peel the paper away you have to make sure that they are sticking to the wall and not being pulled away with the paper. If they don't stick and you pull one off from the paper it usually becomes a disaster to try to get that one letter back into the correct placement.

As Huachao peels away crystal watches to make sure that doesnt happen.

 


 





SUCCESS!!!!



A Walk Through: Here is what the show looks like if you walk by it. I think the curved wall is pretty cool. The wall to the right of this picture is all glass so you can easily see the show even if you are walking on the outside of the building. Which I also think is cool because it means that there is more of an opportunity to pull people inside to get a closer look.

 


 


 


 


Individual Pieces: And here are some views of the individual pieces. Sorry about the lines and color, sun was setting when I took the pictures and I couldn't really get good shots.
