The Heat is on- May 24th

I am a person without so much expectation, but I am easy moved by every sensitive presentation, especially the Lifetime Achievement Award. The presentation by Fred Woell was so warmer that every attendee stood up few times and applauded. Personally, I am very happy about the Lifetime Achievement Award program, because I can match the artist with his or her work that I had seen in different publishings and I am glad to see the recipient in person each time I have been to the SNAG conference. Time flies, but those artists left us those invaluable works and their experiences.

One of my favorites programs is the Spot Light talks. In 15 minutes, each presenter gives their experience through an exploration of their work as an emerging artist. When all information is compacted, each presentation exposes a huge energy in short time. Everyone had his or her own specialty and impressed me a lot. I wish I was one of them and I learned a lot through reading each story on the screen.

I also attended two longer presentations during the day, both which were good topics. Each presented knowledge, but I think I learned more from the demonstrations, such as Demo Mold-Making and Pewter Casting as well as One Blow Rivet.

Be honest, I was not planning to go the Exhibition in Motion event until Jera, one of my friends, told me she was one of attendees and gave me a ticket. In this T square show, I did enjoy the music, but I had not idea about the details of the show. The most important thing, I guess, was about my idea of those works. First, most of them were necklaces, except one is hamlet and another one is kinds of gloves. Next, some of them look like special to be designed for the Exhibition. I am not a critique person but I only interest s few of them.

"It makes me frustrated. The voice of experience is often ignored for the so called "new" that isn't new at all."

The Scottish Graduation Show Rush

SO... it is that time of year again and the degree shows are in full-swing. Unfortunately, because of the timings of holidays, the exam board and external examiner for my own graduands, I didn't get to see the usually exciting Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design show this year. This is doubly sad as DJCAD is the body which…See More
