Regalia: A Wearable Art Performance

So I guess I haven’t been here in a while.  Imagine that.  I’ve been busy with school- last semester was crazy!  I had a lot of family stuff going on, and also a big show to prepare for!  The performance was called Regalia, and we had two shows- one at Art Central and one at the Art Gallery of Calgary.  There were 18 of us students, and our teacher, Dee Fontans (who also dances The Jeweller) and it was quite the undertaking.  The show at Art Central (Nov.5, 2009) was huge- around 500 people!  The show at the AGC (Nov. 6) was quite a bit calmer, as it was a VIP show, and therefore, smaller.  After the performance, we got to go to the ArtWear show at Hotel Arts!  It was an amazing party- I had so much fun dancing with my giant tie!

Starting off- A little about me!

So, um, I decided it’s about time. I need a more public place to share what’s been going on with me. I plan to use this space to share my life, art, journals, etc.

So, a little about me. I loooooovvvveee school. Or, more specifically, my school. I am currently a fibre major at the Alberta College of Art + Design in Calgary. I have just finished year 3 out of 5 – it’s a four year program, but I’m taking my time. I am really into designing repeating patterns right now, as well as many other things. I am also really into business and am a project manager of the smART group, an inter-school student run project that organizes learning events for emerging artists and students to learn the business they need in order to thrive as a professional artist.

Anyway, more to come later- I’ll consider putting up some images!
