Today is the opening for the BFA show. Since I’m graduating, I’m in it this year. I have ten pieces in it. It feels so weird!
I tried to invite a bunch of people I thought might make it, but at the moment only my family(both parents and their accompanying step-parents) and boyfriend are coming in for the opening tonight. It should be interesting, I rarely see my parents together anymore now that I can drive to see either of them and I’m no longer delivered back and forth like a parcel. We are all headed out to dinner afterwards as well.
This is going to be quite surreal, I have gone to most of the others at the end of each semester, but it is hard to imagine this one as mine. I have had my artwork displayed once before, but it was for my book arts class and only included work from that. It was much smaller.
I think my work looks ok. Hanging it was a pain, but nevertheless a good experience.
I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that this is my last couple of weeks here if I don’t make it in, or end up going to grad school. Even then, it will be different, as I don’t plan on living on campus if I’m here for grad school.
I’ve never been good with change, even less so with uncertainty, and my life seems made up of both in the coming months.
