Oh! And I finally framed all the pieces I got from the Samson “Proof of Purchase” show! Im so happy with how they came out. Its hard to tell in the photo but I ended up putting them on a small piece of foamcore to help separate them from the back of the frame. That way they still feel like objects. Here are also the back of each image, incase youd like to learn more about each artist!
Britnie and I bought our first piece of artwork together! (the top image)
Samson had a “Proof of Purchase” exhibition where all of the 4x6 postcard sized images were $50! The catch is you dont know who the artist was until you buy it.
Arlette Kayafas, my boss, was kind enough to buy me the bottom left one and Britnie bought me the whale one. SOOO happy!
Cant wait to frame them!
It just dawned on me that I haven’t shared my exciting news! I am now the Assistant to the Director at Gallery Kayafas!
It’s pretty funny. Now that I am almost done with school, I get the constant question, “What are your plans for once you graduate!?” And I had always said that I would like to work in a gallery, get to know the behind the scenes activities that are involved with it. But in the back of my head, I never really thought that was realistic. But then I got an email from Arlette Kayafas asking if I’d like to come in for the position of Assistant to the Director (her).
I had frequently visited the gallery for First Friday events, along with any time else they were having openings/artist talks/book signings. I later got a text from Greer Muldowney asking if I would be interested in simply serving refreshments at Bruce Myren's private artist reception. I quickly answered yes and I later did it.
I must have left a good impression because Arlette’s assistant quit and she thought of me to fill the position.
I have happily been working at Gallery Kayafas for about a two months and I couldnt be happier!
Im extremely happy to announce that these two of my photos got accepted into the Undergraduate Photography Now show put on by the Flash Forward Festival. Feels great to be considered one of “New England’s best Student Photographers”.Come on down May 9th from 6-9pm at the Boston Architectural College for the open reception!
