ccs student exhibition '07

Here are the rest of the ccs pics from the student show. To see the highlights go to the next post.
It was a fun night (lots of art at ccs and mocad - post to come) and I happily started the night with a few plates of roast beef that they were serving....come on, I can't turn down free meat! haha... Now that I look at the picture it doesn't look that appetising but it was better than the beef in the "fancy" collectors lounge!
I get a little nostalgic when I go back - I always have to stand in the room that used to be my old studio and think back to all the good times. I don't think, even in my last year, I could have imagined where I am now. I remember how after my sophomore year I wanted to drop out and become an archaeologist after some great ancient history and anthropology classes! Good thing I stuck with it because art has become my life in just about every way. Time has really flown by and I look forward for the summer events and surprises to come!

The new finely groomed grounds, ccs never looked so pretty

If you see your art without the name noted please send a comment my way. There was sooo much to look at that night it was impossible to keep track of everyone.

I am so proud of the show! The students worked so hard this semester, both on and off campus on exhibitions. I get a real sense of vitality in the arts community

The artists name of the portapottie/bathroom was Crystal Lupo.

The work @ CCS this year was inspiring and just a real breath of fresh air. The range of works really got me excited to go back again!

For Heaven's Sake don't ANYONE post a photo of Michelangelo's David [that of course you took yourself on your last trip to Italy]

It might be interesting to test the puritanical boundaries of photobucket. Is something like Jenny Saville or Cecily Brown abstract enough to make the cut?

Anyone notice a connection between what jillian bonahoom wants to do and what kristin beaver does?

maybe it might be the fact that jillian was in kristen's advanced figure painting class?
there is a definite similarity..her pose, her clothes, the shadows, the entire composition. i see it.

The work was, for the most part, good. But does CCS really need all of it in the show? Give the work some space! Put some thought into where the work is shown and what it's shown with. Why is CCS is teaching its students to cram as much as they think you can sell into a show.

Why not have students learn curating or at least some sort of organizing of artwork. It’s great to get the work shown but you also need to show some respect for it.

The students down control this show. The instructors do. Everything is jurried into the show and installed with the supervision of the instructors.
