Open Studio 2015 was the main excitement in the first week of November. The fifth floor hallways were thriving with beautiful people looking to see great art work. The submission process for this year was slightly different and the overall exhibition felt more cohesive than the previous one. Students, alumni and faculty had the chance to show multiple work belonging to the same series.
It was hard getting through the thick crowd of viewers who were thrilled to see what we had to offer as an artistic army. The music selector was one of my favorite features there because of his selection of upbeat music to set the vibe for the scene. There was plenty of artwork being scooped off the walls and I could hear compliments thrown at artworks throughout the night.
Printmaking workshops were in action as well as the traditional light shaping event for the photography department. Over the painting division, I saw individual artists in their personal painting studio as they welcomed people in. There were live drawing and painting sessions going throughout the night. Game design, 3D design and animation majors had workshops as well, which brought in enthusiasts ranging from little kids to adults.
If you have not seen it yet, make sure to visit 5C for an inspirational experience. What’s left from the exhibition will remain up until next year, during fall quarter.
