BFA Art Education Exit Show - Lamar Dodd School of Art - Bridge Gallery - Athens, GA  -  April 2015

        My Art Education degree was comprehensive in its studio focus and also included an Exit Exhibition at the close of our degree.  While I was student teaching in Spring of 2015, I had the opportunity to exhibit work with my fellow student teaching classmates, who are also incredibly talented artists themselves.

BFA Ceramics Exit Exhibition - Lamar Dodd School of Art - Gallery 101 - Athens, GA - December 2015

This was one of the most impactful experiences in my career, and definitely the most expansive body of work I have made thus far.  I feel I found a new voice, way of making, and form of expression through the creation of these pieces. 

*Please see my "bfa Exit" page on this website for all photos and the full description of this body of work.

Georgia Small Works - Juried Show - Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation - Watkinsville, GA - October - November 2014

I was excited to have 2 works selected for the Georgia Small Works 2014 Exhibition!  I had so enjoyed being in this show the previous year, that I decided to apply again!  The only run is that the work must be at or less than 14 inches in any direction, yet can be any medium. There were many great small works shown!
