happily ever after 2!

my show Happily Ever After? 2 opens next weekend at Suite 100 Gallery. very excited! and also starting to feel the tinges of stress coming on. but more excited than stressed, which is always good. {view artwork here}

after this and my photography show This Place is a Prison (also at Suite 100), i'll probably be taking a little sabbatical from curating because i got accepted into Wieden + Kennedy's 12 program and will be moving back up to portland and starting class next month. i'm a little scared and a lot excited about the opportunity to work my butt off in a field that is not that familiar to me. my class (of 12 people) will be working on actual advertisements for actual companies that W+K work with, so i'll be updating as projects are completed and who knows, maybe you'll see something i made on tv! (^__^)

that said, i plan on attending and updating on a lot of artsy goodness happening in the portland area. i feel like i've missed a lot in the 4 months i've been away and i can't wait to get back.
tonight was another round of First Thursday openings in portland and Usugrow is showing at Fifty24PDX! so sad that i missed that opening, because i'm sure he flew out for it. Compound Gallery is having a remix the masters show and tomorrow, Grass Hut Gallery is having their opening for a two person show with Trish Grantham and Amy Ruppel.
too many great shows that i'm missing. (-__-) *sigh*

Monica Choy said...

(^__^)thanks! i'm so lucky that i got in!

haha...the sharpie took a few days to come off completely. for the last two days it looked like someone had been punching me in the neck.
