UPDATE

Hello everyone! It has been a month since my last post and I thought it would be a good time to update you on what is going on. I definitely miss Ring-A-Day, but I do have more time all together to work on more pressing matters.

This semester I have a lot going on. I am continuing my thesis work, curating/organizing a show for GAR Foundation, and teaching a CAD for Jewelry class. I just recently finished selecting the works for the show and now I just have to get some of them framed, install all works at the Foundation's office, and attend the reception. I am so glad I got this opportunity!

I will be having my Thesis review on Tuesday, March 27th at 9:00am. My work will be displayed in the School of Art Gallery in the Art building on Kent State Campus. There are three other grad students that will be showing in this large gallery that same week. Originally I did not want to be part of a group exhibition, but I am definitely seeing the benefits now. The exhibition reception will be Friday, March 30 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. Please feel free to come! All are welcome!

The Ring-A-Day series will be displayed in the Sculpture gallery the following week. The exhibition reception will be Friday, April 6. I have not decided what time, so please stay tuned! Don't miss this chance to see all 365 rings in one place! :)

I am planning to have postcards made for each show. If you would like to have one mailed to you as a reminder for the show or just to have, please send me your mailing address. My email is tott2@kent.edu

Below are some photos of Thesis Piece #1 (yoyo Necklace)....IN PROGRESS!
