With that being said, I am giving myself a deadline: the kitchen chairs I have been wanting to re-do are going to be done by 2 pm today. Once they are finished, I think I can say they took me five months and four hours to finish.

National Biennial Juried Exhibition
January 15 – February 19, 2013

is a multi-media show for two and three dimensional works exploring any theme.
The School of Art received over 165 submissions for a total of over 800 artworks,

contemporary works created around the country.
After a difficult deliberation, juror Dr. Paul Manoguerra chose 49 artists to share
