FRIENDS! It has been a couple of weeks since the Alumni Exhibit opening reception at Carson-College University's Homecoming. I've been really busy since I got back in town, but I wanted to let you all know how the weekend went. It went Great! As you can see above, it was a grand reunion among most of the exhibiting artists (my former classmates.) In the photo, we are doing the traditional pose of Strongfortism in front of the Warren Art Building. Want to see some more photos? Cool. Here we gooooooo!

I enjoyed it all so much! If you didn't get to be there for the opening reception, that's OK! The exhibit is on display in the Warren Art Building at Carson-Newman University, Jefferson City, TN until November 20th, 2012. I hope you all get a chance to check it out. Thank you to everyone who stopped by and helped make it happen (especially the faculty of the Art Department!) See you guys next time, God bless!
