Passing Strange at Mary Baldwin College

Thank you to all the folks at Mary Baldwin College who welcomed me and my show, Passing Strange, to the Hunt Gallery this January. Paul Ryan, head of the art dept. at MBC and also gallery director, couldn't have been more gracious. The students were smart, receptive, and hard working.

My preconceptions about this southern, all women's college were wrong. That is, my old fashioned idea of "white girls in pearls" was, thankfully, very out of date. The student body is diverse, anything but privileged in attitude, and I found the ones I met in the art department engaging and engaged in their work. And they were quite curious about my artists' life, and how and why I make my work. I feel very honored to have had this opportunity.  Here are few installation shots.
