We had a great turnout for the opening of the "Cyborgs and Dandelions" show yesterday. The student gallery club did a bang-up job, taking acres of artwork, and making it look elegant against the walls. The winners were, in first place, Karl Schwiesow, represented by a metal and wood sculpture called "Cube," and a sculpture of a saw built out of plywood. He's currently at Lake Tahoe Community College:
Second place went to Roger Walker, also from LTCC, with a suite of black and white photos:
And third place went to Jesyka Hayworth, yet another LTCC student, for her print "A Terrible Habit":
Unfortunately, I can't include pics of works by all the artists, just because the show is sufficiently full that, to include everybody, the blog post would run a fathom or two down the scrollbar. So to get a comprehensive view, you'll have to check it out yourself. What follows is an abbreviated taste:
Lastly, here are a couple unrelated bonus pics -- on the way back to my car after the show, I passed through Patterson Hall, and was surprised to find the far end of the dining hall engulfed by a giant grey inflatable. Someone told me an astronomy class was holding court inside there. I've yet to corroborate, but since I haven't heard rumor of any SNC collaborations with Christo, I'll take him at his word.
