Earlier this evening I attended the opening reception for the 2011 Alumni Exhibition at SUNY Brockport. I was excited to see the work of Abbey Hendrickson, Phil Hendrickson, and Rachael Hetzel. It was nice to finally see their work in person. I absolutely LOVE the Susan B Anthony piece by Abbey. Love.
Prior to the opening I attended a round table discussion with all three artists and they shared some really great stories and advice for young artists including “be nice and be prepared”, “if you aren’t a do-er make friends with do-ers”, and “go big or go home”. I walked away feeling really good about my current path and future goals.
All in all a great way to spend the evening!
