I just had my BFA presentation this past Thursday here at CIA and I snapped some quick digital photos of the gallery setup and thought I'd post them.
The BFA presentation is the big final show that everyone has to do before they graduate. The main gallery at the school is divided up into 20 spaces and youre allowed one day to set up, and then your show is up for 2 days. On one of those 2 days, you have to hold a talk for about an hour where you present the work and are addressed questions by faculty and students. Big crowds show up and its a pretty big deal.
okay anyways, on with the pictures
Left wall... the portrait(second one over) was done in Oils and is 18"x24". the painting on the end is also Oils, done from sketches and reference, and is 36"x36". the rest are all about 8.5"x11"
Center wall... the first image is about 18"x24", Graphite, done from imagination. the second image is approx. 40"x50", also Graphite, done almost entirely from imagination. the final image is Oil on canvas, appox. 30"x40", done from sketches and reference.
Right wall... First painting is Oil, 3'x4'. the two smaller images are sketchbook size and the final image is made of 5 square drawings all 4"x4"
Back wall... the 2 paintings are 2'x4', Oil on board. The rest are all sketchbook size pages

the second to the last photo of the see thru case there is a picture in there seems to be a costume party or something but the two guys are throwing up signs. I remember seeing that in one of your previous post.. It would help me to see how you translated it.
:thumbsup: Great work as always. It's good to see traditional oils of more simple subject matter where we can see in detail the study of shapes, colors, value and figure, in the Mc Donalds piece, and the painting of the couple sitting on the chair. Nice character illustrations as well.
