May First Friday

Here are a few pictures from May's First Friday at Railroad Square. It was so packed that I had to park downtown. The B.S. Grad Show was in the 623 Gallery and looked fantastic. I took a photo of Chris Beard, the mastermind behind the exhibit, hanging the final pieces of work. Kelly Boehmer had a few additional pieces in the 621 Gallery, which unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of. However, they were fantastic as expected. I also missed the opportunity to take pictures of Lee Bretschneider's work at Bacon and Bakin' and Strange Circus Gallery. I'm a big fan of his work. ( The Milagros Gallery did a great job at putting on an entire Women's Show. I had an embroidery piece in attendance along side talented artists such as Jessica Gatlin, Felici Asteinza, Courtney Asztalos, Carrie Ann Baade, Amanda Boekhout, Tamar Dachoach, Tina Imel, and more! The needle felted piece I made was called, "Making Friends", and it was showing in the BFA Warehouse. The bone is just another piece of the large embroidery floss installation I'm working on. Saturday was followed up with an incredible roller derby game from the Tallahassee Rollergirls. I got to be an announcer which was very fun. What a ridiculously exciting weekend! I wish I could send a huge hug to everyone I know for being so damn amazing. A hug and a shot of whiskey. Cheers!
