Do we have any artists in the house?

Calling all of our Tolog artists!  The FSHA Library Advisory Board (LAB) would like to showcase your art. We want to turn the Library into an art gallery, and we've gotten our start thanks to freshman Sarah-Kelly Schrupp.  Thanks, SK!  She's become a liaison between art students in the annex and our space, so if you're interested in having your work displayed here, let her know (or me!).

You don't have to be in art classes on campus to show your art in the Library.  If you create art at home, tell us about it!  We want to show the world what you can do.

Take a look at one of our first pieces, by Angie Zhao '18.  Isn't it gorgeous????? (Sorry, my photography is terrible.  You'll just have to come see it in person.)

Here's what Angie writes about her piece:

The reason that I choose to use fork and knife to show the hand activity is because before starting this project, I just watched a music video of the song "Anti-Hero" from a Japanese band called SEKAI NO OWARI. I am really partial to the way how they use a hand dance to show the enjoy of foods. So be inspired by that video, I choose the theme of "eating" and decided to draw two hands with tablewares highlighted in red in order to show the theme of "eating". Also I use pencil to sketch instead of use paint to painting is since I think pencil can show the change of tone more detailed than painting.
