CSN Juried Student Exhibiton ~ 2015

The Community College of Southern Nevada Juried Student Exhibition opened with a reception last night at the Cheyenne Campus. This annual exhibition selected art from more than 150 drawings, prints, ceramics, metals, sculpture, digital images, and design works. The artwork that was submitted is representative of more than 30 different classes from 15 faculty members.

I am honored to have an art piece selected into the exhibition.  The piece, "Needle and Thread" is a sculpture which was made in the Three Dimension class taught by Wayne Littlejohn, Spring 2015.  The larger than life spool was constructed out of styrofoam, auto body compound, and resin. The yellow measuring tape was made out of canvas which was painted then sewn.  I tested several paint types to get a pliable result before creating the final version.  The needle is a wooden dowel shaped using a band sander.  The silver coating applied to the dowel after shaping is a material called soft wax.  The color and shinny texture were perfect for the needle's finish.  Finally, the thread is a standard grey rope purchased at a local hardware store.  I was happy with the final piece as all the components visually worked well together.
