We had a blast at Art School Throwdown pt. 1!  There was Jeopardy, chair building and canvas stretching.  Not to mention some cool art and good food.  Part 2 is this coming Saturday at the OAL Gallery in the South Campus Gateway.  On display will be the works that jurors Denny Griffith and Karen Bell selected as well as the results of the chair building and canvas stretching competitions.  6-11 this coming saturday-don’t miss your chance to vote for the people’s choice award and see who gets selected for a cash prize!  Hope the sunshine is treating you all well.

Oh yeah, have you registered for Agora 7 yet?
