Morgan’s Art

20180324_151647.jpgMy niece Morgan is graduating soon as a Graphic Arts major.  She has an amazing imagination.  I flew to Savannah yesterday to see her art show.  She and three of her fellow students had a show with art representing their work from their years at college.  It was all amazing.  Everyone had a different story and different style and it was great to see.  Morgan is very much into developing characters for a graphic novel.  Her back stories for the characters are great fun.  Here is some of her work…and some photos of the family getting together for her event. Congratulations Morgan.  It was a great evening.

Yesterday I got to see an amazing exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art in Richmond….the Terracotta Army.  This whole story just fascinates me.  It was discovered in 1974 while farmers were digging a well.  Can you imagine???!!!!!  Here is a description from the VMFA website along with their link.  It’s worth the time to take a look.

“First discovered in 1974 by farmers in China, an underground army of nearly 8,000 life-size terracotta figures is known as one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century. Discovered one mile east of the known burial site of the First Emperor of China (r. 221–210 BC), or Qin Shihuang, the terracotta army was created to accompany the emperor to the afterlife. This exhibition features ten majestic terracotta figures, including a cavalry horse, among 130 works that tell the story of China’s birth and one man’s lasting imprint on a nation.”  Read more here.    And while on the VMFA site there is a link in the story to an audio tour.  It’s worthwhile to listen and see the beautiful photos.
