I hope everyone had a wonderful and joyful Thanksgiving this year. I’m sure we all have something to be thankful for this year. Even if is the smallest thing. For this weeks blog I would like to share some memories I’ve made during my Artist Residency for which I’m thankful for. Here are some things I’m grateful for this Thanksgiving:
Being surrounded by mountains! Ever since I found out I was going to be interviewing for the Photography Artist-in-Residence Position I started imagining all the adventures that awaited for me in the mountains of NC if I was to get the position. I have been blessed to have a residency in such amazing place and I’ll always be thankful for that.
All the friends I have made during my stay in Highlands so far. Here are some pictures of some good memories:
Rachael’s Birthday when she was still working at The Bascom. I hope you are doing great things at The Mountain!
I’m so lucky and thankful to have met these two ladies! They are the best when it comes to creating objects and sculptures from clay. A special thank you to Diana for inviting me to be part of the Feeling Latino exhibition in Greenville, SC. Sam & Diana, you guys are the best!
I’m thankful to be part of The Bascom Family. These are some hard working people right there.
This picture was taken on Billy’s Birthday! Thankful for all the birthday food and all the morning coffee Billy makes, yes!
Thankful for interacting with other artist during my residency. Especially those who are just starting their career as an artist like myself. Thankful for meeting Cecily this summer!
I’m thankful for having such great students who I meet with almost every week. Noah and Claude, thank you for keeping me busy!
I’m thankful for silly nights and bonding time with Friends.
Thankful for having a place that allows me to keep practicing my art and allowing me to exhibit them.
Finally, I would say that I’m most grateful for having such great mentors and friends. These two guys have given me many opportunities to grow as an artist this year and I’m extremely grateful for that. Billy and Will, Muchas Gracias!
