Graduation!

 

Kim Mason is now a graduate of Cornish College of the Arts, with a Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts, Magna Cum Laude.

Friday evening was the opening of the Art Show of all the graduating Seniors.bfa 1

People admiring Kim’s work.  It was an impressive show, but very hot and crowded.  The work really needed to be viewed when you could get up close and read all the fine print about the process that went into it.  bfa 2

Cheesy smile shot.  The short description of her thesis :  “Based on language derived from found objects, four typographic illustrations examine how a contextual shift can alter or deepen the meaning of the message.  All type included in the work is custom, and all printed pieces were screen printed by hand with love in Seattle, WA”cheese

Speaking of Cheese, while Kim was rehearsing for the ceremony, we toured Pikes Place Market where they were having a Cheese Festival.stage

My attempt at a picture of Kim receiving her diploma from the College President, maxed out telephoto.family     

Happy and proud family.

 

I can get pretty good picture in inanimate objects like flowers and quilts, but taking people pictures is just not my thing.
