VCU Open Graduate Studios will be held this Friday, february 4th, 7-9pm, School of the Arts, Fine Arts Building, 1000 West Broad Street, all floors and lobby.
Yay! Open Studios are the greatest.
But.... the Adaption Syndrome panel (see two posts down) runs from 4-6pm and the opening reception for that show is immediately following, running 6-8pm. Uh oh, could be a conflict.
Richard Roth, the head of the Painting Department, is also sitting on the Adaption Syndrome panel so you would think that an effort would have been made to avoid this conflict - unless of course you are familiar with how the Painting Department is run. Richard didn't attend last year's Open Studios either.
Very few people* went to last year's Open Studio's, not because of a conflict, but because nobody knew about it. This year even less of an effort has been made to get the word out. Who would've thought that possible?
