Portfolio Review Day at the U of A, by Kim Blair

Me posing with 2 of my Self Portraits

Finally the day arrived... March 6 was my Visual Arts portfolio review at the University of Alberta!  I was assigned a studio to display selected pieces from each course in my particular stream of study, plus show the panel of three instructors examples of my art work created outside of the program.
It was quite a bit of work to select, pack and transport the art, then display the work in the room at the university, and finally take it all down again within a few hours... but all the hard work was worth it!
(I have to admit that my husband helped with the schlepping, etc)

In a couple of weeks I will receive a written copy of the panels critique for my records, but I left the portfolio review knowing that they recommend I now start creating art for my final project show at the university.
