2019 Student Juried Exhibition Juried by Jenny Gheith, Assistant Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the San Fransico Museum of Modern Art
Living in Texas one can't argue that our hill country is not only beautiful but perfect for starry nights. Whether you're out on the farm, camping, or simply enjoying the night you can always see the milky way and all it has to offer. One thing I enjoy most on clear nights is driving through the paster with my head leaned back towards the sky, but something I've always wondered is: what am I actually looking at? This project series tackles this struggle by introducing novice star explorers into the world of Astrology.
This series includes a set of two perfect bound books, one for the Northern Hemisphere and one for the Southern Hemisphere, where you would flip through each constellation by season and learn some interesting facts about each constellation and where to find them in the night sky. It will also feature a set of constellation cards that you can hold up to the sky to help you find each constellation you’re looking for. This set will be moderately small, we’re talking 5x5, so one can easily store it in their packing gear or pocket and use it at their own campsite or backyard adventures.
