Hi all!

I decided I would like to try using my journal for the odd informative post, since I'm still fairly convinced no one wants to hear me babble about my going-ones (especially since there isn't much to ever say, thanks to grad school)

Today I want to tell everyone about Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose. This is an art exhibit I personally cannot recommend enough.

Below is an overview (taken from the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art website):

The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) will feature some of the foremost contemporary artists through a ten year retrospective of the art magazine, Hi-Fructose. This exhibition is a unique opportunity to bring a broad spectrum of artwork by over 50 artists from the pages of magazines and computer screens to the walls of a contemporary art museum dedicated to educating on the significant art of today. Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose is a collaborative initiative by two like-minded organizations – MOCA in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and Hi-Fructose The New Contemporary Art Magazine in San Francisco, California. Both are committed to creating an awareness of contemporary art that is informative, imaginative and relevant. This multi-faceted exhibition will feature artists working in a variety of media including sculpture, installation, painting, ceramics, and photography as well as interactive community outreach and satellite exhibitions. A wide selection of educational programming, film screenings, panel discussions, and events will provide the public an opportunity to interact with the art and artists in exciting new ways.

Hi-Fructose is an absolutely amazing art magazine that features all the up and coming contemporary artists. This gallery really showcases both the magazine's vision, and the fantastic artists who contributed pieces. My all-time favorite artist, Beth Cavener has pieces in this exhibit. 

While the exhibit began at the VA MOCA its done there and will be going on the road, so people in other areas have a chance to see it!


If you live anywhere near these locations seriously go check it out. It was an incredible and inspiring experience for me so I'm confident others will feel the same.

If you'd like to find out more check out the Hi-Fructose website or the VA MOCA website…

Thanks for reading!

Welcome to my gallery!

I don't post much but my art is generally Anthro, Macabre/horror, and various craft goods (sewing, plushies).

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you came to me asking if I'd be willing to trade or sell an adopt I bought--don't. It's really really rude and I guarantee the answer is going to be no. Also, if you came here nudging me to "look" at some adopts you're currently trying to sell--don't. I know it looks like I buy a lot of adopts, but I buy them because I like them, not because they were thrown at me. If I am interested I will find you. Not the other way around.

However if you'd like me to critique an adopt design I'd be happy to help!
