Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My goals to accomplish during the fellowship period is to successfully complete the three exhibits that I already have scheduled, create new work, and actively pursue additional exhibition opportunities. I also will focus on pushing my work in new directions and to make my work more visibly complex by investigating new ways to create paintings. I will be able to measure the success of my fellowship by completing the exhibits I already have and by creating new and exciting work. I will be able to tell the success of these goals by how curators and viewers react to my work. I also will be able to evaluate the merits and growth of my work through documenting the work and exhibitions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I exhibited my work throughout the state. I exhibited in several rural areas and I was able to personally speak and discuss my work with many different people from all different backgrounds. I participated in an artist lead workshop where I was able to have a deep impact towards the students’ approaches towards art and their own art practice.
