My apologies for the late report.  So I snapped some shots of the show, the images looked swell on the screens- better than on any of my computer screens (despite how poorly my camera portrayed them).  Seven 27" lcd screens were used, set to cycle though the works assigned to each of them.  The ratio of images to screen wasn't bad though (maybe ten a piece).  I'm sorry to say my camera ran out of memory after just a small handful of shots (you'll notice the recurring characters), so while I didn't get a view of the show as comprehensive as I would have liked, I think I got enough to get a feel for it.  There was a photographer from the local paper who showed up beforehand to take some pictures of the works (haven't heard if they'll run an article or not), but he had wrapped up and was in the back in the reception area by the time I'd retrieved my camera.

   I've gotta' say, it feels kinda' weird to know that other random people have looked at my works in a said gallery. Makes you wonder what they were thinking as they were looking at one of my drawings: *strokes chin* " Hurhmmm...Nope, I don't get it."  *walks away and looks at other pieces*...heh
  Also, Cure was this held at your High School, or some open gallery near your town? Wish my High School did something half as cool as this. Did they serve cheese and crackers?  ;D
  At any rate, this was very cool, and thanks Cure, for pimpin' our stuff like that. Makes me feel all gooey inside. From one Southerner to another, " 'Preciate ya' kindness, good sir."

p.s. Holy Cow, I got second? I got second! Yay!!

my back hurts...

It was held at my high school (that I graduated from).
Yes, cheese and crackers were indeed served  :D

I was hoping I might get a picture of my piece in the gallery. No such luck, eh?

I'm glad the show went well, and congrats to you all!

I could've sworn i commented on this already. Wups!

It looks awesome! And well done to the winners, great pieces. :) This should definitely be done every year.  :yay:

I'm just wondering what that little white square is on the left screen of the bottom middle photo... :-\

Maybe it was a piece meant to demonstrate the power of a lone pixel? Or something.

Congratulations to the winners!  ;D

Did the Spartan get fourth place?  ::) I really liked that one.
