When you are not working at the gallery what are you up to?

My favorite gallery moment was when the Buddhist Monks worked for three days to create a sand mandala.


Which musician or band would you most like to hear perform Charissima?

The Hamilton College orchestra.

What about art?  Do you have a favorite medium?

Pencil/pen and paper. I do a lot of drawing in class.


If you could have any artist create your portrait whom would you choose?



Tell us about your favorite exhibition at the Emerson Gallery?

My favorite exhibition was the senior show last year. I really enjoyed seeing what fellow Hamilton students, some of whom I knew from class, had worked on all year.
