First day of grad seminar and lots of art

Yesterday was my first day of photo grad seminar at Columbia, and it was fantastic.  We got a surprise in the morning, which was a visit from Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, who are in town for Alex's show at the Stephen Daiter Gallery.  They each showed us work and and gave us insight into their process as working artists.  They joined us for lunch and we got the opportunity to speak with them further, which was really wonderful.

After they left, we got to see the work by all of the other first and second year grad students, and it was inspiring and exciting to see what everyone is working on.

In the evening, there were more openings than I could possibly make it to, but I made sure to go to Kelli Connell's opening at Catherine Edelman Gallery and to Alex's opening.  They were both fantastic, but I definitely need to go back when it's quieter and really spend time with the work.
