First of all, I’d like to congratulate one of my current students, Ashley Nord. She was just named one of this years Rhodes Scholars! I will be the first to say that, being her Digital Photography instructor, I had
everything nothing to do with her success. Here’s her bio in the official press release:
Ashley L. Nord, Rapid City, will graduate in December from the University of Minnesota with a triple major in physics, astrophysics and global studies, and a minor in Spanish. A pole vaulter who won fourth place in the Big Ten championships, she has conducted research in biophysics at ULCA and astronomy at the Universities of Hawaii and Minnesota. She has also been active as a tutor, and is writing a senior thesis on the drug trade between Latin America and the United States. At Oxford, Ashley will do a doctorate in physics.
I want to invite all of you to the College of Visual Arts Holiday Sale! Current students, faculty, staff, and alumni have work VERY reasonably priced at this holiday sale in St. Paul. The sale contains work that is all priced under $200! And there's a silent auction for more expensive pieces. The artists receive 50% of the sale, and the remainder goes to different scholarship funds at the College. Come check it out! I’ll be there for the preview party on Friday night, and then for the sale on Saturday.
