Zweygardt Gallery Talk

Sculptor Glenn Zweygardt spoke about his life and work during a gallery talk in the Llewellyn Gallery last week. The current exhibition, Zweygardt Over Time, explores the various stages of his work as they have developed over time. I was pleased to curate this exhibition to showcase some of Zweygardt’s smaller works. It was an added treat to be able to view the exhibition with students as they engaged in conversation with the artist.

Using Maya To Create A Rube Goldberg

Hey everyone,

This is my first blog, and I wanted to take an opportunity to talk about what I'm doing in Digital Media and Animation a little, especially to try and give some perspective about how much fun it can be, and just how much imagination it lets you use. 

Right now I'm working on one of our digital media and animation projects for my computer animation III class. Basically it's supposed to be an animation that we made in Maya of a Rube Goldberg contraption, and then fully rendered out. We had the option of working with partners but I chose to work alone. 


I was kind of bummed that I thought I wasn't going to Ottawa, then my teacher approached me and said "Deirdre. You're going to Ottawa." It went like this:

"You're going."

"No, I'm not."

"Yes you are."

"I really can't afford it."

"You don't have to." 

Turns out, my own professor is raising money for me to go on this trip, with half the class to the Ottawa Film Fest. We've been designing t-shirts and selling like crazy.
