Too Many Artists In the Building: SFAI Concentrate 2014!

Hi all!  Since my last post, I have started my first semester at SFAI as an MFA student in Photography.  My first semester has been a puzzle of trying to get on a routine with my art-making, classes and class readings, art events (openings and fairs, etc...), my diet (vegan- so I cook a lot at home) and working out (running and yoga).  I have been trying to organize all of this, all the while making time for my family and friends.  Needless to say, I am a busy woman.  

I plan to make more detailed posts about my experiences as a member of the SFAI community thus far, but for now, I wanted to kick start all that with this post on the SFAI Concentrate this past weekend.  It was actually a weekend (Saturday and Sunday) dedicated to alumni returning to the campus.  There was a show of old photos that alumni contributed in the Diego Rivera Gallery, as well as lectures, meet and greets and the student art sale.  

While I did not have a table at the art fair this year, I attended the event on Saturday and took photos of my friends and their awesome art.  One thing (out of many) that I am most grateful for at SFAI is the ability to be surrounded by so many great artists and thinkers.  I have never been in such an art-intensive atmosphere before and it is a shock and a blessing. I can already tell it will be difficult to part ways at the end of my program in three semesters.  Anyway, here are some photos of some of the artists I visited at the event and their email, website or blog links bellow their photos.  Be sure to check them out and enjoy!
