Opening the doors to Ground Control

A view of Tuesday night's crowd through the doors of the Westside Gallery.

Tuesday evening’s opening reception for the senior thesis show Ground Control went very well. There was a large turnout, and visitors really seemed to enjoy the chance to talk to the artists about their works.

Below are some images from the reception, courtesy of VCS student Berny Tan. The show will remain up through February 5th. If you haven’t seen it yet and want to stop by, you can find more information about it here at SVA’s exhibition overview, and also at my previous blog post.

You can also see many more images from the reception at the VCS blog’s Events page, including closer views of some of the works in the exhibition.
