I was lucky enough to set up the exhibit in a beautiful auditorium. The space was amazing! We had great lighting and students could see the art well. Jennifer Ogden is the K-12 Art teacher at Victor and is one of our exhibiting artists in this year's show. I was fortunate to hear from Jennifer about her work and what inspires her. Jennifer talked about her piece, "Becoming the Fox." She told the students that the piece actually has another collage that goes alongside it. The second collage is of a hedgehog. "There's an old Greek saying and story about the fox and the hedgehog, does anyone know it?" Jennifer went on to describe how the fox is cunning, sneaky, and has many ways to defend itself. The opposite is the hedgehog. The hedgehog knows one thing and it knows it well. It rolls into a tight ball causing all of its spines to point outward. Jennifer often thinks about herself and asks others, "Are you a hedgehog or a fox?" "Sometimes we can be both", Jennifer went on to say that one isn't necessarily better than the other, they both can be effective strategies. In "Becoming the Fox" Jennifer created a collage of her son wearing a fox mask. She told the students that her son is graduating college this year and while he was in school, he changed his mind a lot. "He is more of a fox and I think my daughter plays it safe like a hedgehog." Jennifer then brought out more examples of her work and described to the students her process and other inspiration. Overall, it was a great day and it was interesting to hear from Jennifer about her work in her local community!
