Exciting new things are coming here at Shelby Roberie Ceramics! If you’ve already read my first blog post, you’ll know that I am a senior at McNeese State University. I will graduate in just a few short weeks, but before graduation, I will be participating in a senior thesis exhibition. All of the work that I have made over the past semester will be on display at the university. I am very excited to share with you that the show opens tomorrow! The opening reception is 6-8 tomorrow night at the Abercrombie Gallery in the Shearman Fine Arts building. My work will be showcased along with the work of other graduating art students and I couldn’t be more pleased with the people that I get to share the gallery with. This is such a bittersweet moment for my classmates and I because we have finally reached the end of our undergraduate education. If you like art and are in the Lake Charles, LA area, stop by and check out the gallery!
Aside from the opening of the Fall 2018 senior thesis exhibition, another exciting thing is in the works: holiday preparation! If you follow me on Instagram (@shelby_roberie_ceramics), odds are you have seen some in-progress images of various Christmas ornaments. Today I dropped off about half of my ornaments at Mercantile 54 Trading Co. in Welsh! In addition to ornaments, I also have pottery and jewelry available for purchase. Mercantile 54 is such a cool store run by such an awesome person. Even if you’re not in the market for ornaments at the moment, I highly recommend stopping in to Mercantile 54 Trading Co. They truly do have something for everyone!
Thank you for reading this second blog post here at Shelby Roberie Ceramics! I hope you have enjoyed sharing the excitement of these new beginnings with me!
