THIS THURSDAY @ TABER GALLERY @ HCC Special section!
What to wear to the reception February 16 at 5:30 pm.
Naturally you are agonizing over what to wear to Dean's reception
at THE TABER GALLERY AT HOLYOKE COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
We all are, trust me. Dean is a wreck!
So, to make things easier for everyone I have done your research
for you. Here are some helpful tips I found online. You can
owe me. I found this info on a prom site. Proms are a lot
Put on makeup carefully: You'll want to put on a sheer
foundation and unless you have to, skip the blush. You might
want to go for the smokey eye look and clear lip gloss.
Remember that you can only dramatize the eyes or the lips.
If you can't do your own makeup, go to the local mall or
have a parent/friend do it for you. Another good makeup
idea is a glittery shadow. It will highlight your eyes and
make them the focal point.
Choose the right jewelry: Don't go overboard matching.
Either necklace and bracelet, bracelet and earrings, or necklace
and earrings. Don't match all 3!
Nails: Get a manicure/pedicure or glue on nails. Keep
in mind that if they are too long or too squared off then
it will not be glamourous, it will be tacky. Which is pretty
Hair: Style your hair to go with your dress. Experiment
the week before the formal to see what looks best with your
dress, frame, etc.
Shoes: Honey, you want at least 3 inch heels. But,
remember you will be dancing all night, so pick up shoes you're
comfortable in. Either buy cheap shoes you will not wear again
but match the outfit or buy expensive shoes that you will
wear with every outfit.
Grooming: Get ready by shaving, plucking eyebrows,
showering, etc. Its good to get ready with friends! Having
a tan is hot but if you are using a self tanner be sure to
have used it before. You don't want to look orange and blotchy
for your big night. Ick!!!
Paintings and drawings: a combination of abstracts and narratives.

Reception to follow the talk.
See artist's work at www.jackbalas.com
my work has focused on painting and photography, with
occasional works in other media fixed in for variety.
Across them all, I have been interested in linking
the visual and the verbal, conceptual and material,
the viewer and history, fact and fiction, abstraction
and representation. Broad territory, granted, but
I have long been interested in maps, and the idea
that you, the viewer, can build bridges between images
and ideas, interpreting a construct where, despite
my intent to have laid out a map in front of you,
I can not guess where you might choose to go, nor
even which route you might take."
