Trip to Mass MoCA and THE CLARK

Posted on December 26th, 2011 by

I promised to write about this trip, but never got a chance due to the end of semester business. Well, now I got time I can share some images from the trip. First of all the trip date was postponed, due some circumstances, so we traveled to MA on Dec 2nd, 2011. I have been in Massachusetts several times with my host family, but this time it was a college filed trip to see art! I must say I expected more, but it was still OK.

The only thing is THE CLARK was under the construction so we get to see really small amount of artwork, but our life drawing class went to see the ORIGINAL DRAWINGS from the masters. That was pretty intense I must say, seeing all those precious drawings, studies, gosh… so breathtaking! We had to sketch from them, which was a class assignment. I must say I felt really uncomfortable doing so… I shall overcome this feeling ASAP, but I have weird feelings when I try to sketch when people are around me.. I know, but the STUDIO classes are different.. Anyway, the only way to overcome it is just to sketch more in public places.


I really enjoyed Mass MoCA. I have found an interesting connection with the contemporary art. I don’t know why, I just like most of them, especially I enjoyed the Sol Le Witt: A wall drawing retrospective exhibition! It was spread in three levels!  All in all that was fun exhibition and trip where




I took a lot of photographs  for myself and to share at our fine art page on facebook. Well enjoy! 😀

Welcome to my blog! I am Gülnar, an international student from Azerbaijan Republic. I am currently studying at SUNY Ulster where I obtained my A.A. in Fine Arts degree during the Fall 2011. Right now I am working on my A.S. in Advertising Design and Graphic Technologies degree. I plan to obtain my BFA and MFA. In fact I am a graduate of Azerbaijan University of Languages ( BA in American Studies), but at some point in my life everything has changed, and my career path as well. I am an artist/graphic designer/photographer. I live in upstate NY with my American family for the duration of my studies. I have many "likes & dislikes", so I am not going to count up all that in here :D, read my blog and you will see. I’ve chosen to keep this blog as I enjoy writing (yes, even in ENGLISH) besides art and sharing my observation & experience. I hope you will enjoy reading as much as I do while writing it. Thank You!
