My name is Elena Zachary. One year after getting my BFA, I have an opportunity: to travel from Massachusetts to California in 18 days, passing though 18 states. Traveling through the American South will allow me to make new drawings that will expand my currently small 2D portfolio, as well as inform my 3D work.
Tentatively, I'll be traveling though: CT, NY, NJ, DE, MD, VA, NC, SC, GA, AL, MS, LA, TX, NM, AZ, UT, NV, and CA, with stops in DC, Charleston, New Orleans, Austin, a few national parks in the southwest including Carlsbad Caverns and the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, then through California up to San Francisco.
Boosting my portfolio will serve to apply for upcoming shows and exhibitions. The new places, people, and landscapes that I see along my journey will be the inspiration for my drawings. Some of these drawings may be detailed, some may be quick gesture drawings, some may be abstract, some representative, others with color or with added materials. I will be drawing daily, and it is these very drawings that will be delivered to you in return for a pledge. I am excited to see what kind of new work evolves from this trip. If you'd like to keep your own l
But I'm leaving MAY 12!!!! THAT IS COMING UP FAST!! Please consider backing my project. Your contribution will allow me to buy good quality paper and drawing utensils and help fund some of the expenses of traveling.
Finally, THANK YOU!
