Hooray Towson Metals + Jewelry Alumni!

Today I received hand delivered bottle of wine today. Well, that is enough to make it a good day. What made this bottle special is that the label features the work of Leyla Tas, an MFA alumni from the Metals + Jewelry program at Towson University. Leyla came to Towson as a study abroad student. Leyla and I hit it off immediately and she took to metals like ferric nitrate to silver. She returned to Tasmania [look it up!] finishing her undergraduate degree, sold her house, and moved stateside to earn her MFA degree. Leyla's MFA exhibition [solo] was the first in the new MFA gallery in the Center for the Arts and filled the gallery. She entered her MFA thesis workin the City of Hobart Art Prize, Hobart, Australia which was funded by the Moorilla winery. Violá!
