s22-aau-bannerThank you Academy of Art University!

I would like to express my gratitude to everyone at the Academy of Art University and to those at the Atelier Gallery for making the Spectrum book signing event possible. I would also like to thank the caterers, the artists, Academy of Art University students and to the fans who all took part in making this event a wonderful and fun evening.

The Spectrum book signing event which was held on Friday, November 13th resulted in a thrilling evening. Two dozen artists arrived and hundreds of fans and Academy of Art University students arrived to partake in the festivities. The signing is open to the public and was hosted by the Academy of Art University.
