Aftermath: At the Hour of Our Death and Objects of Mourning, work by Sarah Sudhoff and Renee Zettle-Sterling

Event Description

Sarah's photographic work attempts to slow the moments before and after death to a single frame, to allow what is generally invisible to become visible, and to engage with a process from which we have become disconnected.

Through the use of metal, fiber, and found objects Renee's work explores how mourning and commemoration are contained within objects and our constructed systems.

Thanks for the info. I am in the same boat you are. I don't think I can attend either the opening or the closing b/c of my kid's schedules and this being in the middle of the week to boot. I will be in Baltimore during your closing attending a friend's 50th birthday which I simply MUST go to. That is really too bad. :-(

There is an opening reception, but I am not able to make it--Tommy starts school on this particular day.  It is September 6th from 5-7pm.  I am coming to pick up the work and give a talk and possibly a demo.  I think that is happening on October 6th and 7th.  It would be nice to see you again, but I know that sometimes it is hard to get to two events that are a distance from your home.  I hope all is well!!!  Let me know if you get to the opening and what you think.

Renee: Thanks for posting. Will there be an opening or closing reception? I'd sure like to come by if I can.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
