Event Description

The inaugural juried competition with 3 awards and some fine prizes.

DEADLINE! June 30! No exceptions! Take your pics now!

What to send:
1. Send images of up to three entries of a foldform pieces in jpg format, maximum 300 dpi to lewtonbrainfoldformaward@gmail.com
2. You may include up to two jpg images of each piece so the judges can see more than one view.
3. Title your image files with the name of the piece (i.e. Birdsnest 1, Birdsnest 2) but do not include your name anywhere in these files.
4. Attach IN THE SAME EMAIL a word file with your name, email, phone, address, the photo file names, and a sentence or two about the piece. Send as a word doc file. No docx, or pdf, sorry.

Judging Criteria:
1. The piece must be your own work (although other materials, i.e. findings etc may be incorporated into the piece). The foldform may incorporate found objects and purchased objects, if they further develop the folded form.
2. Judging will be based on excellence in execution, originality, and/or innovative development of a foldform family. These are awards for the well-executed work, the beautiful form, or the fresh idea that earns an appreciative nod of “Well-done work”.
3. Winners to be named on August 6, 2012 at the Fifth Annual Charles Lewton-Brain Conference, Center for Metal Arts in Florida NY, and online at www.centerformetalarts.com/blog and Facebook/Center for Metal Arts.
3. The entry may be either a folded form or a fully finished work, although a fully realized piece may have more wow power. Your call.

Judges: Charles Lewton-Brain, Tim McCreight, Sr. Editor Brynmorgen Press, Ed and Rhoda Mack, Center for Metal Arts

Prizes:
To be announced, but we think you’ll like them. A lot.

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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.
