The Heat is on- May 24th

I am a person without so much expectation, but I am easy moved by every sensitive presentation, especially the Lifetime Achievement Award. The presentation by Fred Woell was so warmer that every attendee stood up few times and applauded. Personally, I am very happy about the Lifetime Achievement Award program, because I can match the artist with his or her work that I had seen in different publishings and I am glad to see the recipient in person each time I have been to the SNAG conference. Time flies, but those artists left us those invaluable works and their experiences.

One of my favorites programs is the Spot Light talks. In 15 minutes, each presenter gives their experience through an exploration of their work as an emerging artist. When all information is compacted, each presentation exposes a huge energy in short time. Everyone had his or her own specialty and impressed me a lot. I wish I was one of them and I learned a lot through reading each story on the screen.

I also attended two longer presentations during the day, both which were good topics. Each presented knowledge, but I think I learned more from the demonstrations, such as Demo Mold-Making and Pewter Casting as well as One Blow Rivet.

Be honest, I was not planning to go the Exhibition in Motion event until Jera, one of my friends, told me she was one of attendees and gave me a ticket. In this T square show, I did enjoy the music, but I had not idea about the details of the show. The most important thing, I guess, was about my idea of those works. First, most of them were necklaces, except one is hamlet and another one is kinds of gloves. Next, some of them look like special to be designed for the Exhibition. I am not a critique person but I only interest s few of them.

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!
