OK, would anyone want to participate in a Part 2 of "Signature Work"? If there is interest I'm willing to do another version of this show.

I'm finding inspiration in all the artist's descriptions. I know I'll keep coming back here to reflect and pay deeper attention to their work. Thank you Pat for letting us all share our work in this format. Great diversity of work and thought.

Also, wanted to add that in the general evolution of my work it was SOOO HARD to pick one Signature piece!! LOL.

Folks,


Pat reported that there have been a few comments from people who would like to still include their work in the current online exhibition because for one reason or another they missed the call the first time around. Sorry, guys. This exhibition is curated and there will be no additions at this point. However, since this topic seems to be quite popular here, just like the Studio Sanctuaries were a while back- maybe, if Pat is up for it - we can do a second run of “Signature Work” a few months down the road?

Anyone who is interested, please get in touch with Pat directly via her page, she can take it from there.


BTW: All current calls are always listed in the crafthaus online exhibition group, and everyone who signs up in that group will get every new call emailed to them automatically as soon as they get posted. I also extensively feature all calls on the crafthaus main page (left side) and in the weekly "what's new" emails sent to every crafthauser with plenty of room to meet the deadline. There really are a bunch of chances to catch these calls but I do understand that things can fall through the cracks sometimes. My suggestion therefore: Check the crafthaus online exhibition group regularly!

Glad you are enjoying these exhibitions so much! They are meant to be fun for all!!

Pat you did a wonderful job. It is good to see so many media represented.

Harriete...My statement was edited so it does not explain that I grew up just outside NYC and had always been influenced by and loved the city. There is also some brief description of how the work is made...hand fabricated, not cast.

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.
