We do a fair amount of teaching related to the business of art. Both of us have been engaged in the profession of art since early childhood and we have seen lots of bad practices. When you find someone who does it right, they deserve an accolade. If they weren't doing things right, you'd want to know about that too (and we'd tell you). Good or bad, we feel it is important to communicate throughout our peer network. This is how we, as group, understand and recognize patterns of business behavior in ourselves and in our potential partners (ie suppliers, galleries, shops etc). That is why we define our terms and don't leave it at "they were professional". By spelling it out, it sets a benchmark for comparison to other galleries and shows.

That is indeed a glowing recommendation. Thank you for sharing your experiences. That is immensely helpful. I will try to participate this year.

Zaruba Zarube (the gallery) and everyone we dealt with were very professional and totally first class. We define this as: They communicated well, and often. They kept us informed about schedules, shipping and purchases. Our entry was sold early in the show. The gallery notified us immediately, including the buyer's information, and when we could expect payment. They then followed up and paid exactly as promised. As artists, we work diligently to be professional and adhere to principles of sound ethics and business. We expect no less from the galleries, institutions and stores we do business with. Zaruba Zaruba was exemplary.

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!

Starting Points

My love affair with fine metals started several years ago when I was able to take a Young Artists Workshop at Moore College of Art and Design.  After my first jewelry class and I was pretty much hooked.  I continued chasing the dream and received my BFA in Studio Art, concentrating in Metals from Rowan University, while studying under Jill Baker Gower. I am grateful that I was able to find my focus, enameling, and really develop a body of work within the few years following my gradation.…See More

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.
