Reuse, Renew, Recycle, Assiyah, Yetzirah, Beriyah TuBishvat Seder Plate by Harriete Estel Berman

I think the Plexiglass takes away a little from the image, but the purpose of the Plexiglas is to allow placement of the dried fruit on the Seder plate ( without touching the tin.) Some museums will not purchase Judaica if it can not be used.

Bridgitte,

Thanks for the idea for contacting National Museum of Education.  Also, super thanks for including me as a featured artist this week. What an unexpected thrill!.

It has been my experience that political social comments in craft are a "hard sell". Craft for so many people is just skill.  The other issue is that some places can't hang this from the ceiling. 

I have no idea really why the Museum of Art and Design said "no" (very politely, of course.)

Oh, I am surprised..........I thought for sure one of the two would be interested......Sorry to hear that...

Comment by Harriete Estel Berman on January 6, 2012 at 6:25pm

I already tried them. They said 'no'.

What about the Museum of Art and Design here in NYC?

I am looking for exhibition spaces for the "pencil sculpture" Pick Up Your Pencils, Begin. Any ideas.

This is always a challenge.

Comment by Suzanne Golden on January 6, 2012 at 6:14pm

Well, I'm a big fan of your work and I loved your "Pencil" Sculpture.....I'm not sure what to call it except amazing!!!

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.

DETAILS on exhibition premise, call for artists, submission guidelines.....

OFF TO THE RACES:

Rachel and Brigitte got started on their own cooperation. Follow along and comment.
