SAILposter copy

This is the first of a series of embroidered sails. They are 12 feet (4m) tall. I'm hard at work on the second set but it's slow going. The series is about mariners' deep knowledge and connection to place.....photo E. A. Clarke

Hi Bettina,
Thanks for the information about your show. How long will it be up? I have friends in BC that are getting impatient for me to visit. It would be great to get to see your work in person.
Cheers,
Kathleen

Oh yes, about the frames....One day I was driving down a country road and saw a farm house with a free sign on a bunch of frames. The minute I saw the frames I knew i wanted to experiment with them...and I have been ever since..

Hi, Bettina!
I absolutely love going to UBC and find it one of the most inspirational places o be, second to the Field Museum in Chicago The field has the largest exhibit of Coast Salish woven cedar art in the USA. Yes, I apprenticed with "Gram"Lillian Pullen , On Washington's West Coast n the Quileute reservation, surrounded by the Olympic Rain Forest. Currently, I have need living in Coast Salish culture surrounded by the Salish sea for the past 14 years..

We jury some of the online exhibitions at Crafthaus and are inviting you to submit to our calls-
Earthly Pleasures http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-call-earthly-pleasures
Me, Myself and I http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-callme-myself-and-i
Sitting Pretty Part 2 is how the show will look http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/sittingprettytheartsittingpretty
A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.
We try to make the submission process as painless as possible! If you have any questions please let us know. Glen & Marie

Hi Bettina,
Thanks so much for the comment. I'm very glad you've joined Crafthaus, the more BC artists the better, lets keep spreading the word! Your art quilts are wonderful.
 
 
 

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.

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

Rachel and Brigitte will be appearing on the wonderful Jay Whaley Metalsmith Benchtalk Radio Show, talking about the Co:Operation Garnish project, how they came up with the idea, what the project is about and the plans moving forward.

The radio show will be LIVE on air September 25, 2014 @ 6PM EST / 3 PM Pacific.
