Caught in the time warp of Art Versus Craft

We participate in a creative exercise related to EtsyMetal, a group of metalsmiths organized around Etsy. The exercise is called "Blog Carnival". Each month a topic is chosen and a variety of members from this international group each provide their individual perspectives on the subject. We thought (mistakenly) that we had scraped the subject of Art Versus Craft off our shoes for good. Thanks to Blog Carnival we have stepped in it again. It appears that it is the topic that will not…

“I went to the Yuma Art Symposium and all I got was this life changing experience” The Final Day

If you remember anything about traveling to the Yuma Art Symposium, let it be this.  Do not; I repeat DO NOT drink copious amounts of alcoholic beverages in the desert while jumping back and forth between a salt-water pool and a hot tub. You will most certainly wake up the next morning feeling exactly…

Finland and Pot Viapori!

  This spring brings new opportunities.  In August of 2013 I visited both Estonia and Helsinki seeking out opportunities and meeting many wonderful artists.  By invitation, I will be working at Pot Viapori , www.viapori.fi/, in May and June.

Can production craft be judged?

©Bruce Metcalf 2014

 

After the recent ruckus about my “abstract crapola” remark on my Facebook feed, a number of interesting issues emerged out of the blizzard of outrage.

“I went to the Yuma Art Symposium and all I got was this life changing experience” Day Two

After a jet lagged deep sleep, we were up and ready to take on whatever Yuma had in store for us! Our group piled into the rental car we affectionately nick named the “Pri Pri” (Short for Prius) and headed down town. One of the interesting things Yuma is its location, West of the Colorado River and a hop skip and a…

“I went to the Yuma Art Symposium and all I got was this life changing experience” Day One Part 2

The Zeller Theater is attached to the Yuma Art Center, complete with art deco light fixtures, original concession stand and of course two hand-painted nude mermaid women at the front of the house. Originally built in 1911, it is a perfect example of the time traveling charm that the majority of the…
