The two-day event will begin on Saturday, June 2nd with a “Salon Discussion” during which Trask will present her latest work, a collection of brooches that are part of the artist’s Vestige series. Trask, whose intricate jewelry is made from found objects such as bone, antlers, and antique frame fragments, will also have on hand a selection of these unusual compositional elements for a discussion about appropriating natural materials. On Sunday, June 3rd, Trask will return to the Renwick Gallery’s Grand Salon for a lecture from 2-3pm. During the talk Trask will focus on her current work, both wearable and non-wearable, as well as her process, and what inspires her one-of-a -kind pieces.
