CRAFTBOSTON SPRING

April 19 – 21, 2013

A competitive show comprised of 200 exhibitors, Craftboston Spring is a highly regarded, must-attend event for artists, collectors, and craft enthusiasts. Presented at The Seaport World Trade Center on Boston’s waterfront district (near the Institute of Contemporary Art), Craftboston Spring is conveniently located in one of the city’s rapidly rising cultural hotspots. Craftboston Spring draws its crowds from this burgeoning tourist destination, a loyal local population, and the affluent suburbs of the greater Boston area. It is also minutes from the city’s finest restaurants, shops, museums, and attractions. Additionally, Craftboston Spring features work by emerging artists from leading schools and universities, an artist mentor program, a craft book seller, an educational lecture series, tours for special interest groups, and informational booths promoting nonprofit craft organizations. 

 

CRAFTBOSTON HOLIDAY

December 6-8, 2013 (proposed)

Craftboston Holiday is a selective display of 90 artists at The Cyclorama at The Boston Center for the Arts. This 19th-century brick building creates an intimate showing and shopping experience. Located in Boston’s Historic South End, the show is aligned with an area well known for rich cultural arts events, galleries and organizations. Craftboston Holiday’s timing draws large crowds of affluent city collectors ready to buy.

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!

Texas!

I've just got back from almost a week in the Lone Star State which I was visiting on the invitation of my friends and colleagues, James Thurman and Umut Demirguc Thurman. What a trip! Based in Denton, Dallas, the main reason for my visit was to speak to the students at the University of North Texas and to work with them on a couple of practical workshops. Before…See More
