Guys,

I just got off the phone with a producer from NPR WHYY's Radio Times. They invited me to come on their live radio show

this Friday at 11 am EST

http://whyy.org/cms/radiotimes/

I will be a guest together with Elisabeth Agro, Curator at the Philadelphia Museum of Art! The theme of the show will be to introduce Craft as an integral part of the world of art.

If you have time to listen and call in live, the info on how to go about that is on their website. If you cannot listen to the show live, you can catch it later via links on their website or their iTunes podcasts.

Radio Times is a live, two-hour, daily, news and information call-in show produced from WHYY, Philadelphia's NPR affiliate and carried nationally by the NPR/Sirius satellite channel 122. NPR Now, weekdays from 9-11p.

You can can count on a lot of traffic to crafthaus after the show, so if you are still waiting to update images etc, now would be the time to put your best foot forward!

Wish me luck, I hope to represent you all and crafthaus well!

Best,

Brigitte

Loved the interview. One hour was not enough time for this topic. A wide range of ideas were covered. It was a refreshing subject to hear on mainstream program. Radio Times is available as a Podcast. I might have to listen again! And the Craft Show at Philadelphia Museum of Art is a must. FYI-- the new Barnes Collection on the Parkway will open in a couple of weeks. Much to see in Philadelphia!

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!
