Deadline to Apply: August 15, 2012

HCCC’s Curatorial Fellow assists the Curator to develop, execute, and manage at least six feature exhibitions each year at or on behalf of Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC). The Fellow participates in all aspects of curatorial activities, including research for upcoming exhibitions, producing didactic materials and designing exhibition layouts. Additionally, the Curatorial Fellow assists with coordination and installation of exhibitions, art handling and registration. Because HCCC is a mid-size nonprofit arts institution, the Curatorial Fellow gains insight into general operations, including marketing, fundraising, education and social media.

In addition to helping manage feature exhibitions, the Curatorial Fellow, under the guidance of the Curator, has the opportunity to research, curate, and implement six exhibitions each year in the Artist Hall, an alternative exhibit space focused on presenting emerging and/or regional talent. The Curatorial Fellow also has the opportunity to work with staff on creating and executing public programs that advance the mission of HCCC.

The Fellowship is a three-year appointment funded by The Windgate Charitable Foundation. This full-time position requires a minimum of 40 hours per week, with weekends and evenings as needed. In addition to a grant-funded salary, HCCC provides an annual housing allowance, pro-rated 10 days of vacation per year, medical and dental insurance, and optional 403b retirement plan.

Grant-funded term: Fall 2012 to Summer 2015

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!

Ife Head and Collar

I've been in the workshop a lot over the last week - not all of which has been to bury my head in the sand away from the increasingly nasty pro- and anti-independence campaigns in Scotland (which is also why I've not been so active on social media recently). Mostly, I've been working on commissions - a set of buttons, a couple of rings - and the collar…See More
