Not-So-Lone Star Studios: A Gathering of Texas Makers connects 37 artists currently residing in Texas whose creative practices engage in the conceptual dialogue of Contemporary Jewelry and Metalsmithing. As a rule, artists have been invited through a word-of-mouth selection process resulting in promising overlaps and differences of opinion.

 

Immediate observations reveal issues of vulnerability and protection, the body and memory, nature and industry, sustainable materials and indifferently found objects. In truth we may not share much. Our chosen materials and tools may span continents and centuries, but the belief we have in the value of things is enough to make introductions and pick up the dropped threads of a long conversation; one that acknowledges the intimacy of small things, the boldness of worn statements, and the tactile communication of objects.

 

Exhibiting Artists: Corey Ackelmire, Haydee Alonso, Harlan Butt, Kat Cole, Nicole DesChamps-Benke, Nathan Dube, Diane Falkenhagen, Laritza Garcia, Heidi Gerstacker, Robly Glover, David Griffin, Jan Harrell, Rene Henry, Kathleen Janvier, Anne Jones, Masumi Kataoka, Sarah Loch-Test, Ana Lopez, Criselda Lopez, Natalie Macellaio, Edward Lane McCartney, Jeffrey McGee, Tamar Navama, Beverly Penn, Sarah T. Roberts, Lauren Selden, Helen Short, Nancy Slagle, Jillian Sortore, Olga Starostina, Rachelle Thiewes, James Thurman, Umut Demirguc Thurman, Jess Tolbert, Erin Turner, Melissa Walter, Pilar Zornosa
