The Justified Sinner (Dauvit Alexander) came to Pittsburgh last week and a band of local metalheads got together to meet with him. I picked Dauvit and his partner Dingo up on Friday evening and we went to a gallery crawl in downtown before we met the others for dinner at the Church Brew Works. Fun times!

We hope to see you guys back in the 'burgh soon. You are amazing!!!

 

Here are some images:

Watch out for the fancy footwork in this one!

The poor guy had to pedal the 3 of us around,

as I managed to squeeze in there too :-)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was happening at Space Gallery, various artists               I am just throwing this shot in for no particular

were painting on the walls while a packed crowd was              reason. It is a back alley we were walking

watching. Both Dauvit and Dingo liked this work                      through that all 3 of us liked :-)

the best.

Thank you, Brigitte! Maybe next spring, when I hope we will be settled in after the move in November 2011.

Thanks Marcus. What I told Sophia is certainly true for you as well. Hope you guys can also make it over here some time ! Pittsburgh really is wonderful. Dingo said he never had so much good food in one place... well, we sure know how to feed them... President Obama loves it here, he has a certain diner/breakfast spot he goes to when he's in town. He even had the chefs flown in to the White House to serve him breakfast there... I'll take you to that place. Promise !

Wonderful pictures, Brigitte!

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!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016, Thomas Mann's Gallery I/O April 1 - June 25, 2016.
