Hi Tamra!

Sorry for my super late response.. Grad school is great! It is nice to be super busy doing what I love! I am really excited to come back to Lillstreet this winter! How are things with you?

Thank you so much for your compliments of my work. I am hoping to make friends with artists working in all mediums. And to be a positive voice for my medium. I really appreciate having positive feedback for metal smiths, especially, because in general working in wire seems to be down graded amongst folks who fabricate and cast. I will eventually be doing everything, but it is a matter of time and money. No classes in my city. And, it will take a chunk of money I simply don't have to pay for classes, gas to drive an hour and a half round trip for the classes, and for materials.

So, for now, I do the highest quality work I can possibly do within the confines of the medium I can afford to work in. I am excited for the future though, because I know I will eventually get to do it. I am settling for reading, watching videos, and listening to podcasts about every aspect of working with metals, from sterling, to 18K, to platinum, and all the various alloys.

I understand about the choice. I had to choose between cello and bassoon when I went to college. It just wasn't practical to major in two instruments and try to do art history and ceramics. They ALL require so much time. Now, it is even more difficult because I work full time, in neither field. I am very committed to both music and my jewelry. I am passionate to learn and do as much as possible with metals and stones, and all other materials. I love jewelry so much. It is difficult when I really only have from 6pm to midnight or 1am and I have to choose. I have pretty much been letting the fact of how many commissions I have on the work table vs. what gigs do I have to prepare for and how involved are they determine how I spend my evenings. I am always playing catch up.

Hi, We jury online exhibitions for Crafthaus. Please look at our calls:

Earthly Pleasures http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-call-earthly-pleasures

Me, Myself and I will be our 7th show http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-callme-myself-and-i

Sitting Pretty Part 2 is how the show will look http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/sittingprettytheartsittingpretty

A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.

We try to make the submission process as painless as possible! If you have any questions please let us know.

Glen & Marie Guarino

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for artists and fine craftsmen/women ! I am very glad you joined us !

Please add your thoughts to the blogs and discussion forums that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in.

I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.

Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. You will find all the necessary information on how to go about this in the FAQs section of the site. Your membership fee is due on or before February 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.

All images sent to the website will be reviewed to assure some measure of overall quality control. Crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT in both content and photo quality. From the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible.

Crafthaus does not support any kind of commercial solicitation of our membership. Anyone sending out communication of that kind will be suspended from the site.

Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime. I will do my best to be of help.

Again: Welcome and enjoy !

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal. Some artists creatively tap into these challenges and give voice to them through a variety of mediums and styles. Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More
