Wednesday was the Artists' Reception for the Manufractured Exhibition at CCA, and I had the luxury of spending a quiet hour beforehand locked away inside the exhibition with my trusty Canon (and brand new killer lens!). Very excited to document this amazing show (and not just because my work is in it, mind you) and share it with fellow crafthausians. 
 Here I am with my Museum Series ladies (2 of which are brand spankin' new just for this show!). As I posted earlier on Harriete's discussion about art openings/tips, Introvert In My Heart, it's important for jewelers to wear show stopper jewelry to their openings, and best if the work relates to that on display. While I forgot my nametag at home, at least my jewelry did the trick.

Laurel Roth's mixed media fast furious explains exactly how I feel this week, amping up for Craft Forward, as if the racecar that is my life is going to shoot off into hyperspace like in Back to the Future.  Not unlike someone else we know.....
 

Yes, Harriete Estel Berman is also working round the clock with her Craft Forward Group blogs (here she is before the reception, furiously typing notes about the show, which you can read abouthere

What I love about this show is that is showcases LOCAL artists from multiple disciplines in craft, using alternative, yet familiar consumer materials. 

Like Liz Hickock and her Jello city tableau's, represented through her large scale, candy-like photographs and Gel Wax cast models (see below)

Oh the lovely Painted Ladies! Liz sells them at the SFMoma currently, and I couldn't resist getting one in blues and greens for my husband. Jiggly, jiggly. 

A sneak peak at Thomas Wold's furniture collages, this image I love of his Nightlights series. If Amy Sedaris was watching Tron on TV, that's what it would look like. More on Thomas' work in my next post. STAY TUNED....
