Thank you for your interest in our first annual Spring Juried Exhibition. We invite you to apply with works of wearable art that fit with this year’s exhibition theme: Brooching the Subject.
Artists are asked to submit up to three one-of-a-kind wearable works, in the form of a brooch or pin, that explores social and cultural commentary.
As a student of art history and a lover of art jewelry and metalsmithing, I often find myself reminded of artists or pieces from my art studies when looking at art jewelry. I thought it would be fun to start a new series of posts where I share a little about a jewelry artist or piece and give an intro to the artist or work from art history with which I sense a compliment or connection.
For the second post in this series, we will be looking at the historical artist Louis Comfort Tiffany and the contemporary Art Jeweler, Carly Wright.
Like many of you, we were saddened this week by the supreme court decision involving a wedding cake from a Denver area bakery. Since that ruling, we have seen a lot of comments and attention being given to the bakery involved in that case, but we feel like we should all be focusing on the vendors in our area that support inclusion and the LGBTQ community rather than giving more attention to those that support hate.
