Exhibition of Contemporary Metalsmithing and Jewelry
"To be (determined): an exhibition of the first five"
The Hatton Gallery at CSU is hosting an exhibition of emerging metalsmithing and jewelry artists, titled "To be (determined): an exhibition of the first five." There is an adage in the art world: the first five years are both the hardest and the most critical. This exhibition showcases artists in the 'first five': an exhibition which offers a moment to encourage artistic momentum and the occasion to recognize new developments in the field of jewelry and metalsmithing.
Juried by Sarah Turner and Maria Phillips, the exhibition showcases a broad range of jewelry and objects that not only reflect tendencies and ideas that challenge tradition, but represents the growing range of diversity within the field of metalsmithing and jewelry as well. Juror Maria Phillips will be visiting CSU to lecture on her own artwork; she will also be giving an informal and interactive gallery talk to discuss the works included in the exhibition.
Events are free and open to the public.
- Exhibition runs from Oct. 26 - Nov. 20, 2009.
- Exhibition Reception, Friday, Nov. 6, 6 - 8 p.m.,
- Gallery Talk with Maria Phillips Friday, Nov. 6, 3 p.m.
