This particular exhibit is described as "from the pages of Metalsmith magazine, comes a juried exhibition of work produced since 2009. Metalsmith magazine is a publication of the Society of North American Goldsmiths."
Despite the rather enigmatic description, this exhibition does feature work that we would characterize as new, different and, yes, fresh. Work from the following 30 artists was selected for inclusion in this exhibit:
Stevie B., Suzanne Beautyman, Nikky Bergman, Jim Bové, Namu Cho, Jennifer Crupi,
Adriane Dalton, Sidney Caldwell Deaghlan, Anja Eichler, Aliyah Gold, Kevin Hughes,
Minwon Kim, Andrew Kuebeck, Robert Longyear, Timothy McMahon, Andrea Miller,
Edgar Mosa, Seth Papac, Mary Hallam Pearse, Ryan Peters, Sara Pfau, Devin Ragotzy,
Katie Rearick, Sondra Sherman, Natalie Smith, Amy Tavern, Stephanie Tomczak,
Jennifer Trask, Andrea Wagner, Amy Weiks & Gabriel Craig.
Here are a couple of images from this exhibition.
This is called 'Swag Neckpiece' by Jennifer Trask.
The following piece is called 'Ornamental Hands' by Jennifer Crupi.
With a finger on the pulse of what is fresh in design, materials, and techniques, this is an opportunity to see a wide variety of work that is out of the ordinary.
Fresh: Exhibition in Print will be on display until March 4, 2012. For more information you can visit the Metal Museum website.
