Bob EbendorfHot Under the Collar, the exhibition I am co-jurying with Bob Ebdendorf at this year's SNAG conference, now has insurance AND the deadline for entries has been extended to February 1! Please follow this link to the call for entries. I would love to have a large selection of entries to choose from--the more the better in my opinion.
"Choker, collar, lariat, torque, pendant, the necklace is one of the most diverse formats available to metalsmiths today. Whether cascading down the front, or draped down the back, the possibilities are nearly endless. The human torso provides us with one of our largest canvases, while still keeping body as site.
From comments on the classic strand of pearls to contemporary takes on armor, this juried exhibition seeks to showcase how metalsmiths today interpret this incredibly versatile object.
Jurors: Robert Ebendorf (Belk Distinguished Professor at the East Carolina University Metal Design program) and Amy Tavern (studio artist and instructor).
"Hot Under the Collar" will be shown May 24-27, in conjunction with the 2012 SNAG conference. The exhibition will take place at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts (SCPA), in a large atrium, and is located just steps away from the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Please note that SCPA will provide insurance. Accepted works must arrive at SCPA on or before May 23, 2012. Return shipping costs must be covered by the artist either by pre-paid shipping label or by credit card. Work may also be picked up from SCPA at the end of the conference."
