The Uniques Sales is a chance for you to pick up some of my work (and that of another 30 odd jewellers and metalsmiths) as well as benefit SNAG at the same time. I know, what a deal, eh?
The hardworking Gwynne Rukenbrod, newly named Executive Director of the Society of North American Goldsmiths, has had her thinking cap on to find ways of fundraising for SNAG given their current budget crunch. One of the plethora of ideas has been to organise an opportunity for member artists to make some dough in the way they know best, by selling their work, of course!
So these guys are on sale right now, and if you get in quick you might just be able to pick them up for a song.
The other artists involved are: Stefanis Alexandres, emanuela aureli, Hratch Babikian, Erica Bello, Rebecca Belz, Melissa Cameron, David Choi, Lucy Clark, Luana Coonen, Chris Crosby, Mimi Favre, Robin Gordon, Jill Baker Gower, Adrienne M. Grafton, Amber D. Harrison, Sarah Holden, Roxy Lentz, Tara Locklear, Jera Lodge, Sharon Massey, Kim Nogueira, Gretchen Otto, emiko oye, Jennifer J Park, Louise Perrone, Meghan Patrice Riley, Steve Riley, Kendra Roberts, Cara Romano, Nazanin Rostami, Matthew Smith, Melissa J Tyson, Julie Prunier Vecchio, Sarah West, Lisa Wilson and Laura Wood.
In that list are a few names who might be familiar to you, like Sharon Massey whose work will feature in the next Schmuck exhibition (2014) and who is curator of Sup Brooch, an upcoming online show recently featured in my Deadlines posts. Then there’s Meghan Patrice Riley, winner, early in 2012 with her work Interstitial, of the Elizabeth R Raphael prize in the Transformation 8 Exhibition at the SCC Pittsburgh.
What else can I say? Srsly, check it!!!
