STATE│meant is a show of Significant and Powerful Jewelry. It is an opportunity for jewelry artists to speak out on challenging subjects and raise money for organizations significant to them.Danaca Design website
The shock twist is recent news to me too. As I started to type I realised I didn’t have it in me to ask you to vote for, or otherwise approve of, my piece on a Facebook-mediated platform. Social media exhaustion, anyone?
I do want you to see the show, and if you fancy, read up on the reasons why all of these dedicated and talented makers decided to make a work that makes a statement. So please check that part out, that’s both really interesting, and, I think, relatively worthy.
Yeah, there’s a long list of not-for-profit organisations that are getting a cut of these works if/when they sell. They have been chosen by the artists involved and in many cases the causes reflect the works they are attached to.
My work if sold will benefit the Aboriginal Legal Service – Western Australia, who
“provides legal advice and representation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Western Australia, in Criminal, Family, Civil and Human Rights Law with additional services in community legal education, advocacy and the protection and promotion of human rights.”https://www.als.org.au/
They get an annual donation from me/my family, but this would be an opportunity to give them a significant bump in appreciation for the work they continue to do in, well, adversarial conditions.
Please check out the show, and if you need further incentive, enjoy the recent photo* of my ever-evolving COVID-19 hair style.
