…with moves like MacGyver is a juried show that will examine the creative process at which a maker will go through to complete a piece that they did not originally have the tools necessary to do so.
Makers + smiths are a crafty bunch! This exhibition will highlight this as well as examine the creative practices of 15-25 individuals, giving viewers a glimpse at the processes these artists use to improvise, exquisitely craft, or get downright inventive to get the job done.
The exhibition will feature two pieces by each maker selected: one jewelry object or small sculptural piece displayed alongside a specialized tool that was created by the maker for the sole purpose of completing that object, with the premise that neither item would exist without the other.
Our hope is that a diverse group of makers will be shown in an effort to highlight the wide range of materials and ways of making that the field of metalsmithing and jewelry design represents.
Jurors: Tim Lazure and Randy Long
Entry deadline: October 1st
