January 12th, 13th, & 14th, 2018


In keeping with ECU’s tradition of innovation and cross-disciplinary practices the theme for this year will be Deconstruct/Reconstruct. By deconstructing the boundaries of traditional processes, perceptions of value or the idea of adornment itself, each of the artists we’ve selected have redefined what it means to be a metalsmith. Some have literally reconstructed disparate materials to create a new whole, while others have pushed the limits of metalsmithing processes to new heights.

This year’s organizers:

Co-chairs: Adam Atkinson & Nadia Massoud

Exhibitions Chair: Carolina Sephra Reyes

Social Media and Marketing Chair: Carolyn A Buss
