    OFFBEAT BIJOU: ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS, PROCESSES AND IDEAS IN JEWELRY
    Posted by: Florida CraftArt Gallery
    Deadline: Fri, November 30th, 2018

    Florida CraftArt, along with the curators, invites artists who make jewelry using nontraditional methods, materials or concepts to apply for exhibition. In the current age where more materials and methods are available and interchangeable between media, artists have the opportunity to repurpose and reconfigure established techniques. We are looking for examples of contemporary, forward-thinking jewelry in a variety of materials and styles. Jewelry may be any wearable form (necklace, brooch, ring, bracelet, earrings, etc.).

    ENTRY FEE $35 for up to 5 works; FCA members $25

    Integrating Stone and Metal with Michael Boyd    Dec 1-4th from 10-5pm each day

    "Are you passionate about gemstones but frustrated that all the stones you see are cut in shapes that don’t fit your work? Are you tired of the same old oval cabs and round brilliants? Are you ready to retake control of your own designs? Sign up for this inspirational workshop and learn how to design using stone as a medium–not only an accessory!

    Watch step-by-step demonstrations on how to cut and polish basic shapes and forms in stone. Then, combining metal work with lapidary, explore alternative, innovative ways of joining stone with metal by piercing, drilling, riveting, layering, grooving, laminating, tabbing, trapping and more. You may complete several projects, leading you to the next level of accomplishment."Tracey Carswell

    ST. LOUIS ARTISTS’ GUILD

    Clayton, MO

    About the exhibition: For this exhibition the St. Louis Artists’ Guild 
    seeks artwork that detects the structure of the physical world both seen 
    and unseen, imagined and observed. We are fascinated in how nature 
    repeats itself with a diversity of forms from the micro to the macro. 
    How do you capture this phenomena? This is an all-media exhibition 
    looking for works of both abstraction and realism. We are particularly 
    interested in how artists’ capture form from a well-timed photograph, to 
    the manipulation of paint, drawing media, fabric and clay, or a mixture 
    of all of them.
