Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography – By Ursula Ilse-Neuman. Published to accompany an exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design, NY, this catalog is the first to examine the union of contemporary jewelry and the photographic image, demonstrating how each of these mediums is informed and enlarged by an engagement with the other. This book and more in this week’s news post.
SNAG members Emily Shaffer and Cara Romano are keeping a blog, called Contemporary Craft Forward, to record and share their year-long internship experience in Ellsworth, Maine. They are learning jewelry bench skills, arts administration and how to manage an art gallery. So far, their subjects include things like setting up a studio, tools, and craft shows. Their blog includes lots of photographs recording their experiences. Be sure to take a look!
