Guest Curator, Stuart Kestenbaum

Metalsmith has opened a call for related work for the 2017 “Exhibition in Print.” Deadline: January 15, 2017. See all the details>>>

Besides prolonging the life of the object, repair also speaks to our yearning to make things right again, to make things whole. Repairing is more than fixing—it’s a metaphorical way to look at the role of makers. When we repair things, are we also fixing ourselves?  Can giving renewed life to objects and materials—perhaps ones that have had other functions—renew us as well?  How does the world look when we say that what is broken can be made whole again, using ingenuity and imagination?

For the 2017 “Exhibition in Print” Repair and Renewal: Making Things Whole Again, curator Stuart Kestenbaum is seeking work that addresses these questions.  While the work does not need to have been repaired, it should have the spirit of repair, and be fueled by a desire to extend an object’s value and usefulness.

SNAGneXt 2016 Education Dialogue

In May 2016, the Education Dialogue held during the SNAGneXt conference addressed some current questions facing many of us. It brought together different levels of educators and students from many aspects of the jewelry and metals field. This included those involved with teaching studios, art and craft centers, high schools, colleges and universities. The event featured small group sessions to brainstorm and share ideas. We have posted the discussion group answers here.
