CALL FOR ENTRIES: JEWELRY/METALS NOW NATIONAL JURIED ART EXHIBITION
The juror is inviting artists to submit work that encompasses traditional techniques and new technologies. The integration of the old and new is ceaselessly intriguing. It is the foundation of cultural advancement throughout history and raises the question how does jewelry design and metalsmithing add to this conversation? The juror encourages participants in the show to consider documentation such as editorial photography and video to document the action of pieces when appropriate. Editorial context is highly important to understanding a jewelry object. It is not simply enough to display the object, but the obligation of the artist to integrate an understanding of how the object must be worn and interact with the body or environment. This exhibition will comprise a body of exciting and thought-provoking work that embraces craftsmanship, new technologies, and contemporary themes that reflect the current state of our society.
Juror: Robly A. Glover is a Professor of Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. He studied Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing at Indiana State University, in Terre Haute, Indiana, where he received his BFA in 1983. He went on to pursue his graduate work at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, earning his MFA in 1987. Professor Glover has exhibited his work extensively in the United States since 1975, being included in over 200 national juried craft exhibitions throughout his career. His work has been included in many publications including American Craft Magazine, and a feature article and cover for Metalsmith magazine, in winter 2002. His work has been collected by many major museums including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England, Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, TX, The Yale Silver Collection, Newhaven, CT, the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL, and the Wustum Museum of Fine Arts, Racine, WI, among others.
