By the artist:
"I like a pictorial language that follows some of the same guidelines of written language; metaphor, personification and entendres. I am a storyteller and love the art of writing original narratives as I embrace the ensuing challenges that accompany working them into composition, not as the written word but as dimensional elements that ‘tell’ the story. The decision to title a piece has always created tensions in me as I work through myriad options, tossing them aside as I burrow further into what it is I want to say, hence some pieces are titled and some are not."
Thanks to the Exhibition Committee chaired by Sharon Massey, The Enamelist Society again has an extraordinary roster of jurors for Alchemy 5: The Enamelist Society Biennial International JuriedExhibition and the BiennialJuried Student Exhibition. Our jurors, Kathleen Browne, Jeannine Falino, and Hee Joo Kim, come with sterling credentials and varied experiences. Click the link below for short profiles of each one with a few images of work. We are fortunate to have the expertise of these jurors and we are looking forward to another stunning exhibition. Remember – the deadline for submissions is November 30, 2018.
