Upcoming Group Exhibition "Money"
I am pleased to participate in the upcoming juried exhibit "Money" at Hera Gallery in RI.
This exhibition will present artwork that reflects upon the influence that money has upon our society, whether it is the artists personal relationship with money, reflections upon current economic status, or money as material, the common denominator will be a critical look at MONEY.
The opening will be held on the evening of June 26th from 6:00 – 8:00pm.
I am looking forward to attending the opening night!

The second assignment was creating a ring inspired by a character. Our students chose a character that they were interested in and extracted the essence of the character.
This assignment helped students to explore fabricating a hollow construction from sheet metal, a technique that has endless possibilities in jewelry. The students focused on the basic hand skills of soldering, scoring, piercing, sawing, filing, sanding and bending. Thank you all for finishing this project! Great job everyone!
