More about that show later...
What really got me out here, though, is Lewton-Brain Foldform Competition news -- it's so exciting how the event has taken off in just over a year.
... and then please scroll down and see what I've been up to lately. <grn>
Accompanying the magazine is a wonderful online gallery that includes not only the winning pieces, but all the Jurors' Choice selections too. Readers can click each entry to view the full image with description, and views are tallied right on the page.
Many of the featured artists are members of the foldforming group that I admin on Facebook. If you are a metalsmith interested in foldforming, please join us there! (Note: read the "about" page before signing up. If your Facebook page doesn't show your metal work, you'll need to contact me.)
The other news I have is about me! A couple weeks ago I accepted a fantastic opportunity... I'm now the Acting Director of the Center for Metal Arts (CMA) in downstate New York. SO jazzed about this.
No lie, I completely fell in love with CMA in July 2011, on my very first visit. Here is my post about it; my first foldforming workshop with Charles Lewton-Brain. I loved the atmosphere, the people, the caliber of education they offer-- everything. I've been working on various projects with them ever since (and the Lewton-Brain Foldform Competition might be my favorite project EVER.)
This video was one of my first projects in the new position. It's a small window into a magical place. Hope you like it.
