Artists emerge in different ways and at different points in their lives; a number of jewelry artists begin their careers later in life. Join Mary Fissell and Mary Raivel, the curators of "Coming of Age,” a pop-up exhibition at the 2019 SNAG conference devoted to work by artists who began their study of art jewelry and metalsmithing as “next career artists.” They will explore these artists’ variety of educational pathways, life experiences, and artistic objectives. They will also share their own stories, how they developed the idea for the exhibition, and some of their favorite pieces from it.
Location: Silvera Jewelry School, Berkeley, CA
