Carolyn Benesh - October 13, 2012

 Showing from September 8 through October 27, the exhibition is curated by Carolyn Benesh, Coeditor of Ornament Magazine, an international magazine on wearable art also based in California. Redefining the San Andreas Faultline will demonstrate how California's creative edge in art and design, dating from the mid-twentieth century, includes the individualistic characteristics of women studio jewelers who challenge themselves through their work by experimenting and redefining the possibilities of jewelry, its role and meaning, into the second decade of the twenty-first century. 

The lecture is on October 13, 2012

Talk start at 6pm, reception 5-7pm 

At Craft in America Study Center:

The 'big reveal' is always exciting
First-time visitors, one a jewelry student, explored the Study Center were excited to learn about our Library of unique books and magazines on Craft.
Everybody spent an afternoon focused on experimentation, meditation and inspiration from eachother and the craft and art around them !
