EXHIBIT DATES: October 10 – November 29, 2019

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, October 10, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Falling Out of the Box is an annual jewelry and metal art design challenge and exhibit hosted by the Jansen Art Center Jewelry Studio. This is the 5th year for the challenge, which is designed to encourage artists to create something new, challenge themselves to use different materials and have fun sharing their work with a community of artists.

This year’s challenge, Lost but Not Forgotten, is inspired by the shape, color, and movement of lost earrings. The artist then creates a wearable piece of jewelry from it. Artists of all skill level are encouraged to participate – the challenge involves the fabrication of metal jewelry from supplies provided in the mystery Material Box. In order to participate, artists register by purchasing a Material Box and then have 5 weeks to complete a piece.

The exhibit begins on Thursday, October 10 with an Opening Reception at the Jansen Art Center from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM.

During the reception, many of the artists will be on hand to answer questions about their work; there will be Live Music in the Piano Lounge with Kevin Burt that is a part of the Lynden Music Festival. The Firehall Cafe will be open and serving from its full menu of food and drinks; and attendees will have the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Awards.

Congratulations to this year’s winners of Falling Out of the Box!
