Brooching the Subject
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 6th year for the challenge, which encourages 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 theme is Brooching the Subject – Artists receive a box of mystery materials and rules of the challenge. An inspirational object was included in each box to inspire the subject of the overall piece. An example might be a clown figure, the subject could be a comedy, circus, make-believe, etc. The object must be either incorporated in the piece or alongside it.
The live and virtual exhibit opens on 10/22 and closes on 11/26.
