Bethesda, MD – The Washington Guild of Goldsmiths is proud to be presenting a juried exhibition of jewelry, hollowware, sculpture, and functional art created by guild members. The exhibitors in the show include nationally recognized artists in addition to members who are exhibiting for the first time. Jurors Andy Cooperman and Namu Cho judged the entries from the actual pieces not images resulting in an exhibition that will delight all viewers.
Some of the exciting work in this show includes nationally recognized, Torpedo Factory Artist, Barbro Eriksdotter Gendell. Her Emergence Series – New Growth pendant, pictured on the front, illustrates not only exemplary design but also precision in fabrication. Dorothea Stover’s exquisite enamel cup, also on the front, is not only well executed but illustrates a whimsical theme to enchant all ages.
