The James Renwick Alliance, Washington Guild of Goldsmiths, and Montgomery College partner to present J. Fred Woell: An American Vision with a question and answer with director Richard Kaine. Join us for this free movie screening that has been capturing craft appreciators around the country.
J. Fred Woell: An American Vision (2017, 51 min) captures the essence of a political artist who believed deeply in the power of the creative spirit. In 1965 J. Fred Woell took his cast silver jewelry to New York City galleries and was turned down flat. “Use gold or forget it,” they said. As a confirmed contrarian, Woell vowed to make jewelry from materials of no value — and the term “anti-jewelry” was born. Nearly 50 years later he was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of North American Goldsmiths.
