jewellery for the literate

"QUOTATION" is an upcoming fancypants jewellery and metalwork show to check out or submit your work to (if you are a Canadian maker of fancypants jewellery/metalwork).

This is a juried exhibition that will open on March 26th, 2006 at
Zilberschmuck Art-Jewellery (1852 Queen Street East). Here's a quotation (har har) about the show about the show:

"The exhibition challenges metal artists to explore the formal and conceptual manifestations of the words and substance of a famous quotation that has inspired them emotionally and intellectually. What does the quotation convey about the author or the subject? How can these be expressed in a visual and tactile form? "

The judges for "QUOTATION" are Niki Kavakonis, past president of the Metal Arts Guild of Canada, author Russel Smith, and Ken Vickerson, associate professor at the Ontario College of Art and Design. Entries should be postmarked March 1st (that's today, kids) or hand delivered by March 10, 2006. Submission rules and entry forms available on-line.

The exhibition runs until May 6, 2006 with an opening reception on March 30th from 7-10pm.
