July 29 – August 26 | Sandra J. Blain Gallery
The Enamelist Society’s mission is to educate and encourage artists and collectors about the beauty of enameled art. Combining heat from a kiln or torch with colored glass, the enamelist engages in a mystical, magical, and transformational alchemy of turning sand into glass on metal. The result is a reflective, vibrant color expressed in each artist’s vision. Viewers are invited to gain inspiration from the exquisite craft and creativity showcased in the works in Alchemy4, the Enamelist Society’s 16th International Juried Exhibition and 12th Juried Student Exhibition. More information about the Enamelist Society can be found at: www.enamelistsociety.org
The Alchemy4 International and Student Exhibitions collectively showcase 150 exquisite jewelry, objects, and mixed media sculptures and installations made by 98 artists. The exhibit is being featured in three venues – after the exhibit closes at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts it will then travel to the Ohio Craft Museum in Columbus, OH, and then to the Metal Museum in Memphis, TN.
