Art Center to showcase metal, jewelry and fabric

-A A +A
By John Werenko

In his masterwork, “The Forge and the Crucible,” Mercea Eliade writes of the great chthonic force that is hidden deep within the bowels of the earth. That force is released with the mining of metals and minerals.The advance of civilization is linked to the power of metals. We speak of the bronze and iron ages, for example. The Art Center at Fuller Lodge (ACFL) demonstrates the power of metal with the show, “Creations in Metal and/or Jewelry.”Featuring 27 artists drawn from all over central and northern New Mexico, the exhibit includes artists who work in metal and/or jewelry, as well as artists represented at the Espaola Valley Fiber Arts Center.Sometimes curatorial skills are required to assemble an art exhibition or a museum collection. Most of the shows at the Art Center are ones that come about through a call for artists. Individual artists respond to this request and send images of their best work to be juried into the exhibition.Work is accepted or rejected based on the professional judgment of the juror, who presumably has expertise in the aesthetics of the genre, media, style or other aspects of the artwork presented.Another method is to invite one or more people to act as curators. This generally means that the artists for the exhibition are sought after by visitation to galleries or studios.
