Surface Matters - Grit & Gloss
January 21–March 4, 2021
Surface becomes that final critical step in an effective and convincing concept. In recent years, enamelists have explored finish in more innovative and creative ways than was seen in the entire history of enameling. From cracks to underfired gritty surfaces, from matte to traditional highly finished gloss, the surface of an enamel is no longer a standard step, rather it is a conscious choice the artist makes. Grit or Gloss explores two of the extremes available to enamelists. Any, all or somewhere between can and will be investigated in this exhibition.
The Enamelist Society is the leading professional organization dedicated to promoting the art of enameling. They support students and professionals through Achievement Awards, Conferences, juried and invitational exhibitions, workshops, grants and more.
