InFlux 2017: Advanced Work in Jewelry and Metal Arts
On March 2, 2017, the JEM Club held the opening reception for its third annual group show of advanced student work at the Cannery Gallery. The exhibition, titled InFlux, provides a platform for all students enrolled in Jewelry and Metal Arts classes, whether they are a JEM-declared major or taking a course as an elective, to showcase their current work. Not only do they have the exciting opportunity to share their craft outside of the classroom and studio, they are also able to learn the intricate details that go into gallery installations.
Selected by Director Charlene Modena, faculty, and JEM Club officers, the displayed work demonstrates the breadth of advanced technique and creative development taught by the department, as well as variations of wearable and sculptural forms executed in a diverse range of media. InFlux has been instrumental in promoting the department’s emerging talent and bolstering students’ confidence and professional experience.
