FUSION: Collision / Integration
Exhibition of work by members of the Metal Arts Guild, Northern California Enamel Guild, & ACCI Gallery
October – November 21, 2014
1652 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley CA 94709
Fusion” is intense – it throbs with the energy, creativity, and diversity of elements thrust together. As metal artists, fusion is the essence of our work. We struggle to fuse the concept and the reality; the union of disparate elements; the individual and the social. We struggle and we delight.
For the 2014 MAG / NCEG/ ACCI All-Member show, all members of the Metal Arts Guild (MAG), Northern California Enamel Guild (NCEG), and ACCI Gallery are invited to create jewelry and sculptural works that explore the boundaries, integration / collision, and diversity of Fusion. Jewelry, sculpture, conceptual pieces, and works that explore every aspect of Fusion are welcome.
