“Soulcology In Metal” Exhibit


Guilford Art Center is pleased to announce Soulcology: An Exhibition in Metal, a national, juried exhibition of a wide variety of works by contemporary metal artists. The exhibit will be on view June 6-July 26, 2014.

Organized by GAC metalsmithing and jewelrymaking instructor Lanette Barber, Soulcology will display a broad spectrum of the many works that can be made of metal, expressively displaying the many techniques used to conform metal into items from the organic to the angular, from jewelry to sculpture, functional art and more.

“‘Soulcology’ is a word to describe the emotional and psychological component of how personal lives affect artists’ work, design, and process,” explains Barber. “This show will express the rejuvenation that occurs from life’s distractions. This awakening brings us to new places in our minds and therefore transforms the work in many different ways.”

Juror for the exhibit is Robert Dancik, renowned metal artist and teacher who has exhibited his jewelry and sculpture in museums and galleries across the US and in Europe, Japan, and Australia. He has taught workshops at art centers in the US and abroad for more than 30 years.

The opening reception for Soulcology is Friday, June 13, 6-8pm; it is free and open to the public. Admission is free. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday 10am-4pm, Sunday 12-4pm.
