A visit yesterday to see The Art of Gold exhibition at the
University of Richmond, Richmond, Virginia was a jaw dropping
experience. The curator Michael W. Monroe did a fantastic job on the
selections. Please all of you that are in geographic range make an
effort to see the mighty representation of studio goldsmiths. A
catalog is available.
The Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) organized the tour.
The opening location was the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento,
California. After Richmond the show travels to The Arkansas Arts
Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, the Mint Museum of Craft and Design
in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the Anchorage Museum of History and
Art in Anchorage, Alaska.
This is a once in a lifetime experience.
