Bruce Metcalf lecture

The American Craft Council's Summer in the City Salon Series continues with a July 24th lecture Connect / (Dis)Connect featuring Bruce Metcalf & Chanel Kennebrew.
Explore the complicated relationships among the broad spectrum of craft makers today in this dialogue between jeweler, educator and writer Bruce Metcalf and Chanel Kennebrew of Junkprints, an indie craft artist, graphic designer and Etsy seller. July 24, 6-7 p.m., reception to follow. The Summer in the City Salon Series is made possible by the support of Leatrice S. Eagle, with additional support from Etsy. The event will take place at the American Craft Council located at 72 Spring street in NYC, 6th floor.

Some of you may remember the drama surrounding the Savannah SNAG conference and the debates that followed on Imogene's blog where Metcalf was front and center. This should prove to be an interesting dialog about the intersection of fine and indie craft. I'm sooo there.

Wow - thanks for sharing this - I've just spent the afternoon catching up on the deep and far and wide conversation at Imogene's blog... don't know how I missed it the first time around! Much food for thought - I'll totally be there.
