We’re in New Orleans this week for the SNAG conference, Nexus: A Connection of Ideas. We’ll be announcing the winners of our 2nd annual Halstead Design Challenge: Memento on Thursday evening during the gallery crawl at RHINO Contemporary Crafts Gallery. If you aren’t attending the conference, watch our Facebook page and Instagram for the big reveal. This post includes a few of the pieces that will be on display at RHINO.
200 kits were sold to benefit SNAG. Each participating artist incorporated a photograph and at least half of the kit components into a brooch. A juried exhibition of 30 entrants is on display at RHINO. The photograph below is an illustration of the kit components. Artists were free to add any other elements to their brooches.
Each year, we’re blown away by the creativity and ingenuity that is represented in the contest entries. This year was no different! It was very hard to judge. Special thanks to Brigitte Martin and Samantha Skelton for wading through the entries and congratulations to the top 3…to be revealed very soon!
