The Metal Design program stood out at Alchemy 3, the 15th Biennial Juried International Enamel Exhibition, sponsored by the Enamelist Society. This year, the jurors reviewed 224 submissions from 94 entrants and accepted 95 pieces by 68 artists for the show. The selected works from our program are from the following members: Ken Bova (assistant professor), Mi-Sook Hur (professor), Barbara McFadyen (graduate student), Hosanna Rubio (graduate student), Sarah Loch-Test (graduate student), Abigail Heuss (MFA, alumni), Marissa Saneholtz (MFA, alumni), and Nan Lopata (BFA, alumni).
Among those selected works, three works were highlighted with the following awards:
• Mi-Sook Hur, Prize Winner for her work “Feather Trace” in professional category
One of Jurors, Jim Malenda mentioned in his statement in the catalogue: “ One entry that stood out, in particular for its drawn and painterly qualities was “Feather Trace”. The color was simple, black/white with focused images and a minimal approach to the metal work, which included only the necessary attachments (prongs) to secure the piece.”
