Spotlight On This is How I Remember It – Amy Tavern recently completed a residency at the Penland School of Crafts, an experience that affected her work in countless ways. Through self-guided study and exploration, Amy discovered her process and honed her identity as a studio jeweler over the course of three years. For her last year, she created a substantial body of work based on her own history with jewelry. In her Spotlight talk, Amy will discuss how she examined her craft and will share the details behind the jewelry she created for her first solo exhibition, "This is How I Remember It." Finding A Way – Working through college, a Penland Core Fellowship, and now as an artist apprentice, Andrew is finding the path to sustain his work. He will relate how important it is to continue producing and how to motivate yourself though your own art. Through rejection and revelation, the path of a young artist is tough and rewarding at the same time. My Work, My Job – Allyson's experiences transitioning from jewelry student to designer in the fashion industry in New York City. She delves deeper into considering how jewelry functions and what her personal priorities are as a maker. Like many others, Allyson has struggled to find a way to continue her own work, while so much of her time is devoted to making someone else's.
