CALL FOR ENTRY V4 Deadline October 15th 2017

Jewelry Edition was started by Kat Cole and Laura Wood in 2012 as a new type of opportunity for early career artists to gain national exposure. Through our diverse network we are able to offer many different opportunities to the jewelers that we curate into JE. Over the last three years JE has represented 18 artists and traveled their work to different locations including galleries, conferences, institutions, and public spaces each year.  These artists have gone on to gain national representation and prosper in their individual careers. Volume 4 will shift from exclusively emerging artists to a more diverse range of makers at varying points of their careers. The collection will feature 6 makers and a smaller more focused grouping of work by each artist.  We are seeking a collection, series, or grouping of work that is visually very cohesive and distinctive.
In addition to the Volume 4 application we are offering the opportunity for a scholarship. This scholarship will include a spot  in JE V4, the option to participate in the annual Smitten Forum 2018, and $500 cash.
To be considered you will need to write in 300 words: How being included in Jewelry Edition will impact your career, what you will do with the cash award, and a week-long residency with Smitten Forum.
