“It started with a community of makers who wanted to create in a radical new way,” says Marissa Saneholtz, one of the co-founders of the Smitten Forum. Every year since 2014, Marissa Saneholtz and Sara Brown have invited a new group of jewelers and metalsmiths to work side-by-side in a communal studio for a week. Over six years, the forum expanded in numbers and geographic area to encompass over 70 artists in several states. Call it a mobile artist colony,…

"I like challenging perceptions of an object, or how we create hierarchies of format,” says metalsmith Bryan Petersen. Art is constantly in flux—different mediums fall in and out of favor, dropping and adding qualifiers like “wearable” or “sculptural.” While earrings, necklaces, and brooches have ascended to artwork status, the belt buckle has been largely overlooked. In response, Petersen founded the World Champion Belt Buckle Competition. Since its founding in 2012, the competition has sought to upend outdated stereotypes. Utilizing the…

North Fourth Art Center
In Nathalie Daoust's Korean Dreams, the photographs, as the people of North Korea, are manipulated until the underlying truth is all but a blur. Nathalie Daoust has spent much of her career exploring the chimeric world of fantasy: the hidden desires and urges that compel people to dream, to dress up, to move beyond the bounds of convention and to escape from reality. With Korean Dreams, she is exploring this escapist impulse not as an individual choice, but as a…

Richard Levy Gallery
In the Project Room, the gallery presents Your reversed Berlin sphere, an interactive sculpture by critically acclaimed artist Olafur Eliasson. Typical of his work, this sculpture plays with viewer perception. As the circular element transitions from yellow to blue, depending on the time of day and the position of the viewer, the glass acts as both a mirror to your reflection and a prism to the world outside. Eliasson currently has a solo show at the Tate Modern in London.…

Obscura Gallery presents a solo exhibition with gallery artist Brigitte Carnochan of prints inspired by Emily Dickinson. Dickinson's poems are widely admired and her life mythologized and given that her poetry is unusual in its structure and handling of language—sometimes even opaque—what is it that attracts such interest and devotion? Much is owing to the richness and mystery of her imagery, especially those flowers that become the vivid metaphors for her thoughts on every subject. Her poems were gardens in…
