As an annual feature of Metalsmith magazine, the 2017 Exhibition in Print focuses on the metalwork tradition and the capacity for restoration by highlighting artists from across the United States as well as Germany, Belgium, and Finland. The exhibiting artists in this companion exhibition give renewed life to objects and materials through innovative art expression rooted in traditional metalsmithing mediums such as silver, copper, and gold, and nontraditional found objects such as horsehair, syringes, soap, and credit cards. Besides prolonging the life of the object, the act of repair also speaks to our yearning to make things right and to make things whole again.

Curated by Stuart Kestenbaum, Maine’s poet laureate and an honorary fellow of the American Craft Council, Exhibition in Print: Repair and Renewal features jewelry, sculpture and non-traditional wearable objects by emerging and established metalsmithing professionals and exposes the public to a variety of techniques and mediums.
