Last week’s fantastic presentation on Social Media for Artists was a great introduction to the world of selling on Social Media. Next we’ll dive into the world of Instagram as MBMAG presents another free Zoom event for members. Nicole will share her secrets for selling jewelry on Instagram. With 115,000 followers on her Instagram account, Nicole has shown that social media can indeed extend a jeweler’s reach.
The presentation will be held via Zoom. You must pre-register, and you must be a member of MBMAG to attend. Once you are registered, we will send you the link and password for the Zoom meeting. Our Zoom room is limited to 99 participants, plus Nicole. First come, first served!
Hammering Away-Art, Education, and Environment December 11, 2019, 6:30 p.m. Cabrillo College Jewelry Room VAPA 3001
Presenters Angela Gleason and Lynn Guenther will talk about their work and how they make meaningful lives with their creative practice.
Angela will talk about her work and her SCRAP (Santa Cruz Recycled Art Program) exhibit, opening December 6.
Angela has always been fascinated with found objects, recycling, and re-use and often works with strong political intention. She is currently finishing an Artist Residency with SCRAP utilizing a vast array of unexpected materials from the Resource Recovery Facility at Dimeo Lane to create art with environmental, educational, and social statements.
Lynn Guenther will show a short video about her teaching trip to Rosebud Reservation and talk a bit about other educational programs that she is involved in.
Lynn is collecting tools and donations to complete the “tool kit” she left for the students to use at the school on Rosebud Reservation. Below is what they are missing. You can bring any donations to the meeting.
Lynn says, “Fortunately some artists were very generous with materials last year, but the kids are using them and they could always use more if people want to donate any extra stuff they have. 20 or 18 gauge copper would be helpful, too, for bracelets.”
15-20 design stamps (expensive, $8 each!) alphabet stamps number stamps 3 ball pein hammers rawhide hammer or delrin drill drill bits 3 more saws 3 bench pins saw blades bracelet mandrel cutting shears gloves patina a few more pliers, wire cutters, and files Copper, brass, nickel, stones and beads Cash donations towards tools and materials are also welcome.

3:30 LYNDA WATSON’S PRESENTATION on her TRIP to CHINA
Featured Artist Lynda Watson will give a talk and slide presentation on her recent trip to China. It was an amazing experience and you will enjoy seeing metal art.
“After a trip to Southeastern China in 2008, Mary Hu was invited the Chinese government to bring 10 professional metalsmiths/jewelers to China for the purpose of observing, advising, and showing work to students and faculty at Chinese University metals programs.
We were also there to study Maio jewelry and costume in its original, indigenous form and as it was being produced for export as tourist goods. I will show images of the artisans making both fine silver and nickel silver traditional jewelry as well as photos of museum pieces and where the Miao live and work.” -Lynda
