NEW: Enameling Exhibit Opens at Worcester Center for Crafts Tonight

Thursday, February 21, 2013

 

An exhibition of enamel works by master-enamelist Judith Daner and her students opens at the Worcester Center for Crafts on February 21, 2013 at the Krikorian Gallery.

HONOR THY TEACHER: Works by Judith Daner and her Enameling Students honors the influence and the work of Daner and includes work by her and by artists who she has influenced as a teacher and mentor. The exhibition will be on view through March 16, 2013.

Participating artists in addition to Daner include Mary Aroian, Jennifer Carey, Jane Fama, Becky Fellows, Mimi Grenier, Peter Grigg, Judith Lane, Fran Nickerson, Vicki Roberts, Sheila Rankin, Sarah Nelson, Diane Seiler, and Judith Sternbane.

“The learning process never ends either for the beginner or the experienced enamellist,” said Daner. “I hope visitors will find the work inspiring and be a bit awed by enamel’s endless possibilities.”

Enamels can be of epic scale as well as small jewelry pieces. The metal is covered with finely ground enamel (both opaque and transparent) to produce brilliant coloration when fired in a kiln.

Daner studied at Parson's School of Design, the Art Students League, and received her BFA with top honors from Pratt Institute. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums nationally and the Biennale Internationale, France.

In addition to teaching at the Worcester Center for Crafts, Daner has taught at the Brookfield Craft Center, De Cordova Museum School, Snowfarm (Williamstown, MA), Metalwerx (Waltham) and the West Palm Beach Enameling Guild. She has also been the recipient of several special commissions from the following institutions: Union Market Bank, Watertown, Massachusetts; Leominster Savings Bank, Leominster, Massachusetts; and First National Bank of Boston, Boston, Massachusetts.

For more information or to arrange a photo opportunity, please contact Honee A. Hess, Executive Director of the Crafts Center at [email protected] or 508.753.8183, x. 3002.
