Healing in the present is connected across and through time and space. Opening in any given moment to the ancestors, their presence and their stories, which exist in our physical and psychical landscape, informs an ethical responsibility to a multidimensional relational, co-creative process. The stories and experiences of my ancestors inform the nature of what is out of balance and in need of restorative action in my experience of the effects of trauma in the present. Standing in the present, my ancestors before me making the trail, the path opens and a new foward is co-created.

Thank you also for being part of the romanianjewelryweek community, Arielle!

Posted withregram • ariellenbrackett Working on my display for romanianjewelryweek which is happening the first week of October. I so wish I could be there in person to see the work. I really like how the display is going and will definitely be incorporating similar elements into my regular display. I hope all the work arrives safely! I’ll share more information when the event gets a little bit closer. Thank you romanianjewelryweek for the opportunity to show work at your event.

Posted withregram • jewelryopencalls Deadline September 16th! Apply for the Verdant Bodies exhibition at armory_jewelrymetals armoryartcenter

Posted withregram • armory_jewelrymetals #REPOST armoryartcenter 🔊🗣️💎Open call for art jewelry and metal work at the Armory Art Center! Verdant Bodies is a juried exhibition open to any artist working in art jewelry, adornment, and functional metalsmithing formats. This exhibition will offer insight as to how makers of the art jewelry and metalsmithing field interpret their environments. Considerations of environment include, but are not limited to, physical “natural” or curated spaces, sociopolitical environments, and spaces within which various relationships occur. The intent of Verdant Bodies is to raise topics such as ecology, evolution, species relationships, botanical, and cultural implications. This in-person exhibition will be juried by contemporary jewelry artist, Diane Falkenhagen.⁠

Applications are now open and are due by September 16th at midnight. Verdant Bodies will be on view October 27-November 18 at the Armory Art Center. For more information, visit our link in bio!⁠
