    My Guests this Thursday, February 20th at 3 p.m. PST on MetalSmith BenchTalk will be artist Harriete Estel Berman and Betty Talbott, the Director of the Ohio Craft Museum and Artistic Director of the Ohio Designer Craftsmen.


    They will be discussing the idea of “grassroots collections" and the upcoming program “Collectors, Collection and You”  at the SNAG Professional Development Seminar. The 2014 SNAG conference Grains to Gold will be held in Minneapolis, MN in April 2014.

    Are you making your mark?
    What is the impact of the maker mark on value?
    Have you considered the importance of having your work in a collection?
    What about collections for your guild or academic institution.


    You can count on the PSD to cover this from the ground up and give you lots of information that you can readily put into action the next day.


    Our hot topics include:



    How to establish value for your artwork;
    How exactly does the secondary market work;
    Facts about collecting metalwork within an academic setting or guild; 
    What you can do to attract a collector's eye; and
    Essential background work all artists must take care of before attempting to place work into a museum collection.

    Metalsmith BenchTalk with Harriete Estel Berman

    in Art

    My Guest on Thursday, August 22nd at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk is artist and writer Harriete Estel Berman, who returns to the show to discuss the crucial issue of "The GOOD, The BAD, and the UGLY in the Age of the Internet" and how that applies to fellow artists.   About: The art and craft community has been impacted by the Internet and digital technologies. What are the ethical and legal issues surrounding tutorials, workshops, or sharing information that you did not write? What is the impact of the workshop imposter on the craft community? Has our “desire for attention” and “carelessness provided no one will notice” created an environment that prefers not to discuss difficult issues? Respecting intellectual property needs to part of the discussion for the healthy growth of crafts.    To view Harriete's lecture on this topic prior to listening to the show (recommended), visit: http://www.slideshare.net/Harriete/the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly-in-the-age-of-the-internet.   To view Harriete's RECOMMENDATIONS from The GOOD, The BAD, and The UGLY In The Age of The Internet, visit: http://askharriete.typepad.com/ask_harriete/2013/03/recommendations-from-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly-in-the-age-of-the-internet.html.   For more information on Harriete and her work, visit: http://www.harriete-estel-berman.info.

    Metalsmith BenchTalk Past Faves w/ Berman, Cooperman, Martin

    in Art

    This Thursday, May 16 at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk we'll be airing one of our favorite past episodes from the archives with Harriete Estel Berman, Andy Cooperman, and Brigitte Martin. They discuss the Professional Development Seminar at Meta-Mosaic, the 2013 SNAG conference taking place this week in Toronto, Canada.    About: This year's theme is: SACRED COW, PURPLE COW, CASH COW. The sacred cows of craft marketing and design are lame and beginning to stumble. From gallery to studio sale, exhibition space to craft show, the audiences for contemporary craft aren’t responding to old-school notions of display and marketing. They are looking for an entirely different buying experience.   We need to re-energize and reconnect to our existing markets and access new ones. We need to find a more innovative approach to display and an interactive marketing model that offers the experience of craft. We need to use smarter advertising and build visibility in new and unexpected places. Our websites need to function across the spectrum from desktops to smart phones, tablets, and televisions.   We need to become the purple cow, the one that is unexpected and stands out from the herd – the cow that people notice. The idea of the purple cow was set forth by the marketing entrepreneur Seth Godin.   Speakers include: Lara Bazant, Natasha Granastein, Justin D. Hartzman, Rachel Timmins, and Colleen from Clockwork Zero.   For more info, visit: http://www.snagmetalsmith.org/conferences/meta-mosaic/programming/professional-development-seminar/.

    Metalsmith BenchTalk w/ Berman & Thompson on Shipping

    in Art

     
    My guests this Thursday, August 9th at 3 p.m. PDT/6EDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk are Harriete Estel Berman and French Thompson, who will discuss "The Ins and Outs of Shipping" for artists and makers. Ms. Berman was among a team of artist who presented the topic at this year's SNAG Professional Development Seminar in Scottsdale, AZ and on our show, they'll be distilling that information into a solid hour of shipping tips and tricks   About this year's SNAG PSD: Shipping artwork from point A to point B should be a pretty straight-forward proposition, but if you have ever shipped a fragile, valuable, large or small object, you know that getting it there can sometimes be like trying to sift through a bucket of eels. There are many shippers, many methods, and finding the right answers can be slippery work.   About Harriete: Harriete Estel Berman uses post consumer, recycled materials to construct artwork ranging from jewelry and teacups to entire lawns and sculpture with social commentary. Sculptures include domestic appliances remarking on the roles of women, the influence of advertising and commentary about our consumer society.    About French: French Thompson walked into the Denver Art Museum an English major and left an aspiring metalsmith. From that personal epiphany has grown an experiential gallery on the Main Street of Old Scottsdale.   For more info, visit http://www.harriete-estel-berman.info/profguidelines/ProfDevSeminar.html or www.frenchonmain.com.
