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.

This interview is a preview of the PDS but the information will not be repeated at the Conference. This is a unique opportunity ONLY on Metalsmith Bench Talk.

  • 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.
