Artists have the ability to interpret the world around us in creative, imaginative and challenging ways. Ethical Metalsmiths exhibitions seek to highlight the ability of makers to uniquely interpret specific challenges related to mining and material sourcing.
Artists cleverly use conceptual tools like metaphor, symbolism and material choice to engage an idea. Ethical Metalsmiths intentionally organizes exhibitions with challenging themes. This gives artists the opportunity to explore new topics in their work and exposes viewers to an unexpected mode of communication.
Tackling mining issues presents all of us with a daunting task. In addition to actively demanding ethically and transparently souced materials jewelers, metalsmiths and artists can also take on the dauting task by doing what they do best - making art-work.
