Susan Myers’ witty metal work, next on artblog radio

sponsored

Susan Myers is a visual artist and metalsmith in Philadelphia who makes beautiful objects out of discarded wedding presents like those engraved silver tea trays you find in thrift shops.  There’s humor in Myers’ work and questioning of values.   Susan graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University and has an MFA from Syracuse University.  Her work was included in the recent “2000 Years of Sculpture” exhibit at Fleisher-Ollman Gallery. Her solo show at the Museum of Ornamental Metal in Memphis last year was called “potently witty” and full of ambiguity and ambivalence.  Here’s a quick sample of our talk. Next Monday listen to the full episode.
