Falling Out of the Box Opening Reception @ The Jansen Art Center
Oct 18 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Thursday, October 18 will be the Opening Reception for the “Falling Out of the Box Jewelry Challenge” at the Jansen Art Center. This year’s challenge is inspired by torch songs and will involve creating a wearable piece of metal jewelry. Artists of all skill level are encouraged to participate – the challenge involves the fabrication of metal jewelry from supplies provided in the mystery Material Box. In order to participate, artists register by purchasing a Material Box. The boxes will be mailed to participating artists the first week of September, and the deadline to return completed projects is October 12, 2018.

This year there are over 35 participants, 14 of which participated last year. Two of the top four artists from 2017 are back again to create and compete! There are artists from all over, including Australia, Alberta, Arkansas, Alaska, Canada, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, Tennessee, Texas and ten different cities in the state of Washington. Each artist will get five weeks to complete their piece using the identical materials given in their box, who will then get evaluated by a panel of judges and then by the attendees for the People’s Choice Awards.

There will be live music from Paul Klein, a beautiful pianist. The Firehall Cafe will be open and serving beer and wine, with delicious foods like sandwiches, soups and salads. Feel free to walk around the center and enjoy the four other Fall Exhibits, featuring incredible artists like Cynthia Camlin.
