Arts and Crafts Jewelry and Metalwork

 

Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Boston Made: Arts and Crafts Jewelry and Metalwork” presents the story of this community over a 30-year period, from its inception at the beginning of the 20th century to the stock market crash of 1929 that signaled its decline. “Boston Made” is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on the Arts and Crafts metal smiths in Boston and highlights the contributions of newly empowered women artists like Josephine Hartwell Shaw and Elizabeth Copeland, among others. While adhering to the ideas and ideals of the international Arts and Crafts movement, Boston artists developed a signature aesthetic that set their work apart from the broader movement. “Boston Made” brings together more than 75 works—including jewelry, tableware, decorative accessories, and design drawings—that illuminate the passions and philosophies of this interwoven community of jewelry-makers and metal smiths. Join Curator Meghan Melvin for a discussion as part of Boston Design Week on April 3!

Boston Society of Architects 

at the BSA Space

290 Congress Street, Suite 200, Boston, MA 02210

www.architects.org/bsaspace/exhibitions/multiply

Taught by Jared Ramsdell AIA, of Touloukian Touloukian Inc., Multi(ply), a design class taught at Wentworth Institute of Technology, allows fourth-year architecture students to focus on everyday objects, including lamps and pavilions. The purpose of the course is to promote research in how geometries can be fashioned with simple tools and materials to increase the performance and efficiency of each constructed object. For this exhibition, students have created light fixture shades that look at how lighting output would directly affect the physical environment through its variability, movement, and comfort.
