Events
  • Artist Anna Craycroft, of the current exhibition Tuning the Room in Ben Maltz Gallery, in discussion with artist and curator Micah Silver.

  • Emily Thorpe's art work addresses the twisting formation of memory through spatial relations and moments of domesticity. She will be presenting a solo exhibition for her Graduate Thesis at The Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design, on view February 20 to February 25, 2017. There will be a closing reception on Saturday, February 25, 6-9pm.

  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

Bio/Affiliation: 

Susan Beningfield jewelry

Susan Beningfield is an architect and designer of fine jewelry.  Her South African upbringing imbued in her a love of nature and a clear preference for creating bold and elegant design work. 

“The process of designing fills my soul in the deepest way.”  Susan Beningfield

Her enterprising spirit has taken her from study and practice in Johannesburg and Paris working for Daly Genik Architects, Paragon Architects, and AREP, to post-professional architectural training at Princeton University in 2001, and finally to Los Angeles in 2003, where she designed directly for the world-renowned architect Frank Gehry. 

It was during this time that her exposure to new technologies in manufacturing combined with 3D computer modeling expanded reignited her affinity for working with precious metals that began in the 90’s. She saw an opportunity to innovate in the field of jewelry design – exploring the sculptural freedom offered by pioneering techniques to create pieces of extraordinary beauty and originality. 

She launched her company in 2009 producing custom made jewelry that is unmistakably sculptural, reflecting her years of practice as a design architect and her fascination with natural lines and sensual forms and her view of space as a material which shapes the object. Susan teaches 3D Digital Design in the Product Design Department at Otis College of Art and Design.
