Susan Cummins Talk at the Center
This past Saturday, art jewelry advocate Susan Cummins walked a full house through the wearable artworks of Joyce J. Scott. As the former owner of a gallery that dealt in fine art jewelry, a collector, and now the director of the Rotasa Foundation, Cummins had a unique access point for Scott’s work.
Cummins spoke specifically about four necklaces that are in The Circuitry of Joyce J. Scott: A Group Exhibition of Collaboration and Innovation. It was fantastic to hear about specific pieces and them to be able to point to them around the room.
As a lovely surprise, Shana Kroiz, who has a piece in Circuitry, was able to relate her personal connection to Scott and how she doesn’t believe that Scott gets any sleep because of how prolific she is. As another surprise, a member of the audience was actually wearing a Joyce J. Scott piece.
The talk will be available on craftinamerica.org soon.
