The 45th Annual Tri-State Sculptors Association Conference will be hosted at the Floyd Center for the Arts, October 5-8. Register to join the conference and engage with sculptors of varying medium, listen to lectures, watch demos, and check out the artwork being installed! The keynote speaker for this year is renowned blacksmith, Elizabeth Brim! Elizabeth Brim is a blacksmith as well as a teacher, living in western North Carolina. She's best known for feminine imagery in her ironwork. A native of Columbus, Georgia, she graduated with an MFA in printmaking before studying and working with a variety of materials at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. Quite unexpectedly, she fell in love with iron. With a unique juxtaposition of the feminine and the ferrous, Brim transforms the frilly dresses, fairy tales, and gender expectations of her childhood into remarkable works of social commentary.
