CSULB Metals and Jewelry lecturer Rachel Shimpock in exhibition and magazine article

Posted on April 10, 2018 by School of Art

Rachel ShimpockCSULB Metals and Jewelry Lecturer Rachel Shimpock will be in an Sculptural Jewelry exhibition entitled Hot Stuff at the Manhattan Beach Art Center opening on April 13, 2018 through May 17, 2018. “Rachel’s work is an exploration of formal elements that address the essence of the sensual encounter with comfort food. Rachel defines herself both as a metalsmith and a proud foodie. She is part of the gastronomic population that knows carrots are better; but would rather wear her cheeseburger and eat it too.” This exhibition also features two other female artists – Jill Gower and Jessica Calderwood, who also use alternate approaches to jewelry making.

Last year Ms. Shimpock won the Best in Show Award for Excellence for booth design at the 2017 American Craft Show in San Francisco, and from that experience Ms. Shimpock talks about Best Practices in Craft Shows in American Craft magazine. Congratulations Ms. Shimpock!
