I am the official horse…I mean ‘runner up’ for the 2015 MERA Award for Excellence in the Fine Arts and Fine Crafts.
“For her part, Star Horn also works and innovates within a tradition. Her visually stunning necklaces, chokers and bracelets show a sensitive understanding of both the techniques of beadwork and a strong feeling for indigenous Plains formal traditions. At the same time, she successfully adapts these forms for the contemporary wearer.” writes Diana Nemiroff.
Ms Nemiroff is the former Director of Carleton University Art Gallery and senior curator at the National Gallery of Canada from 1990 to 2005.
Below are a few examples of my submission for this award. Well, $1000 WOULDA BEEN NICE….but I guess I will settle for this acknowledgement and opportunity to showcase my jewelry in June at the official presentation. 🙂
