Some Nice Stuff

My work, 'The Death of Po-Han', received a jurors award at the 30th Annual Mesa Contemporary Crafts Competition.

The 'Hand to Hand Project', a collaborative art exhibition on the Iraq War, put together by Cecelia Kane, was named Best Political Art by the Atlanta Journal constitution.

It's been a good month

I have had a good December, to say the least.

Here's what's up with my art...

ONE -My work, 'The Death of Po-Han', is in the 30th Annual Mesa Contemporary Crafts Competition. This year, the juror was Namita Gupta Wiggers, the curator of Portland's Contemporary Craft Museum. The Mesa show is a special place for me as the 26th Annual led to my first museum acquisition by the Museum of Art and Design. The Mesa show opens January 23 and runs to March 15.

TWO - I have a solo show, 'Scott Schuldt: the Politics of Beads' at the gallery, Bead and Fiber, in Boston. The exhibition opens January 7 and runs to February 21. Several of my more political pieces (except for 'The Death of Po-Han') will be exhibited along with my Kevlar/copper gloves from Cecelia Kane's ''Hand to Hand" collaborative exhibition on the Iraq War.

THREE - I am a finalist for a public art commission. This is a new first for me and I will be porposing a project that ties together archeology and public utilities.
