(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – 92nd Street Y’s International Jewelry Artist Residency is a juried residency for cutting edge, emerging and established jewelry artists to develop their work in the multifaceted New York City art scene. For a month from Aug. 22 through Sept. 23, the residency will provide the opportunity for an international artist with a studio-based practice to develop a new body of work or complete research while engaging with New York’s cultural community. Applications and supporting materials must be submitted by Feb. 12. A rotating panel of experts and professionals in the arts and humanities will independently review applications and materials, and the selected jeweler will be notified by April 2.

Jonathan Wahl, director of 92Y’s Jewelry Center, said, “The residency is designed to provide time, space and facilities for research, experimentation and the cultivation of new ideas in jewelry and light metalwork — all while giving the artist an immersive experience in the vibrant world of NYC arts and culture.”

The International Jewelry Residency includes housing to 92Y Residence, access to a 24-hour private studio working space, and travel expenses to and from New York. The residency offers the opportunity for an artist to share his or her distinct aesthetic, technical or design style with the New York design community through a two-day lecture and workshop at the 92Y Jewelry Center during the last weekend of the residency and through professional meetings with participating cultural institutions while expanding their artistic and professional development.

Proposals for the self-directed residencies must be compatible with available working studio spaces, facilities and resources. Artistic merit and promise are the basis for selections, but the relevancy of how the NYC environment will affect or progress the artist’s work is weighed heavily in the selection process. Mature as well as emerging artists are encouraged to apply. The residency is awarded to one artist each year. Guidelines and application submissions are available at: http://bit.ly/JewelryResidency

The 92Y Jewelry Artist Residency Program is supported by Kathy Chazen.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
