Price:                      Free Entry. Art Raffle every 30 minutes.

South Park artists will knock your socks off with original, edgy works not seen at a typical holiday sale. What’s more, everything is affordable, with nothing priced over $100. The event will showcase a diverse array of art, including painting, sculpture, neon, jewelry, clothing, photography, glass, letterpress, and more.

Artist-to-Artist: Elizabeth Knopf chats with SPArts founder Wendy Woldenberg

Friday, November 12th, 2010

For the latest installment of our Artist-to-Artist series, South Park Arts founder Wendy Woldenberg chats with Elizabeth Knopf. Both are fantastically creative jewelry makers who draw on found objects — Wendy uses natural forms to create jewelry in precious metals while Elizabeth represents nature by upcycling discarded materials. Both are veterans of Art Under $100 and will be happy to see you at the 2010 sale!

Elizabeth: Wendy, I am wondering how long have you been making jewelry and what some of your favorite materials to work with are?

Wendy: I started making jewelry to help pay my rent back in 1990. At the time, I mainly used wire and fimo clay, and sold everything for $5. With every piece I made and sold, I became more and more addicted to the sense of accomplishment. Lately, I have been really into using yellow gold and brightly colored faceted gemstones. But, I also like to use shells, river rocks, beach glass, and white metals, too.

When did you start making jewelry and what materials do you like to use?
