Please join us for a talk with visiting artist Timothy Veske-McMahon on Sunday December 2 at 3pm in the Gallery at Brooklyn Metal Works.

 

We’re pleased to have Timothy Veske-McMahon return to BKMW to speak in support of his recent exhibition, Soft Spot, at Gallery Loupe in Montclair, NJ. Veske-McMahon is a good friend of Brooklyn Metal Works. He has been a popular instructor and last spoke here in 2015 when his exhibition mirror milk was In the Gallery.

 

American artist Timothy Veske-McMahon consistently challenges the body, the heart, and the mind with profound concepts, using jewelry as a vehicle. His newest series, Soft Spot, probes the human dilemma, still further, by addressing memory rather than presence. To Veske-McMahon a soft spot is “a fondness, predilection, and bias. The sore and tender weaknesses that define us. An obscuring blur in vision, memory, or ability.”
