Mon, May 7, 2018  SAN DIEGO, CA – GSSD General Meeting

Venue:  SDMG Bldg.
Spanish Village, Balboa Park

Time:  7:00pm.  Free Admission and ample Parking.  Public Welcome.

Nancy Arthur-McGehee will give a presentation on "Catching Light on the Edge, A Look at Historical and Contemporary Intaglios." Intaglios are related to cameos – both are carved, but intaglios are engraved into the gem, whereas cameos are carved in relief. Both have been prized from early antiquity to the present day. Artist Nancy Arthur-McGehee is fascinated with gems and in particular with intaglio carvings. In her talk, she will show images of the early gem intaglios that inspired her to take up the medium, as well as images of her own work and that of other contemporary artists. She will also discuss tools and materials, and if there is time we will try our hand with a simple yet essential engraving technique using diamond drills and rotary tools.

Please bring treats to share.  The Club will supply coffee, tea, and punch.
