Jennifer Weigel is a multi-disciplinary mixed media conceptual artist. Weigel utilizes a wide range of media to convey her ideas, including assemblage, costume, drawing, fibers, installation, jewelry, painting, performance and video. Much of her work touches on themes of beauty, identity (especially as it pertains to gender identity), memory & forgetting, and institutional critique.

Dara Cheek (Hieropice) - visual artist, jeweler, instructor
I live in Boston, where my apartment has become overrun with the glass terrariums, jewelry, glass and metal sculpture I make. I started making art by doing portraits of those adorable Filene's stuffed holiday bears (that they no longer sell!) when I was 4, and graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University with a degree in, well, Fine Arts (metals/glass concentration). Crafting is my passion, and though I think no one creates more beautifully than nature, I do my best to compete.
The Feather Forge
I've been making things with whatever I could get my hands on for my entire life. My interest in design eventually lead to a masters degree in architecture, which has given me a good grounding in the design process and collaborative work. My current work is focused on bending wire into interesting shapes and ornamenting it with random found objects and beads, mostly as jewelry, and the occasional digital artwork or graphic design project.
