Statement

Bio for Artist: Harriete Estel Berman

Harriete Estel Berman uses recycled tin cans to construct artwork ranging from jewelry and teacups to entire lawns of social commentary. Sculptures from the last twenty-nine years include domestic appliances as a commentary on the roles of women in our society and the influence of advertising in our consumer society.

Berman’s work has been shown throughout the United States, and in Europe and Africa. Her work is included in the permanent collections of fourteen museums including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Detroit Institute of Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Columbus Museum of Art, and the Oakland Museum of California. Recent exhibitions include a four person exhibition at the Loveland Museum, Co. and a retrospective at the National Ornamental Metals Museum in Tennessee as a ‘Master Smith’.  She is featured in over 30 books including a whole chapter in the book ReManufractured:  The Conspicuous Transformation of Everyday Objects and the cover of The Fine Art of The Tin Can.

She is currently writing an ongoing series of Professional Guidelines for artists to promote understanding, checklists, and practical solutions for recurring issues in the art and craft community.  The Professional Guidelines are available for free as downloadable PDF files on the SNAG (Society of North American Goldsmiths) website at:  http://www.snagmetalsmith.org/Publications/Professional_Guidelines/ and her web site at: http://www.harriete-estel-berman.info/profguidelines/profguide.html

Her blog ASK HARRIETE regularly offers professional advice to the art community at http://askharriete.typepad.com.

Ms. Berman has also organized the Professional Development Seminar with Don Friedlich and Andy Cooperman prior to the SNAG conference for the last five years.

Born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, a graduate of Syracuse University (BFA) and Temple University (MFA), she resides in San Mateo, California.
