Tara and Ashley Buchanan
featured artist for acc show(that's her necklace)
I met Tara through Sarah West, they were both in the Metals program at ECU, at the same time. Though I had known Tara's work, before meeting her. She is savvy at marketing and promoting her work through excellent photographic images, and social media networking. I'm not sure how she does all the things she does. Lots of traveling, invitational shows, curating as well as participating. She teaches workshops and is very involved with SNAG.  The work I've featured is all made from recycled SkateBoards. She is a very passionate, positive, energetic, and artistic force who is connected and devoted to the growth and future of the metals and jewelry community. Im glad she is in Raleigh and has acquainted herself with me and the Pullen Art Center.
