contributors Carolyn L. E. Benesh Carolyn L. E. Benesh is Coeditor of Ornament Magazine and specializes in contemporary jewelry and clothing. It is with great appreciation that she unveils the first retrospective of Ken Loeber's ethereal jewelry and silversmithing at the Racine Art Museum. Presenting more than two decades of Loeber's explorations of space and form, the exhibition covers Loeber's distinctive works not only in one-of-a-kind, but limited-edition and production jewelry, and his early hollowware. She also contributes a write-up on the American Jewelry Design Council. p. 32, 68 Patrick R. Benesh-Liu Patrick R. Benesh-Liu is Associate Editor for Ornament Magazine and has written articles on museum exhibitions, contemporary jewelers and clothing makers, and craft shows. In this issue he gives an exposé on the Savannah College of Art & Design, a multi-national institution with its main campus based in its eponymous town. He describes how in the modern age, humanity despite its struggles is finally equipped to pursue its own dreams and desires, and relates how SCAD works to support a person's interest in reinventing themselves as an artist and craftsperson. He also compiles the latest jewelry and clothing related events from around the world in Ornament's news section. p. 24, 60 Ashley Callahan Ashley Callahan is an independent scholar and curator in Athens, Georgia, with a specialty in modern and contemporary American decorative arts. She has written books and curated exhibitions on sisters Ilonka and Mariska Karasz, Hungarian-born modern designers based in New York, and Henry Eugene Thomas, a Colonial Revival furniture craftsman from Athens. She enjoys documenting the decorative arts history of the Southeast and promoting the region's efforts to celebrate craft and design. The newspaper dress from Dalton, which inspired her to investigate the topic of newspaper fashion, came to her attention as part of her research for a book she is writing on the history of chenille fashion for the University of Georgia Press. p. 36 6 ORNAMENT 37.1.2013 Tamara W.
