Meet FABRICATED's Trunk Show coordinator, Jennea. Jennea Frischke is an interdisciplinary Alberta-born jewellery artist currently residing in Calgary. In 2006 she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Alberta College of Art & Design (ACAD), where she majored in Jewellery and Metals. Jennea maintains an active jewellery practice, teaches Continuing Education courses at ACAD and has a vintage business aptly named “Around the Block Salvage”.
Her work is exhibited and collected nationally. In addition to participating in a number of juried shows each year, Jennea was chosen as one of 12 Albertans selected to be part of the Prairie Excellence travelling 3 year exhibition. Jennea's designs can be purchased through the Alberta Craft Council in Edmonton, Diner Deluxe in calgary, and online at the Rabbit Boutique http;//www.rabbit-boutique.com/
On September 3, Jennea will have her first solo show, "Victorian Inclinations" at the Alberta Craft Council in Edmonton. She received a grant from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts to study Victorian jewellery in London, England, and the work is based on elements of this time period. Jennea is also active in the Calgary art scene through volunteering in a variety of arts groups including FABRICATED for the first two seasons, and recently as the set decorator for a local independent film, Dog Mask.
Needless to say, FABRICATED is lucky and proud to have such a talented, devoted, and highly recognized artist on the team. If you, too, are an accessory craftsman, you could have a chance to work closely with Jennea! She is looking for more vendors for this season's Trunk Show.
