    Wisconsin Designer Crafts Council is sad to relay some news about one of our treasured board members and fellow artists.  Jeweler, Polly Daeger succumbed to a recurrent bout of cancer on November 17.  While some of us knew that she had beat cancer in the past, most of us didn’t know that it had returned recently and within weeks, took her life.  A heavy heart for the tremendous loss of an amazing woman that led a rich life full of extensive travel adventures, wide circle of friends and a talent of transforming virtually any material into the height of fashion in her enviable studio.  Her generosity, dedication to the arts and most of all her deep and loving friendship will be missed by all.

    So many people give their time and talent to make our Winter Glory show happen. Would you like to join the action at our new venue, the Polish Center in Franklin?

    Show setup starts Friday, Nov. 20, and any amount of time you can give during the weekend will be greatly appreciated. Adults and responsible older children are welcome.

    On Friday before the show opens, we need help with setup (8:30 a.m.–3 p.m.) and artist check-in (3–8 p.m.). On Saturday and Sunday we can use a variety of helpers throughout the day.

    Please send a message to Stephanie Bartz, show chair, at heybartzie88@gmail.com. Thanks in advance!

    It is with deep sorrow that we share the news of long-standing WDCC member Joan Miller Hubbards passing on August 26th. Joan was an incredible artist who created forms of nature in gold and silver, masterfully using repousse and chasing techniques.  Her stunning jewelry incorporates precious and semi-precious stones that enhance and compliment the exquisite metalwork. 

    There will be a memorial at Good Shepherd Church, Menomonee Falls on Sept 11.  Visitation is at 10 am with mass at 11 am and then reception following.  Her obituary will be in the Milwaukee Journal 9/6 and 9/9.

    Joans arts education is from UWM and Cranbrook academy of Art.  She has shared her knowledge and touched many appreciative students where she taught at the College of Arts and Design, Parkside, UWM, MATC, Mount Mary University and Milwaukee public schools.  She has garnered several impressive awards over her long career and been affiliated with many art organizations.  Joan has exhibited her jewelry widely at prestigious shows and galleries throughout the United States and has had her work published in both the Lapidary Journal and Art Jewelry.

    Please visit her website to learn more about her and view her beautiful jewelry:  http://artisticmetaljewelry.com/index.html
