NEW PALTZ -- Seidenath began her studies at the School for Jewelry at Neugablonz in her native Germany, went on to study at SUNY New Paltz, and then under the renowned goldsmith Herman Junger at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.
A visiting lecturer at many universities around the world, a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and two Rhode Island State Council on the Arts grants, Seidenath is recognized as one of the most influential jewelry artists of her generation.
In 2002, Marjorie Simon wrote in Metalsmith Magazine "[Seidenath's work] is as delectable as the witch's house was to Hansel and Gretel. Putting it on would be like breaking the frozen surface and seeing the sun burst through again."
Barbara Seidenath will give a presentation about her work
