Welcome to the fifth in our six part #LifesWorkMatinee series of films & interviews.  This week we see the short film Lady Bug and enter the fascinating world of metalsmith Elizabeth Goluch,, and see her work.

A bit about Elizabeth from her website...

"Elizabeth Goluch, BFA NSCAD University 1976, grew up in Ontario and subsequently made Halifax, NS her home. She has received awards from the Canada Council for the Arts, NS Tourism Culture & Heritage, Arts Nova Scotia and from the Metal Arts Guild of Nova Scotia, including the Frank Phillips Award for Excellence in Craftsmanship. Her Cicada sculpture was a finalist for the 2007 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award. She has exhibited in South Korea, the Czech Republic and across North America.

Her work can be found in the Nova Scotia Art Bank, in the Art Gallery of Guelph's Canadian Silversmiths Collection and in private collections in Canada, USA, Denmark, Australia and Hong Kong."

Life's Work: Six Conversations with Makers was a 2015 project developed by Craft Alliance Atlantic and Craft Nova Scotia, produced by Breakwater Studios, and funded by Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and Film and Creative Industries. The six short documentaries featured master craftspeople, their work, the beautiful parts of Nova Scotia where they live and practice their crafts.

The Life's Work Matinee series will revisit these films, and with the help of communications consultant and former broadcaster, Crystal Garrett, will catch up with the craftspeople that were originally featured.
