Event Description


Art jeweler Chihiro Makio’s “Metal Bloom!” collection meets Brian Ferrell’s sleek “New American Furniture and Tableware” in complimentary exhibits at Luke & Eloy Gallery.

The exhibits run from September 19 to October 31, 2009. Opening Reception is Saturday, September 19 from 11am to 5pm.

Makio and Ferrell share an elegant design aesthetic that they express in very different media. Makio’s jewelry is crafted in silver with glass seed beads and sequins creating delicate forms of body ornament. Her work is extremely wearable and beautifully crafted. Ferrell reduces his furniture designs to a few tapering lines and shapes, with surfaces that seem to float precariously above their legs. His furniture designs combine colored and natural woods, metal, and steel cable. Ferrell’s tableware plays off of the shapes of his furniture.

Makio holds a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art as a glass and jewelry artist. Her work has won numerous design awards and is seen in select craft galleries and museums throughout the USA.

Ferrell holds BFA degrees in jewelry and metals from Indiana University of PA and University of Massachusetts – Dartmouth. His creations can be seen in many publications and private collections. He is one of the few artists to have had a solo exhibit at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater in Mill Run, PA.

Luke & Eloy Gallery is located at 5169 Butler Street in Lawrenceville. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday 11am to 2pm, Saturdays 11am to 5pm. For more information visit www.lukeandeloy.ning.com or call 412-784-1919.
