Event Description

The Lake Placid Center for the Arts announces the upcoming exhibition, Precious Metals: Jewelry & Functional Art, opening July 9, 2010, and running through August 15, 2010. Local Adirondack artists Susan Camp and David Woodward will be shown along with many internationally-based artists whose work can be found in museum collections and galleries around the world. Other artists included are Kathleen Browne, Donna D’Aquino, Dan Dailey, Karen Gilbert, Gretchen Julius, Linda MacNeil, Albert Paley, Biba Schutz, Joe Wood, and Patrycja Zwierzynska.
While many of the artists will feature unique one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, others will show things like fireplace tools, lamps, and candlestick holders, each piece unique and hand-made. The exhibit highlights the idea that we can live with art every day, and even objects we take for granted can be made uniquely by an artist, confronting us much like a painting on a wall might. All of the pieces on display will be for sale, with a percentage of proceeds going to the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.
An opening reception will be held at the LPCA on Friday, July 9, 2010, from 5:00-7:00 PM. Several of the artists will be at the opening, including (but not limited to) Susan Camp, Donna D’Aquino, Dan Dailey, Linda MacNeil, Albert Paley, Biba Schutz , and David Woodward. Sara Jane DeHoff and Ashley Kasperzak, both summer residents of Lake Placid, have curated the exhibition.
Every other Thursday, for the run of the exhibition, beginning July 15, 2010 from 4:00-6:00 PM, the LPCA will be hosting Precious Metals High Teas, encouraging visitors to come in for refreshments while they try on the jewelry and enjoy the exhibition. The LPCA is located at 17 Algonquin Drive, Lake Placid, NY.

Comment Wall

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!

Arriving at this message is the goal of this traveling exhibition opening at the SNAG conference in Boston 2015, Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco, CA - Aug 19 - Sept 20, 2015, Equinox Gallery, San Antonio, TX - Oct 16 - Nov 15, 2015, Baltimore Jewelry Center, Baltimore, MD - Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 08, 2016, Brooklyn Metal Works, Brooklyn, NY - Feb 5 - Mar 4, 2016.
