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.
