About Ombré Gallery:
Our mission is to exhibit innovative works using both traditional and non-traditional materials, techniques and subjects, while serving as a conduit to highlight the relationship between art, craft, fashion, and design. The gallery will serve as a dynamic interaction between artist-jewelers and collectors to discover studio jewelry and learn more about makers through exhibitions and lectures.
