PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
We are very proud to announce that Gallery Loupe will be taking part in SOFA (SCULPTURE OBJECTS & FUNCTIONAL ART) FAIR for the first time this year.
We will be showcasing the German artist Georg Dobler, an internationally acclaimed contemporary art jeweler, presenting his geometric and Constructivist forms of steel and black chrome that focus on line and volume.
Also featured in the Gallery Loupe SOFA booth will be the work of important studio jewelry artists Susanne Klemm and Sandra Enterline, both of whom are well established in the world of American and European Contemporary Art Jewelry. The work of three dynamic, young artists, Attai Chen, Tobias Alm, and Laura Deakin will also be presented.
Don't miss Georg Dobler's lecture, sponsored by SNAG (Society of North American Goldsmiths) on Saturday, April 21 at 1 pm. Dobler will discuss the disparate poles of geometric and organic forms in his work - where naturalism and abstraction meet. Following the lecture there will be a book signing at the Gallery Loupe booth.
Friday April 20th 1pm
Susanne Klemm's Growth Series explores the inspiration of nature in her work. She will discuss this influence and offer a view into the development of her unconventional techniques on Friday, April 20 at 1 p.m. at a booth talk entitled "Growing."
Saturday April 21st, 5pm
Tobias Alm will present "Guided by Intuition". He will discuss his improvisational working methods and belief in their power to take him places that a linear, logical process cannot.
Sunday April 22nd, 1pm
Sandra Enterline reinterprets the notion of preciousness through the use of diamonds, petroleum and panned gold. A consummate metalsmith, she brings technical mastery and layers of meaning to her work. She will discuss her fascination with light and the dynamic ways in which it inspires her.
In addition to the above, a selection of Gallery Loupe's artists will be shown including Klaus Bürgel, Yael Friedman, Thomas Gentille, Rory Hooper, John Iversen, Vered Kaminski, Joan Parcher, Robin Quigley, Biba Schutz and Marjorie Simon.
