About the show:

“The only article of jewelry that requires physical intervention – piercing of the earlobe – the earring continues to be the most popular accessory. The earliest examples were found more than 7,000 years ago, during archaeological digs in Mongolia. In following millennia, this article of jewelry acquired various meanings and functions. It took a variety of forms, from the talisman to the symbol of wealth or prosperity, and was, at times, prohibited for religious or political reasons. From poissardes to girandoles, pearls and the use of precious stones, designs varied widely, inspired by each other. In recent decades, a number of unusual materials have made their appearance.

This exhibition looks at current production in contemporary art jewelry. Luster, color, humor, asymmetry: a full list of words describing the works selected for this event would be a long one. Made from traditional materials as well as plastic, silicone, and porcelain, among others, the earrings presented here rival each other in originality and ingenuity as well as in their remarkable exploration of the aesthetic. Daring, delicate, or simply exquisite, they will leave no one indifferent.” - from the essay by Noel Guyomarc’

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal. Some artists creatively tap into these challenges and give voice to them through a variety of mediums and styles. Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More
