So we've been hearing about the newest
being held at the
Museum of Arts and Design
Necklaces of all types are on display from 75 artists
and materials range from items
“as unconventional as pig intestines, gun triggers, mustard seeds, LED lighting, black coral, butterfly wings, phone directories, mirrors and lenses. The fabrication techniques employed by the artists are as different as traditional goldsmithing and cutting-edge digital prototyping.”
Included are iconic pieces such as
this vibrant creation by sculptural jewelry artist
and an example of the thread paintings created by
fiber artist Missy Stevens
and this unusual piece by Maria Phillips
made with pig intestine stretched over
a steel frame
There are many more works to view
from such notables asArline Fisch, Nancy Worden, Cynthia Toops,
Kiff Slemmons, Joyce Scott, and Liv Blavarp.
This exhibit runs from January 24 to May 21, 2012.
