UPCOMING SHOW OPENING

Sweetwater center for the arts presents

“statement pieces”

May 3 - June 7, 2019
 
Opening Reception: Friday, May 3, 6:00-9:00pm

The wearable object has a long history of holding strong meaning and communicating specific intention, for both the maker and the wearer. Jewelry art enjoys a unique connection of intimacy with the viewer. These qualities can inherently amplify concept and expression of social awareness, political ideology, gender identity, personal experience, etc. The Statement Pieces exhibition showcases jewelry created not only to wear, but to tell a story, communicate an idea, or to make a statement.


Artists Include: Yasmina Conti, Rachel Andrea Davis, Dawna Gillespie, Bethany James, Cathryn Jasterzbski, Katie Kameen, Karen Krieger, LaVerne Kemp, Mary B Mason, Erin McCue, Adwowa Obeng-Osei, Liz Sabol, Rebecca Schena, Sarah Jane Sindler, Cyan Mengxin Zhang, and Yingqi Puffy Zhao.

Statement Pieces is juried by Kate Lydon
