When Worn

Exhibit Dates: March 2—26, 2020

When Worn features the work of emerging and established jewelers and metalsmiths from across the nation.

When Worn highlights the act of adornment. When placed on the body, jewelry, transforms not only the appearance of its wearer, but it inserts itself between the adorned and audience as a signal and an invitation between two beings.

Jewelry has the power to communicate without language. It calls to be a center for dialogue and connection between two people. A simple ring can be a silent signal that shares someone’s marital status and perhaps a pendant can notate personal beliefs or be a badge proudly declaring ‘I belong.’

Poetic Embroidery

Exhibit Dates: September 6 – 27
Opening Reception: September 6, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Poetic Embroidery displays two large-scale installations, Tales of Woah by Kelly Rogers and Red Dirt Rug by Rena Detrixhe. Connected by the concept of story, these two artists explore variation in the process of embroidery, presenting non-traditional textile pieces through poetic expression.
