So, as it turns out, I’ll be showing some new work that I’ve made at Alloy Gallery. The opening will be on Thursday, June 10th at Alloy Gallery on Spring Street in Newport, Rhode Island.
Alloy is a phenomenal contemporary art gallery, which primarily displays the work of local artists. Despite a location which you may think lends itself to more conventional works, Alloy is truly an oasis of smartly designed and extremely well articulated pieces of jewelry and art objects. The owner, Tamar Kern, has done a great job filling the contemporary jewelry niche in Rhode Island.
From my experience, I have found her to be a very encouraging gallerist. She goes out of her way to work with emerging artists and designers, helping to create a more confident group of makers by providing a proactive gallery experience.
Clearly, I adore her and Alloy! So, I’m very excited to have the opportunity to show with her, and to get a response on the new pieces I’ve been working on.
The image at the right is of a template that I sent to the laser cutter earlier this week. I can’t wait to get the real pieces back and to see how the computer files that I’ve been slaving over transform into objects!
oh my god! This template looks AMAZING. I can’t wait to see them in person. Also, when can i be invited to one of these openings?
Ooo – what size are they?
Wendi, of course you’re invited to everything… you and Richard could make a date of it!
Andrea, the necklaces are big enough to fit over your head, and the bracelets are around 8″ long and will be snap closures. Earrings are about 3″ long, or so.
yay! I’m just trying to get you to stop being so modest.
