Body pArts @ Goldesberry Gallery

 

Body pArts, Site Specific Art Jewelry 2012 is the brainchild of jewelry artists Sandra Zilker, Debbie Wetmore, and Edward Lane McCartney and will be on display from December 1 -24th, 2012 at Goldesberry Gallery 2625 Colquitt Street  Houston, TX 77098 (713) 528-0405.

Opening, artist reception, and modeling is from 6-8 PM December 1, 2012.

Designing wearable art, wrought from both precious and non-precious materials, 15 Houston art jewelers and metalsmiths have united with a group of new work that fits site specific locations of the human body. This show of bold new creations and traditionally wearable pieces is a collection of works categorized by their functional loci along the body’s specific parts. Emphasizing body/art relationships the installation underlines the relationships between body location and jewelry. The represented artists come from a wide variety of backgrounds, nations, technical and jewelry media specialties, and points of view,  but all reside, work, share an investment in the Houston art jewelry scene and a commitment to exploring the intrinsic character of adornment and its connection to the wearer.

BodypArts will be the final show at Goldesberry Gallery. Nancy and Oliver Goldesberry will be retiring as of December 25 and closing the gallery after 21 years on Gallery Row in Houston. Please come show your support to these longtime supporters, collectors and gallery owners of fine craft.
