9 January – 17 February,  exhibition Monochrome Noir’  at Velvet da Vinci Gallery, San Fransisco, CA, U.S.A.

Curated by Michael Dale Bernard and Tara LocklearArtists’ reception Friday, January 11 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Monochrome Noir: Curated by Michael Dale Bernard and Tara Locklear - Participating artists:  Allyson Bone, Sara Brown, Ashley Buchanan, Kat Cole, Gabriel Craig, Michael Dale Bernard, Robert Ebendorf, Réka Fekete Réka, Arthur Hash, Sarah Holden, Yevgeniya Kaganovich, Tara Locklear, Nick Mullins, Katie Poterala, Marissa Saneholtz, Loring Taoka, The Opulent Project, Robert Thomas Mullen, Tanel Veenre, Stephanie Voegele, Sarah West, Laura Wood, Leia Zumbro - Photo: Becky Parker

Monochrome Noir features work that boldly flaunts deep fields of black and that is punctuated with the perfect placement of a single color. These contemporary jewelry artists rely on the sleek, darker side of the monochromatic view. Often using found or recycled materials, much of this work presents a narrative inspired by geography, architecture, historical motifs, and decorative arts. The exhibition installation will also include portraits featuring the jewelry from Monochrome Noir by North Carolina photographer Becky Parker. This collection of jewelry and portraits alternates between punk and formal, irreverent and elegant. The show includes 22 artists from the United States, Estonia, and The Netherlands.

EXPO ‘Come Apart’ – Heidi Lowe Gallery, Rehoboth (DE),(USA) – 13 Aout-9 Nov. 2010

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,Gal. Heidi Lowe (US),The Opulent Project (US),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 0:20

The Opulent Project, a Portland (OR) based artists collective, will open a new exhibition, « Come Apart », at Heidi Lowe Gallery on August 13, 2011 from 6-9 P.M.

http://www.heidilowejewelry.com/common/resizethumb.php?galleryId=20B8-EFFH-6E59&titleId=561&new_width=500&new_height=275&whichimage=1&watermark=

 

The Opulent Project have created a new body of work for the upcoming exhibition entitled, “Come Apart.” The work in this show explores various forms of fragmentation visually, physically and/or conceptually. They have also created another variation of one of their classic pieces “Wallpaper.” “Wallpaper” explores adornment related to the body and interior space. The viewer is invited to participate by pulling jewelry from the wall to adorn themselves while at the same time revealing a pattern in the negative space that remains.

 

The Opulent Project uses new technologies to create jewelry that questions the conventional idea of value. Megan Drinkwater and Erin Gardner, Opulent Project founders will be at the gallery to show their work and answer questions. The show will be on view through October.

Sienna Gallery debuted the project last April at SOFA NY where we installed a photobooth. This format provided visitors with an experience outside of the typical museum-like presentation of jewelry and objects at SOFA. We encouraged people to have fun interacting with our jewelry. Viewers instantly became wearers, modeling our jewelry for a printed souvenir photo-strip. And in some sense the wearer became a « collector » and jewelry became « collected » through physical printed image and solidified through social media.
