EXPO ‘coOperation – GARNISH’ – Gallery Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco (USA) – 19 Aout-20 Sept. 2015

co-operation – garnish

A collaborative exhibition organized by Brigitte Martin and Rachel Timmins

Artists’ Reception:  Friday August 21, 6-8pm

co-operation - garnish

 A garnish can be anything from an adornment that adds or enhances the body (human or animal) to a functional or nonfunctional object that decorates and spices up a room. This exhibition will ask viewers and participants to examine the idea of a garnish made by 2 different subsets of makers who have come together to create an embellishment that satisfies both.

Statement from the organizers:
A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current. The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Each side considers itself superior to the other, seemingly not appreciating the clear advantages, benefits, and experiences each faction brings to the table. Quoting from Damian Skinner’s 2013 SNAG keynote lecture in Toronto:
“We are all family. Sometimes, family members don’t speak with each other, but we still are one big family. Let’s recognize this fact.”
Can our field overcome family division and send a much-needed signal to the metals + jewelry community? We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making. Arriving at this message is the goal of this exhibition.”  – Brigitte Martin and Rachel Timmins

Artiste Argentine, vivant à Buenos Aires,vous pouvez voir et acheter ses créations sur   http://www.etsy.com/profile.php?user_id=5198877

Le plus « joli » dans ces bijoux c’est qu’ils ont été faits à l’origine pour une jeune mariée qui voulait des bijoux juste pour le jour de son mariage! BRAVO à cette jeune femme dont « l’audace » me rempli d’admiration :-)

« I originally designed this necklace for a bride. She wanted a versatile piece which could be worn not only on her wedding day, but also as a casual piece … » says Cynthia del Giudice

Delightful jewelry !  it’s incredible how plastic grocery bags can be poetic & romantic ! ;-)
