« Two new collections of jewelry will be exhibited at Heidi Lowe Gallery as part of the Rehoboth Beach art loop from 6-9 p.m. Saturday, July 10. The opening of “Addition and Subtraction” by Sarah Loertscher and Gayle Friedman will be on display through Aug. 13.
“This show contrasts two women jewelry artists who are dissimilar in many ways but are harmonious in others,” gallery owner Lowe said. “The juxtaposition of Sarah’s complex yet specific shapes with Gayle’s free-form pieces showcases the broad spectrum of styles that fall under the umbrella of ‘art jewelry’. Despite this, they both use similar materials and techniques to reach two different conclusions.”
For those who cannot attend the Saturday opening, Heidi Lowe Gallery will host an opening for locals from 6-9 p.m. Tuesday, July 13. Tuesday was selected because there is less traffic and more parking than during the weekend.
Seattle-based artist Loertscher received a bachelor’s degree in metalsmithing from Ball State University in Muncie, Ind. Friedman is from Washington, D.C., and uses unexpected materials in her jewelry. »
