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.

Participating Artists:    Suzanne Amendolara / Dan DiCaprio — Christiana Byrne / David Lee — Catherine Chandler / Sonya Scott — Brian Ferrell / Jillian Moore –  Heidi Gerstacker / Masumi KataokaEmily Gill / Jaime Sawka — Charity Hall / Francesca Vitali Peter Hoogeboom / Maia Houtman — Nicole Jacquard / Annie Fensterstock — Lauren Kalman / Kipp Bradford –  Satomi Kawai / Nikki Couppee — Thomas Mann / Wayne Werner –  Bruce Metcalf / Evin Dubois — Tom Muir / Caitlin Skelcey — Vincent Pontillo Verrastro / Sharon Massey –  Mette Saabye / Pernille Mouritzen — Marissa Saneholtz /Michael Dale BernardLinda Savineau / Steve Shelby — Olga Starostina / Corey AckelmireBillie Theide / Brooke Marks-SwansonRachel Timmins / Brigitte Martin — Aric Verrastro /Randy Long

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

EXPO ‘Monochrome Noir’ – Velvet da Vinci Gallery, San Fransisco (USA) – 9 Janv.-17 Fevr. 2013

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.

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.

Malaika Najem-‘Forgotten’ pendant

This piece (‘Forgotten’ pendant) is about child soldiers and is called “Forgotten”. A subject that sadly still exists in 3rd world countries that are in war whether in Africa, the Middle East or Asia. The average child soldier is under the age of 18 and is forced and manipulated in doing and committing horrors that they are not aware off due to the use of drugs or brainwashing. The child is just an instrument, just a number; just a slave to the gun…the gun is the symbol of power.” (Malaika Najem)

Bety Majernikova -  "WRAF" serie - 2008-2009         In this series I try to reflect the omnipresent "war" of today's women with the world surrounding themBety Majernikova ‘Wraf’ series necklace -2008-2009

« In this series I try to reflect the omnipresent « war » of today’s women with the world surrounding them. On one hand I criticize that nowadays society expects from women unrealistic results in many aspects. On the other hand I also aim criticism at women, because they themselves put up with these unrealistic criteria and strive to comply with them. I choose well known symbols as a gun, flower heart… and I am using this cliché symbols on the purpose. I work with it; I build on it a new composition with readable meanings. Dark beats applied to perforated spots on the pieces of jewellery are a symbolic reminder of a gunshot – a bullet – an attack. They are made out of different materials – hematite, marble, glass, steel and pearl-shell. »
