Velvet da Vinci  Nikki Couppee HOLOGEMS May 11 – June 19, 2016  Artist’s Reception: Friday, May 13, 2016, 6-8pm:

 Nikki Couppee’s recent work talks about the different functions jewelry performs in society. Objects of personal adornment have the ability to define a person’s social statues, serve as a redeemable investment and perform on a psychological level. Working with everyday materials like Plexiglass, brass, and found objects in place of precious gems and metals she intuitively creates her own versions of gemstones, hand cast and faceted in luminescent plastics. In the series Hologems, Couppee combines holographic and synthetic materials with resins, creating fantastical frozen corsage brooches, lustrous, glow-in-the-dark gems, and collaged ornaments that are at once over-the-top and elegant. The work is further inspired by growing up on the beach in Florida, the 90’s, Crown Jewels, and costume jewelry

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
