Jewelry in a New Iron Age by 60 International Artists

Velvet da Vinci San Francisco exhibition
March 1 – April 14, 2013
Artists’ reception Friday, March 1, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m.

FERROUS, an exhibition of jewelry using iron, steel, and steel alloys. Although the use of iron dates back more than two thousand years, this humble material is more commonly used for agriculture and industrial purposes than adornment. A significant exception is the Berlin Iron Jewelry of the early 19th century. The Prussian Royal family funded the uprising against Napoleon by encouraging wealthy citizens to exchange their precious gold and silver for intricately fabricated iron jewelry
.Intricacy is just one aspect the 60 artists of FERROUS explore with this versatile material. Known for its strength and lightness, the steel and iron jewelry of FERROUS is both rusty and shiny, sheet and wire, bejeweled and modest. The exhibition will take place simultaneously at Velvet da Vinci Gallery in San Francisco and as a virtual exhibition at crafthaus online. In May FERROUS will travel to 18Karat Gallery in Toronto, Canada as part of The Society of North American Goldsmith’s annual conference.

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.
