La Vie Boheme

July 16, 2014 at 2:33 am (Uncategorized)

This Thursday night, I will participate in my first exhibition in almost four years.

The Bohemian Bash Art Show benefits the Cary Creative Center, a non-profit providing artistic materials and educational programs to promote reuse of discarded materials.

My first jewelry collection, The Ephemera Collection, celebrated everyday things often taken for granted like postcards, postage stamps, and labels. While working on The Ephemera Collection, I started incorporating found objects in my work. For Through the Looking Glass, the last exhibition I participated in with Emily Cash and Susan Parrish, both Susan and I used found objects to bring dimension to Emily’s fantastic Wonderland drawings. For an inside look at Through the Looking Glass, click here.

Two of my favorite pieces from the Through the Looking Glass exhibition, including the Altered Book and Alice in Wonderland Talisman will be on display Thursday night at The Bohemian Bash Art Show at Cypress Manor in Cary. For more information or for tickets, visit The Bohemian Bash website.
