FLORA... AND SOME FAUNA AT THE BALTIMORE JEWELRY CENTER

I am pleased to be part of the show,       Flora... and Some Fauna at the Baltimore Jewelry Center this summer! It will be on view June 10 – July 29with an opening reception June 10 from 6 - 9pm.

From cave paintings and illuminated manuscripts to Art Nouveau objects and still lifes, flora and fauna have been a continuous theme in our visual culture. It is only logical that plants and animals play such a large role in the decorative arts. Humans have a strong connection to other living organisms, we rely on one another for emotional and physical nourishment. Sometimes that relationship is comforting, other times threatening. This connection may be what leads us to adorn our surroundings and ourselves with flora and fauna.

Flora…and Some Fauna is an exhibition that will look at current representations of plants and animals in contemporary jewelry.
