Event description

Description

Join us for the closing lecture of Adorning Boston and Beyond: Contemporary Studio Jewelry Then + Now, delivered by the exhibition's Guest Curator, Heather White. Heather's lecture, "They Did What?!! Mid-Twentieth Century Studio Jewelers and How Their Groundbreaking Work Continues to Shape the Field Today," will explore the work of artists shown in the current exhibition, and how their work was influenced by mid-twentieth century jewelry artists. The majority of the jewelers in Adorning Boston and Beyond have deep ties to the Northeast, and many lived, worked, or studied in Boston. Several artists on view will be present to speak with attendees after the lecture.

Adorning Boston and Beyond features the contemporary artistic heirs of seminal artists working in and around Boston and beyond from the mid-twentieth century. Artists such as Alexander Calder, Art Smith and Margaret De Patta established the Northeast and other areas as hubs of innovation and creativity in studio jewelry. Contemporary artists that have lived, worked and been educated primarily in Boston continue this thread of innovation in contemporary studio jewelry, which focuses on one-of-a-kind handmade pieces that emphasize creative and expression and design, making the genre ideal for experimentation in form, material and concept.

Guest Curator Heather White is a MassArt Jewelry Professor, Studio Jeweler and Curator.
