“Gary Griffin, Honoring a Master”
to August 11
Patina Gallery honors Gary Griffin, SNAG Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, with an exhibition of works, models and sketches spanning his forty year career. A master craftsman, teacher, writer and critic, his varied contributions to craft and the metal arts in America are significant.
“Judith Kaufman and Lilly Fitzgerald, Ecstasy of Gold”
to July 21
Both artists work in high karat gold and colored gems. Often exploring contrasts of texture and volume, their jewelry seems talismanic, a little ancient and mysterious in its opulence.
A new exhibition by Israeli artist Deganit Stern-Schocken is on view at Gallery Loupe through April 30, 2013. In this newest body of work, Stern-Schocken explores her earlier forms and imbues them with weightlessness. This investigation stems from her interest in the ‘non-object’ and focuses on the space between the objects rather than on the object itself.
