Compared to a Summer's Day - conjures up a natural world of inherent beauty. On view today through August 28th, this international group exhibition showcases the work of six jewelry artists who look to the natural world for inspiration. The title of the exhibition is a playful twist on Shakespeare's Sonnet 18, an ode to his beloved:
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,And summer's lease hath all too short a date......
One-of-a-kind pieces, including delicate floral enamel earrings, porcelain brooches with cicadas and butterflies, hand-pierced steel necklaces with painted botanical images, golden butterflies...... all come together to form this summer fantasy.
