Opening Reception: Friday July 11, 6-8 pm
Artist’s Talk: 6:30 pm
An exhibition catalog is available.
In the ten years since Joyas Jóias, Velvet da Vinci’s first exhibition of Latin American jewelry, there has been a growing awareness and appreciation for the achievements of contemporary jewelers in Mexico, Argentina, Peru and Brazil. For our exhibition, Delirio y Cordura (Delirium and Sanity) we concentrate on contemporary Chilean jewelry artists. Each jeweler was inspired by the themes of delirium and sanity, choosing one or both concepts. The idea of harmony and balance versus insanity and irrationality influence the creation of each work through an exploration of shape, color, material, and concept. Chaos, out of order.
