Where Jewelry is Art
The Plumb Club partnered with Ombré Gallery for an exhibition called “Glossy”. The exhibition was created and curated by Jenna Shaifer, Director of the gallery. Ombré is the only art jewelry gallery of its kind in the mid-west, specializing in contemporary art jewelry. It exhibits and sells wearable, one-of-a-kind pieces crafted from both traditional and unexpected materials, techniques and subjects. The gallery’s mission is to be a conduit to connect artists and the community while highlighting the relationships between art, craft, fashion, and design.
The exhibition, Glossy, featured 25 contemporary artist jewelers inspired by the images and messages presented in magazines, also known as ‘glossies,” for the paper on which they are printed. Glossies serve as a vital communication tool for messaging in the fashion industry. They are a conduit between the maker, the retailer, and the consumer, not only conveying a designers’ vision in an upcoming season, but also pitch the forecast in trends for beauty, color, texture, pattern, and form. From enamel to textiles and diamonds to zippers, the jewelry artists in this exhibition investigate the mediums that capture the spirit, ambience and trends of our time.
