The Art of Personal Adornment

Since the beginning of time, man has adorned himself in some way or another. From tatoos to haute couture, the human body has been a living stage for personal expression. Perhaps one of the most ancient forms of adornment is jewelry. Jewelry has been a part of human culture and history for...well...ever. Some of the first archeological discoveries were of beads. Traded, collected and used as currency, beads and jewelry are ancient and ever-evolving examples of human artistic experssion.

This Friday, the Gallery is proud to present a one-night show with Italian jewelry designer Donatella Linari. Donatella has traveled the globe in search of antiquities and beads for her singular designs. From the Amazon to Egypt she has collected an amazing array of ancient talismans, beads and bits of history she transforms into stunning jewelry. Her works are shown around the world!

Please come meet Donatella and marvel at her collection. Friday, January 14, from 6 - 9 PM. Jewelry lovers, this is for YOU!
