Today and Everyday

Thomas Gentille signing my catalog.

Today I moved some pieces forward, finished others.

The other night I had a wonderful and inspiring evening at the opening of Thomas Gentille's show "21st Century" at Gallery Loupe. He embodies such a a long term, dedicated creative life. The show is entirely brooches. All are geometric, many rectangular, the materials , textures and finishes are where the variation commences. The gallery was lively, filled with many jewelers, curators, and collectors. It was a reminder of the importance of recognizing and celebrating creative work.

This Friday 29th at 1 pm, Thomas will give a lecture at the Montclair Museum of Art, Montclair, NJ.
