I am honored to have a variety of my silver hollowware and jewelry included in the contemporary gallery of the exhibition “An Eye for Opulence: Charleston through the Lens of the Rivers Collection”. The exhibition will be on display November 21 – January 10, 2016 at The Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, FL.
The main focus of this unique exhibition tells the story of Charleston’s golden era—from the colonial to antebellum city—through the lens of the Rivers Collection and enhanced by decorative and fine arts from Charleston’s public institutions. Featuring more than 100 objects, this exhibition comprises the exceptional holdings of John M. Rivers Jr. in addition to key loans from the Gibbes Museum of Art, Historic Charleston Foundation, and select objects from Drayton Hall and The Charleston Museum. Recognizing that significant examples of Charleston furniture and silver were dispersing outside the Charleston area, John M. Rivers Jr., whose family has been in Charleston continuously since 1670, began forming the Rivers Collection in 1988.
It is an enormous compliment to have my silver designs presented as a supporting element to this exciting exhibition along with several other talented contemporary Charleston artists. Many thanks to the exceptionally brilliant curator Brandy Culp for her commitment and hard work on this exhibition!
