Event Description

"Cupid's HEART Shaped Arrow"

Opening Reception: Friday, February 1, 2013 from 5-8PM

Palette Contemporary Art and Craft presents, "Cupid's HEART Shaped Arrow", featuring contemporary wall sculptures by Kent Townsend and unique jewelry by Aki Takemoto, Yukako Kojima, Mel Stiles, Kimberly Morris , and Melanie Ungvarsky.

Kent Townsend is well known for creating fine wooden furniture. His new creative endeavor is making geometric wall sculptures which are sleek and modern. Kent uses a router mounted on a trammel to scribe the arcs into solid blocks of medium density fiberboard, and finishes them with colored lacquer. When describing this work, he states, "They represent three dimensional works with patterns of geometric forms and intense color."  Kent Townsend's wall sculptures come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and he can also make custom color pieces in any size.

We have a great collection of fine art jewelry. Aki Takemoto and Yukako Kojima both live and work in Japan and produce glass sculptures and refined glass jewelry.  Aki utilizes rich enamels and works with fusing layers of glass to create intricate patterns of color and one of a kind sculptures and jewelry.  

Yukako works with laminated sheet glass by adhering layers of glass together with remarkable precision.  In describing her artistry, Yukako states, "By cutting layered sheet glass, I create patterns of overlapped planes, which produce various layers of light inside of an object that give impressions which vary depending on the viewer's position."  Her jewelry pieces are stylish and elegant and will surely be admired by their recipients.

Mel Stiles has applied her architectural background into her jewelry making, by integrating her design sensibility to create modern works with an industrial edge.  She uses brushed aluminum, stainless steel, and silver, filled with vibrant resins in contemporary designs and patterns.   
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
Kimberly Morris uses a variety of techniques including riveting, roll printing, and forging.  Her work begins by forming a shape out of copper, applying texture and chemical patinas to create colors. The final piece is then sealed with wax and riveted to a base of oxidized silver. 
      
Melanie Ungvarsky's glass pendants are embedded with either fine silver, bronze or copper.  When the glass and the metal are heated together, the metals oxidize creating color within the glass, she then cuts, sands, and polishes the glass into its final form. She creates and assembles all of the silver elements by hand.   

Please  join us at on Friday, February 1 from 5-8PM and see what we have to offer for your Valentine's sweetheart.
