Check out our latest artist interview with illustrator and maker, Rose Wong! Rose is one of the participating artists in the Omnibus Treasury Exhibition, is a recent graduate from Pratt Institute, a talented maker, and a great person to talk to about style, studio practice, and inspiration!
I’m really excited for Light Grey Art Lab’s new show opening tonight called The Omnibus Treasury! It’s all collections of illustrated jewelry; my collection is titled Geometricameo, and I bet you can figure out what that means, no? Above is the pendant I came up with. These were so fun although I felt challenged by the small size; I would love to experiment with bigger statement jewelry at some time (ceramics maybe?)! That’s just how I roll anyway. Lots of gold and lots of bold.
In retrospect, this palette almost looks exactly like the blanket I had when I first moved to Arizona. It all comes full circle!
The show displays collections of jewelry designed by a number of different artists. For mine, I decided to do a collection of cute kitty jewelry, no surprises there.
For those of you local to Minneapolis who want to check it out, the opening reception is tonight, from 7-10pm and the pieces will be on display in the gallery through July 3rd.
If you’d like a set of kitty jewelry for yourself, you can purchase the pieces at the show in person, or online here! http://shop.lightgreyartlab.com/product/charm-ing-kitties-collection-by-chelsea-kenna
Preview for my piece for LGAL’s upcoming Omnibus Treasury show, combining the two biggest things in my artistic life: illustration and jewelry. I know I pretty much never (except that one time) post any of my day job stuff here, but since I actually work on designing and modeling (sculpting) jewelry about 8 hours a day, and pretty much have to think in a considerably limited palette of shapes and colors, it was very refreshing to work on a piece that involved illustration as the finished product. Be sure to check out the other (awesome) artists participating as well.
Everyone is posting their peeks for The Omnibus Treasury show over at Light Grey Art Lab, and here;s mine! My theme was Fat Fruity Dovers, where I focused on the colors and patterns of fruit doves like the Luzon Pigeon and black Naped Dove. No pictures of the actual finished jewelry yet but here is my sketch for how it should go and the finished artwork. Undecided about whether or not I should flip the necklace idea with the bracelet.
If you’re in Minneapolis you should check out the opening, May 30th from 7-10pm. You can also order the finished pieces online one the show opens. Another post with links later!
My Illustrated Jewelry series for Light Grey Art Lab’s “Omnibus Treasury” show! Currently on display in the gallery until July 3rd. Check out a synopsis of the show on Light Grey’s website here. About 30 artists created beautiful, adorable, wearable artwork. The best thing is that it’s all available to purchase in LGAL’s online shop!!!!
Wow! The jewelry illustration that I did for the “Omnibus Treasury” show at Light Grey Art Lab is finally released!!! The design becomes a real piece of jewelry. You couldn’t know how exciting I was when I first saw it. Although I cannot attend to the opening reception tonight, I am so proud of this show and all other collections in the show are so well-done!!
Again, big thanks to the Light Grey Art Lab crews of their hard-working and helping each artists to assemble their unique collection.
Hope you like the show and please check it out here!
I recently had the honor to work with Light Grey Art Lab again and create a collection of jewelry for their current show, The Omnibus Treasury. I’ve worked with them three times before, and they consistently come up with the coolest ideas for shows.
Here’s the artwork I did, inspired by melanistic jaguars and protea flowers, and the beautiful jewelry collection, titled Jungle Lord, they made out of it!
Here’s a link to the show, please check out the pieces everyone created! They all turned out fantastic!
