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!
