Kat Cole: Urban Color

September 6, 2017 - September 26, 2017

Facèré Jewelry Art Gallery is pleased to present Urban Color, an exhibition of new work by artist Kat Cole. Fascinated by the built environment, Cole reinterprets its colors, textures, and architecture in intimate, wearable sculptures. When worn on the body, her finished works in steel, brass, and enamel, speak to city and landscape.


"I find meaning through the observance and intimate awareness of the places I inhabit. With each geographic change, I have become more attuned to the natural and man-made attributes that make a location unique. I look to the built environment of the city where I live for the formal qualities of my work: materials, forms, color and surface quality. The steel and concrete structures that surround us are evidence of human inhabitants — past and present. Monumental structures are interpreted into the intimate scale of jewelry and are completed when worn on the landscape of the body." - Kat Cole
