Laurie Hall: On Parade
August 22, 2018 - September 12, 2018
Reception: Sunday, August 26 at 1:00 PM
Facèré presents On Parade, an exhibition of new jewelry from artist Laurie Hall, August 22 - September 12, 2018. In her new series, Hall explores the idea of esprit du corps - the energy that connects strangers out in the world - in a series of work that celebrates the lifeforce created by people working together. Hall is inspired by the idea that we are "all necessary to each other."
The work is a continuation of themes Hall explored in her necklace, Protesters, from 1988. Laurie Hall is a long-time artist and educator from the Pacific Northwest, whose work has exhibited across the country. In 2016, her work was featured in Craft in America's exhibition Politically Speaking: New American Ideals in Contemporary Jewelry. A interview with Laurie Hall, conducted by Craft in America, exploring the political bent of her work, can be found here: http://www.craftinamerica.org/qa-with-laurie-hall-politically-speaking-jewelry-artist/. Along with Nancy Worden, Ramona Solberg, Kiff Slemmons, and Ron Ho, Hall is part of what has been called the Northwest School of Jewelers, an influential jewelry art movement centered around an eclectic style of narrative and composition.
We may have other items from this exhibition which are not shown online and some white-dot items can be special ordered. Please call or come by!
