Beyond Borders in the Gallery

A Show of Boxes and Lockets

November 1-30, 2018

Beyond Borders – Containing Objects, Releasing Ideas
From lockets, poison rings, and reliquaries to pill boxes, compacts, and vessels, containers are limited only to the borders created by their maker. In this show, artists rendered materials into vessels that explore these borders- including the perimeter, the fit of the lid, the hinge or clasp, and the joining of parts – to create containers that hint at the hidden, and explore the world concealed within their walls.

Gem Show

October 4th, Thursday night, 5pm-7:30pm

Greg Bracati of Custom Faceting will bring a wide variety of top quality semiprecious and precious gemstones (faceted and not) for all your jewelry needs. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity. Greg has stones to match a variety of price points!
