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!

The Tiara Show – Crowing Glory

Crowning Glory: Ruling our own destinies, directing our own paths

March 1-31, 2018

Opening Reception March 2, 6:8:30 with live models!

Chief, Queen, Tsar, Kaiser, Monarch, Caliph. The words conjure images of power and pageantry, impressive jewels, and imposing headdresses, crowns, and tiaras. Thought history ruling over others usually meant belonging to the” right” family and class – and displaying the associated billing that demonstrated with sparking intensity their wealth, power, and good taste.

In today’s turbulent times, Crowing Glory explores the symbol of rule, and puts it squarely on the head of every viewer, every citizen, and every identity. The creators of these pieces embrace diverse cultural, artist, historic and social narratives to celebrate our own power, as well as tackling the engineering challenges of creating crows that will fit ad stay on the head!

The House Rules! 2017 Group Exhibition and ACLU Fundraiser

WHAT IS THE HOUSE RULES!? It’s a celebration of studio members, helpers and employees; all those vital to the success of Danaca Design. This event features works in the gallery by these outstanding people. Traditionally it has been a fundraiser for our Jewelry Art Stimulus Scholarship however this year we’ve decided to change it up a bit, instead we will use this event to raised funds for the American Civil Liberties Union.

The theme for our special exhibition is, MAY DAY! This could be a cry for help, a day to celebrate worker’s rights or simply a day to relish in flowers. A minimum of 50% of sales from these special exhibition pieces will be donated to the ACLU. Friday night, May 5, will be our show reception. On Friday night a minimum of 25% of ALL SALES IN THE GALLERY will be donated to the ACLU. On Friday night we will also raffle a class of your choosing with 100% of raffle ticket sales going directly to the ACLU.

Please join us to share in our warm-hearted community and raise funds to protect our rights as Americans, no matter what your politics. Refreshments will be served with meze provided by Cafe Paloma.
