Ombré Gallery presents GLOSSY, a juried art jewelry exhibition curated by director Jenna Shaifer and hosted by Plumb Club, to debut at the Plumb Club Experience at JCK Las Vegas 2019.
Glossy features contemporary artist jewelers inspired by the images and messages presented in magazines, also known as ‘glossies,” for the paper on which they are printed. Glossies serve as a vital communication tool for messaging in the fashion industry. The fashion world is often influenced by celebrity, art, films, and literature. Artists are also responding to the material culture around them. From enamel and textiles to diamonds and zippers, the jewelry artists in this exhibition investigate the medium that captures the zeitgeist of our times.
“It’s exciting to partner with The Plumb Club at JCK. I hope that the Glossy exhibition brings attention, curiosity, discussion, and interest to the field of art jewelry as well as inspire attendees to create their own in-store experience,” said Jenna Shaifer, Director and Owner of Ombré Gallery.
