Experimenting with the silver platter

. December 2, 2014.

While other gallery shows are dedicated to holiday gifts, visitors to River House Arts will experience exploratory and innovative fine art with Passion and Adornment, featuring the sculptural jewelry of Amy Beeler.  An award-winning, Oregon-based silversmith, Beeler will present 21 works of exaggerated and engrossing jewelry that gallery co-owner Paula Baldoni describes as “an exploration of the intersection of jewelry and sculpture . . . rooted in [Beeler’s] long-standing fascination with botanical forms.” Working with silver as the primary medium, the inclusion of materials such as Tahitian pearls, 14k gold, jasper and human hair will excite adventurous fashionistas. Holiday shoppers are welcomed, as Amy also presents wearable, affordable works.

Opens Friday, December 5 with a reception from 6-9pm. Through January 17. 11am-6pm, Tuesday through Saturday. River House Arts. 115 W Front St., Perrysburg. 419-874-8900, river-house-arts.com
