For the month of July, Arts in the Village Gallery presents “Old School, New Twist,” pairing nostalgic photographs by J. Riley Stewart, with elaborate wire-wrapped fossil and mineral pendants by Dana Jansen.
J. Riley Stewart’s landscapes are a romantic expression of man’s influence on nature’s vista. Using “old school” methods like a film-based view camera and traditional film development in his darkroom, J. Riley personally renders each fine art print with inspiring results.
Jewelry artist Dana Jansen uses sterling silver and copper wire to encase mineral specimens, stones and fossils to produce one-of-a-kind pendants with intricate designs. Dana’s beautiful wearable art is truly a new “twist” on traditional jewelry design.
Meet the artists during a free, open to the public reception on Saturday, July 13th from 4 – 8 p.m.
Event begins at 10:00AM
Presented by: Arts in the Village Gallery
