feature image: Linda Darty, The Forest We Didn’t Plant: Candlelight, enamel and sterlingThe Ohio Craft Museum will present “Alchemy 4,” an international exhibition of contemporary enamel works, September 17–October 20, 2017. The exhibition showcases 150 exquisite jewelry, objects, sculpture and installations by 98 artists—professional and students—from around the world. Organized by the Enamelist Society, this is the 16th international exhibition and the 12th juried student exhibition for the organization.
Among the artists represented is North Carolina enamelist/metalsmith Linda Darty creates vessels as well as jewelry. Her latest series, titled “Garden Badge,” is inspired by the “sentimental value of oldbadge collections, and the memories they provide long after they are worn,” she says. The work pays homage to her mother and her garden club. “These badges pay tribute to their efforts to create and formalize a time in their lives to celebrate beauty, community and friendship, while also expressing my ongoing inspiration from nature.”
The museum will hold a closing reception on Friday, October 20, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
