college’s Ross Gallery Feb. 6 – March 6 and will include work by seven emerging and established artists, including Eliana Arenas, Claire Avery, Mi-Sook Hur, Katie Poterala, Caitie Sellers, Courtney Starrett and Loring Taoka.

Guests will be treated to a variety of techniques and materials, including enamel, plastic, resin, bronze, silver, mirror and silicone rubber, among others. The pieces will challenge the traditional perceptions of jewelry as body adornment, while exploring metal processes and techniques.

Like any other art media, the pieces in this show are the product of material and conceptual exploration, and so will contribute to the academic dialogue surrounding jewelry and metalworking as an art form.

WHEN:
February 6 – March 6, 2013
10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday – Thursday
Opening Reception: February 13, 5 – 7 p.m.

WHERE: Ross Gallery, Overcash Center, CPCC Central Campus
