Lone Star College-Montgomery Features Jewelry Exhibit Equilibrium
Published on: January 29, 2010
Lone Star College-Montgomery's Center for the Arts presents Equilibrium
, a collection of jewelry and drawings by Mary Rogers and Heidi Gerstacker. The collection will be on display February 8 through March 4 in the Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery (Building D).
On Tuesday, February 16, from 12 - 2 p.m., there will be a reception in the gallery to celebrate the opening of the exhibit.
In this exhibition, Rogers and Gerstacker explore the idea of equilibrium in contemporary studio jewelry and drawings. Together, they’ve examined the reality of production lines and the need to create “one-off” work. Drawing on a variety of influences, distractions, and realities, their work in precious materials has been transformed into wearable jewelry and tableware.
Working drawings and sketchbook pages are included in the exhibit as insight to their design processes.
“Rogers and Gerstacker are professional artists that will impact our students’ experience in creating, showing, and selling art,” said Deborah Ellington, professor of art at LSC-Montgomery. “This exhibit portrays that drawing and pre-work is the catalyst of all finished pieces.”
The Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery is a teaching gallery used for the instruction of students at LSC-Montgomery. The presentations and artwork provided are free to the community The gallery is open Monday-Friday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
