The ten artists exhibiting work in the Glass-Wear
show at the Craft Alliance (6640 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-725-1177 or www.craftalliance.org
) normally create jewelry, which implies a reliance on "jewels." But for Glass-Wear
, they were challenged to work with glass instead; the results are luminous objects that draw their value (aesthetic and monetary) not from the materials but from the artifice employed in making them. Check out those tiger-striped pretties in Ginger Kelly's bracelet you can't get that from a diamond. Glass-Wear
remains on display through Sunday, July 9.
May 22-July 9
