Quirks of Art - Art Escape Weekend
May 28, 10:00 – 6:00 and May 29, 12:00 – 6:00
Two not-to-be-missed jewelry trunk shows will have you “escaping” all weekend! Elaine B Jewelry is available for the entire month of May. This Charlottesville artist’s sterling and gold earrings, necklaces and bracelets are strong, yet dainty sculptural designs that feature reclaimed materials and geometric shapes. Also available in May, Yipes! Designs will transform Quirks of Art into a paradise of natural wonders and colorful, adoptable creatures. Artist Joyce Fritz uses the millefiori “one thousand flower” technique to transform polymer clay into the patterns of butterfly wings, beetle shells and lizard skins. Each piece is then embellished with recycled wire, glass beads and metallic leaf to create gorgeous brooches, scatter pins, earrings and necklaces.
