Wearable Nostalgia

We're back from our Pittsburgh adventures! The opening of Wearable Nostalgia went really well on Saturday despite some snowy weather. Luke & Eloy is a wonderful gallery located in the Lawrenceville area of Pittsburgh, and is beautifully curated by owner Brigitte Martin (of crafthaus fame.)

My work looked great displayed in two large glass cases near the front of the shop. Dave and I had a lovely time chatting with Brigitte and her patrons. We met some wonderful people including a lot of local artists and metalsmiths from the Pittsburgh area (I even had a chance to meet ROY - who was kind enough to bring me a bag of Barbie dolls!) Thanks to everyone who came out and showed their support, it really meant a lot.

The exhibition has already gotten some great press! It was featured on ABC 4 evening news during a segment entitled "Check it Out" (watch the clip here.) and it was also mentioned on Pittsburgh's POPcity media blog.

I'll be revealing more photos in the days to come but here's a few of the works that were part of the show. If you didn't get a chance to make it to the opening, and/or you're interested in purchasing work from the exhibit, the show will be on view at Luke & Eloy Gallery through January 16th (contact info here.)

Aw, thanks Miss J! Wish you could've been there too!

I love the Lotus pendant was it a custom piece you made for someone?

Margaux Lange said...

Thanks Jean! No, it was made for my solo show in Pittsburgh.
