Regional jewelry artist, Gabriel Guzman, will be onsite at Angela Lensch Gallery over the holiday weekend for part 2 of a 3 part series of exhibits: “The Marvelous World of Jewelry.”  Part 2 features Guzman’s latest collection of hand-crafted jewlery on Saturday, August 31st from 10am to 5pm.

“Though my formal training is as a scientist, I have always embraced a full spectrum of the arts; so, the creation of my jewelry seems to be a very natural extension.  I have been fortunate to have lived in five different countries on three different continents, and always so inspired by the beauty that different cultures embrace.  I want my work to be first mindful and respectful of the symbolism of these cultures.”

Guzman’s body of work pays homage to the main cultural influences in his designs: the Asante People from Ghana in West Africa, through a collection of Adinkra Symbols; the Celtic, Norse (Viking), and Mayan cultures, represented in various pieces reminiscent of the ancient, but revived into the modern.

Guzman’s collection is vast; from silver with brass spinner rings, square rings with or without gems, copper fire and blue earrings, copper and silver enameled earrings, leather bracelets and necklaces with mixed metal pendants echoing the symbols of the past and inspiration for the future and so much more. 

Photo Aug 03, 5 47 09 PM“My love for both, metalsmithing and digital design now allows me to combine the modern with the old; contemporary artisanry, digitally conceived jewelry with the richness and uniqueness of handcrafted finishing,” states Guzman.

Stop into Angela Lensch Gallery over Labor Day weekend and enjoy this diverse collection of handmade jewelry. Refreshments and light snacks will be available throughout the event.

COPPER WIND SCULPTURES

DAVE RIEMER

COPPER WIND SCULPTURES

Angela Lensch Gallery is honored to be featuring the impressive outdoor copper wind sculptures by renowned, regional artist, Dave Riemer. You may recognize his mesmerizing copper wind sculptures from Egg Harbor’s ‘Harbor View Park’ as well as many private collections and galleries around the Midwest.   The flowering gardens of Angela Lensch Gallery now feature over a dozen different styles and sizes of Dave’s amazing  kinetic sculptures. From polished copper to blue/green patina and “Tornados” to “Starflares”

Using the slightest breeze these sculptures move with graceful sweeping arms, changing with the light as they cast complex geometric shadows over your garden. Guaranteed for years of maintenance free motion while remaining outdoors all year round. They will even continue to turn with a full load of snow on them!

Watching their motion has been described to be ‘as relaxing as watching a lazy river’.

Every sculpture is shaped and assembled by hand, using the highest quality bearings, copper, brass and stainless steel. Built to last for decades without maintenance, they will provide a graceful, peaceful motion to any garden.

The Marvelous World of Jewelry

#751 Blue coral necklaces

Blue Coral Necklaces

Angela Lensch Gallery is excited to host a two day Meet the Artist/Jewelry Trunk Show on Saturday and Sunday, June 29/30 from 10a-5p each day. The show will feature jewelry artist, Kay Flick. A lifelong Wisconsin resident, Kay studied Studio Arts at the University of Wisconsin. In addition to creating art jewelry, she’s done extensive work in textiles and porcelain, won numerous awards and has had work accepted into the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Neville Public Museum and the J. Michael Kohler Art Museum.

Kay’s latest collection showcases hand-crafted components from around the world; porcelain flowers from the American southwest, various ceramic and gemstone components from France, Belgium and Greece, to ‘Om’ prayer beads from Tibet to name just a few. She imaginatively combines these tiny gems into original, multi-cultural treasures which reflect her unique aesthetic.

Treat yourself to the elegance of hand-painted porcelain flower earrings. Or go casual with rustic earthenware and leather. Enjoy Kay’s whimsical adornments, perfect for summer fun.

Hand-painted porcelain flowers (available in variety of colors), Swarovski pearls, 14/20 gold

She says: “I cherish handmade beads from kindred craftspeople around the world. It’s as if each little creation honors its maker’s unique presence. Working with these beads, I feel closer to these people…it’s a way of knowing them.” In this way, each piece of Kay’s jewelry becomes a collaged tribute to the myriad people and cultures sharing this planet we call our own.

“I love Kay’s new collection for many reasons but my favorite takeaway is many of her necklaces are either leather or all beads, so people with metal allergies can wear her necklaces. In addition, many of these necklaces have a front closure, which makes them very easy to get on and off.” states gallery owner and fellow jewelry artist Angela Lensch

Sample a snack with a glass of wine and let us introduce you to Kay Flick and her ‘Marvelous World of Jewelry’ Saturday and Sunday, June 29/30, 2019. A truly diverse collection to please every spirit that dances in your heart.  Angela Lensch Gallery is open daily 10am to 5pm, closed Wednesdays and is located at the south end of Egg Harbor within the turn of the century log cabin, 7653 Highway 42. angelalenschgallery.com (920) 868-5088
