Intro
Parallels, an exhibition organized by University of Georgia Associate Professor of Jewelry and Metals Mary Hallam Pearse, places the work of two divergent, yet connected artists side-by-side. 
 

Artist list

Sondra Sherman, Jonathan Wahl
Brooklyn-based artist Jonathan Wahl investigates scale and perception in his heroic, often abstracted charcoal drawings of Victorian mourning jewelry and precious gems. Sondra Sherman, living and working across the country in San Diego, examines the role of jewelry by making corsages and neckpieces based on images of medical botanical forms and the California freeway landscape. These pieces are meant to probe the context of jewelry and allude to the psychological states of their wearer.  Placed parallel to one another, Wahl’s drawings and Sherman’s jewelry offer an opportunity to interrogate and reflect upon how lack of color, divergent scale, and format can generate a deeper commentary on the meaning of jewelry and ornament. 

Opening: 29th January 6 - 8 pm
Workshop: (In)formed age 30th January 10 -15 am at Thomas Street Jewelry Studio
Ann Orr Memorial Reception and Gallery Talk: 29th January 2:30 at Gallery 307
