Intro
I experimented with the process of laser etching photographs of the former institute staff on mulberry leaves collected from the Museum's garden and pressed flat recounts Carolanne Patterson about one of the works she made when she was in Georgia. 
Jewelers'Werk Galerie is pleased to present Leaf People and Chandeliers, an exhibition of new work by artist Carolanne Patterson.
This exhibition is a collection of necklaces, objects, and drawings that stem from Patterson’s artist residency at the State Silk Museum in Tbilisi, Georgia. While there, she had access to the 19th and early 20th-century photographic archives from the Caucasian Sericulture Station, a research institute for the study of silk.

I experimented with the process of laser etching photographs of the former institute staff on mulberry leaves collected from the Museum's garden and pressed flat. The mulberry leaf is the only diet of the silkworm. This led to a study of laser etching on various leaves with a diversity of images such as the 1970's Soviet-era chandeliers currently hanging in the Museum, and the stray dogs who occupy the streets of Tbilisi Patterson recount when she talks about her piece named Leaf People.


Carolanne Patterson holds a BA in Art History from the University of Pittsburgh and a BFA and MFA in Metals from the State University of New York, New Paltz. She has won multiple prestigious international awards and exhibited worldwide. Additionally, Patterson has taught and lectured widely and currently serves as an adjunct professor at the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence.

The show opens on Saturday, November 12th with a reception to meet the artist from 1 – 4 pm.
