Intro
Patina Gallery in Santa Fe, N.M., proudly presents Gracefully Capturing Space, the ultimate expression of one of Erich Zimmermann’s passions – flying. The renowned German jewelry maker thinks of the heavens as his third dimension of creative space. His new exhibition of contemporary jewelry opens April 6, 2018, continuing to May 6, 2018. The exhibition opening complements the Parsons Dance performance that is scheduled in Santa Fe on the same day as the gallery opening. Zimmermann finds special meaning in both the art of modern dance and the concept of space. As a private pilot, the Augsburg, Germany, metalsmith imagines jewelry in the context of light and space and as an instrument for illuminating and celebrating the grace and precision of human movement. Zimmermann paused recently in his studio to talk about Gracefully Capturing Space.
