Ornamental Objet d’Art

Save the date for Indulge at BAM; Feb 5, 6, 7

January 29, 2010


Q What looks like abstract surrealist weaponry, feels like a weighty postmodern narrative, and sounds like earth, wind, and fire (not the band, the actual elements)?

A The art pieces at next weekend’s Indulge at Bellevue Arts Museum

Tough to call the work of the 30 North American artists (why yes, there are a handful of locals) included in what BAM calls a "marketplace" jewelry although of course the enamel, metalwork, glass, strung-gems, and other pieces are meant for adornment and accessorizing.

An opening bash on Friday Feb 5 from 6 – 9 gets you a sneak peak and a more exclusive audience with the designers and their wares; on Saturday and Sunday the show is open from 11 to 5; entrance is $10, or $14 for both the jewelry show and BAM exhibits.
