“The Elegance of Amy Greely”, at The Venue

On Friday, May 30, beginning at 6:00 p.m., The Venue will host a Reception for Amy Greely, and a special, one week feature exhibition and sale of her finely crafted metal bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.

Amy began her art education at the Herron School of Art. Further studies at Indiana University provided her knowledge and experience in traditional metalsmithing techniques. In 1998 the Amy Greely Studio offered its first line of jewelry. Now represented at The Venue and other prestigious galleries throughout the country, Amy has been juried into the Indiana Artisan Group.

In Amy’s hands, sterling silver is formed, textured and enhanced with an array of patina choices offering a rich and varied palette. Further additions of gold/silver bi-metal add another layer of contrasts resulting in a fresh approach to traditional processes. Using simple shapes as a canvas and precious metal as a medium, surface textures and color become a language with which to share moments where time seems to stand still and awareness expands, inviting calm and quietude. Each piece is a tiny body sculpture that helps communicate the personal sensibilities of the wearer. Elegant!

Amy will be present, refreshments will be served, and our fine selection of paintings, jewelry, ceramics, and artistic handcrafted gifts will also be on display for purchase. Free parking is available in the lot at 4th and Grant. This show will run at The Venue until June 5th. Join Us.
