Jewelry: Ribboned & Recycled

We have some very pretty ribbon jewelry on display here at The Gift Shop. They are made by jewelry artist Altha Wargelin from a lovely fiber that is a cross between yarn and ribbon. The color choices range from bright and vibrant, to natural, and pastels. Each necklace is adjustable. Some, as you can see, also have matching earrings.

Another of our jewelry artists, Janna Bissett makes her necklace pendants from recycled / found objects. Some are fashioned from camera parts, some from typewriter pieces, and others from bike parts! All are really interesting. The larger/chunkier ones may even appeal to those hard-to-shop-for men in your life.

Come in to see these and other treasures soon, because Saturday October 19 is the last day to purchase from The Gift Shop. After that date we will begin to prepare The Anton Art Center for our annual Christmas Market.

This week is also the last week to see the Monstrous and Things I See exhibits.

The Gift Shop does Anton Art Center.

I have shared with you before about the cards here at The Gift Shop being little pieces of frame-worthy art. Well, we also have cards created by photographer Michael Robinson that depict several different views of our own Anton Art Center. They can be sent as cards, of course, but they are lovely framed.

Here are three examples of Mr. Robinson's cards. Come in to see the rest.

And while you are at The Gift Shop be sure to go upstairs to the Community Gallery for "Things I See".
This show features original works inspired by a visit to the DIA's Elsworth Kelly exhibit. We open "Things I See" with a reception on Saturday, October 12 from 1pm to 3pm.
