Drawn to Fire

October 3, 2017 - October 29, 2017

Drawn to Fire presents collaborative works by enamelist/ metalsmith Nan Lopata and graphite artist Drew Parris. Nan fires Drew’s drawings on enamel and then sets them as jewelry. The two artists met when they were juried into the Torpedo Factory in 2016, and discovered that they shared a love of narrative imagery and the ‘lost and found’ qualities in art. Works include wearable and wall art.
