This show’s theme is the exchange of information, whether in the literal sense, as with words and symbols, or in the figurative sense: the communication that occurs through visual and emotional connection.
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.
