Lexington, MA (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
Massachusetts studio jeweler and artist Jenne Rayburn will be among the artists exhibiting works at "Jewel Tones," an upcoming exhibition sponsored by The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society.
Jenne Rayburn, a Boston based designer, will present a capsule collection of handcrafted jewelry at a Metalworkers and Weavers exhibit in Lexington, MA from March 22nd through April 6th. The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society Gallery is located at 130 Waltham Street in downtown Lexington, Massachusetts. Gallery hours are Sunday through Monday 12PM - 4PM and Saturday 10AM - 4PM.
Sunday March 23rd the Gallery opens at noon and at 2PM guest speaker Munya Avigail Upin will present a lecture on the "History of Weaving in Contemporary Metals". The Exhibit will stay open until 5PM, and refreshments will be served. "I am thrilled to participate in this exciting exhibit," said Rayburn. "Art and fine craft that is being made in artist collectives such as the LACS captures an exciting energy, not the least because there is a place for creative innovation and multidisciplinary collaboration to exist."
Long known for showcasing work by local artists living in Massachusetts and New England, exhibits at The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society typically feature collaborations between the different guilds and artists. “Some of the most interesting work is often a result of collaboration," notes Rayburn of the combined exhibit of metalworker and weaver guilds. “Cross-discipline learning and sharing of artistic experiences can bring fresh perspectives to the work and the artists."
Jenne Rayburn is a member artist of the Metalworkers Guild at The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society. Membership in the Guild is by a jury process, and is for the lifetime of the juried member. The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society’s unique community, facility and resources enable local artists to practice their craft, learn new skills and sell their creations at the Society’s art gallery, which offers for sale original art and handmade crafts by local member artisans. With nearly 400 members, in nine guilds, the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society has provided a place where artists can gather, work, inspire one another and keep craft traditions alive for over 77 years.
