Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present Silver Linings: Stories in Silver, a collection of new works created by Artist-In-Residence Blair Anderson and the faculty of SilverWorks Studio & Gallery. Continuing in her tradition of telling stories in wearable art, Ms. Anderson's 2018 collection will focus on this metaphor for optimism in the abstract. Using silver and stones meaning is infused in the creations, which  attract wearers who may have experienced a similar story. 

 

SilverWorks faculty will be showing their best work, and a select number of student works will be juried into the show, including featured work by SilverWorks Junior-Artist-In-Residence Louis Kutyla. 

 

In an Artist's Talk, Kutyla will be discussing his works created during his residency at SilverWorks. He will also be answering questions about his concept piece, "Freeze," a National Scholastic Art Awards gold medal winner that challenges the boundaries of adornment while contributing to the ongoing conversation about gun vioence in our country.
