Out & About – Jewelry and Books

 

It’s just too nice to stay at home this weekend. The Weather Channel is forecasting some great temperatures… and a few clouds. But don’t let a chance of a large collection of very tiny droplets of water or ice crystals keep you inside. You should get Out & About this weekend have some bookish fun.

Below are a few fun things to do this weekend.

The Gallery at Reinstein-Ross

Jewelry from Books

Out and About - Jewelry and Books: RRG May, Four Fantastic Tales RingThis is the last weekend to view Read and Worn: Jewelry from Books at The Gallery at Reinstein/Ross

This exhibition features the work of five international artists who transform the pages of books and newspapers into unique works of wearable art jewelry. 

These artists are storytellers, who utilize the printed word as their form of expression. Whether using publications in their entirety, or simply using a few sheets of print, these artists give new life to the printed page. 

In the spirit of “intellectual recycling”, discarded newspapers and old books – literature, history and news – are given a second chance as bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings.  Out and About - Jewelry and Books: RRG Richmond 'To Have is to Be' Brooch copy  

The show will be on view through April 24th.
