Patina Gallery 2013 Exhibition Schedule
May 3 – May 26
The first event of the year, World Jewelry for the 21st Century will delight, and maybe stretch, art jewelry aficionados. Materials include wood, steel, cotton thread, leather parchment and even colored pencils, and techniques range from traditional metalsmithing to the book arts and needlework. Artists from Greece, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Korea, Japan, Israel and the US participate.
June 28 – July 21
The second exhibit of 2013, Judith Kaufman and Lilly Fitzgerald, The Ecstasy of Gold, coincides with the opening of the Santa Fe Opera. Both artists work in high karat gold and colored gems. Often exploring contrasts of texture and volume, their jewelry seems talismanic, a little ancient and mysterious in its opulence. Both are established, with careers of nearly 40 years. Kaufman’s work is found in the permanent collection of New York’s Museum of Art and Design.
July 5- July 28
Next in the calendar line-up is Continuum, an exhibit with artist Claire Kahn, whose crocheted bead necklaces reference the intricate patterning of snakes. Each of Kahn’s two previous Patina exhibits offered some new variation for her collectors. Continuum will be no exception. The event is scheduled in conjunction with the International Folk Art Market and Art Santa Fe, International Art Fair. Patina is thrilled to be Kahn’s exclusive representative.
August 2 – August 25
Peter Schmid & Atelier Zobel Return marks the 12th Patina exhibition with this internationally renowned German design studio. The Atelier has set a standard for art jewelry recognized by collectors around the world. Established by artist Michael Zobel, the studio’s refined signature is organic, bold and highly modern. Peter Schmid continues the studio’s tradition and brings a new quality of refinement to the designs. His award winning works are extensively published.
October 4 – October 27
The calendar resumes in October with Ingrained, an exhibit of works from two masters of the wood medium. Liam Flynn, working in Ireland, turns and carves vessels of sublime simplicity, with voluptuous forms and gently undulating surface. Gustav Reyes receives accolades for his wood jewelry, bracelets, earrings and necklaces that reveal the rich nuance of wood.
December 6 – December 29
December and the holidays call for magic and the final two exhibitions of the year provide it. The first, Abstraction, features the works of Ivan Barnett, Patina Gallery director and an artist of considerable acclaim. He brings a new group of mobiles ranging in scale from 3’ – 8’ in height. He also presents photography, a medium new to his resume, with a group of photographs taken in China in 2012. Barnett’s works reside in the permanent collection of the Museum of International Folk Art. Abstraction is Barnett’s first Patina exhibition since 2010.
December 20 – January 12
Jewelry artist Barbara Heinrich returns for Delicacies, her second Patina exhibit. Heinrich's 18k gold jewelry set with superb colored gems has won numerous awards. Known for the restraint and understatement of her work, Heinrich’s jewelry exudes confident elegance.
Patina Gallery’s owners Allison and Ivan Barnett are dedicated to offering superior works in the fields of art jewelry, clay, sculpture and studio wood, and the gallery’s reputation as one of the most beautiful galleries in Santa Fe continues to grow. Patina’s 2013 calendar promises the enriching and soul-stirring experience that Patina’s friends have come to expect.
