Vintage and gems, May Artists of the Month

Join us for an Opening Reception Thursday May 8th, 5pm to 8pm featuring our May Artists of the Month:  Kerry Hawkins and Melanie Guerra.

Vintage, Past in the Present
Photography by Guild member Kerry Hawkins
I take my camera just about everywhere I go. I love to photograph cityscapes and window displays. I look for funky windows, especially with vintage displays, storefronts or signs. It is fun to go to a unfamiliar place and wander until I find the just the right window or store. I also, love to poke around vintage and antique shops. It is like traveling back in time. Often shops are not wholly neat and tidy and there are interesting subjects hiding just behind another pile of old things. The more offbeat or cute the better.

New Work
Jewelry by Guild member Melanie Guerra
I have been designing jewelry for 20 years. What started out as a hobby and a way to create unique accessories for myself and to give to friends has blossomed over time into one of several true artistic passions. This spring, I am showcasing new work made of fine silver, incorporating gemstones and glass into designs that range from delicate to statement. I think this collection reaches across a wide spectrum of styles and tastes, and I hope there is something for everyone!
