“Bijoux Contemporains: Francophone Artists Reimagine Adornment,” featuring works by 13 jewelers from French-speaking countries in Canada and Europe, opens on Thursday at the Richard M. Ross Art Museum, 60 S. Sandusky St. in Delaware. The exhibition runs through February 9, 2020.
Each creator reimagines the ways art and jewelry inform one another in a contemporary context.
The exhibit is organized by Noel Guyomarc’h in collaboration with Erin Fletcher, director of the Ross Art Museum; Mary Anne Lewis Cusato, associate professor of modern foreign languages; and Cynthia Cetlin, professor of fine arts. Jewelers featured are Marianne Anselin, Marie Eve Castonguay, Ambroise Degenève, Gabrielle Desmarais, Catherine Granche, Aurelie Guillaume, Sophie Hanagarth, Patricia LeMaire, Nelly Van Oost, Claude Schmitz, Catherine Sheedy, Magali Thibault-Gobeil, and Anne-Sophie Vallée.
On November 21, the museum will host a curator lecture at noon, an exhibition tour with the OWU faculty collaborators at 5 PM, and a reception at 5:30 PM. During the academic year, the Ross Art Museum is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM; Thursday from 10 AM to 9 PM; and Sunday from 1 PM to 5 PM.
