Lori Garcy is the featured artist for January at Gallery Calapooia. The show runs from January 4th to 29th, with a small reception on January 7th.
Lori has been interested in body adornments most of her life. She especially likes bracelets and how they reflect the times in which they were made. The history of bracelets that men and women wore goes back 10,000 plus years. In fact, there was a recent discovery of a stone bracelet in Russia that the scientist believe may be over 40,000 years old. In the beginning, bracelets were worn for protection with men wearing them to war. Later they were used to show the wealth of the wearer.
Lori has studied the past and present designs of bracelets at museums all over the world and learned that over time they have gone from being made of vines and twisted sticks to metal adorned with precious stones. Today, both men and women wear bracelets not only as adornments, but to support a cause, show that they belong to a special group or for health reasons.
Her show this month focuses on bracelets made of many different materials including copper, sterling silver, vermeil, brass, bronze, gold filled, pearls, glass beads, and semiprecious stone beads. You will find bracelets in the forms of cuffs, bangles, beaded, chain, charm, and linked.
