Girls Play Games

Facere Jewelry Art Gallery
Seattle, WA
October 1-25, 2008

In a diverse range of signature media—metals, wood, rubber, fibers and mixed media—an enchanting panoply of unexpected, wearable forms await us.

Each invited artist has created a unique body of work which reflects the personal development of forms to express the intended content. The works evoke personal connections for the game makers as well as to all of us who have memories of games and times played out imaginatively. These new pieces resonate with memory, imagination, celebration and invention!
