The show opens with a reception on Thursday, October 20, from 5 to 8 pm in the gallery in The Shops at Canal Place.

The exhibiting artists were inspired by fellow artists as varied as Alexander McQueen, Leonardo da Vinci, Kandinsky, Salvador Dali and Dr. Seuss. Jeweler Natalie Nichols will show a costume inspired by fashion designer John Galliano; Paige Moran shows a handmade collage book inspired by book artist Lucas Samaras. Silk painter Kathy Schorr’s piece is a silk wall hanging inspired by Georgia O’Keefe’s magnification of nature into abstraction; jeweler Tamara Carboni will show a silver piece inspired by Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi.
