Signs of Life 2016

October 19, 2016 - November 9, 2016

Facèré Jewelry Art Gallery presents "Signs of Life," an annual literary journal and contemporary jewelry art exhibition. The exhibit features work by nine jewelry artists. One piece by each artist is used as the jumping-off point for nine written pieces by published authors. The resulting works culminate in a unique publication celebrating the literary and jewelry arts. This is the twelfth year of publication for "Signs of Life."


Signs of Life runs October 19 - November 9, 2016. Lectures and readings will take place from 4-5 p.m. on Wednesday, October 19, 2016. A champagne reception will follow from 5 - 6:30 p.m.. Please contact facereart@gmail.com for more information
