Sculptured ceramic jewelry exhibit by Marblehead artist, Miriam

If you plan to be in Massachusetts this month, the Virginia A. Carten Gallery of the Abbot Public Library's, in Marblehead, is currently running a new exhibit called "Sculptured Jewelry: A Celebration of Femininity." The exhibit features pendants and brooches by Maria Gofshteyn, a Marblehead artist also known as Miriam.

The collection will be on display from Sept. 1 to Sept. 28, 2009 and will also feature a fashion show which will showcase the jewels on Sept. 13 at 3 p.m. in the library meeting room. Miriam's daughter Ming will be one of the fashion models.

The designer was born in Russia and has a background in the visual arts. Her jewelry is made from white clay, which is sometimes colored before being fired and glazed. The designs are colorful, free-form, and immediately attracting to visitors.

For more information on the artist, you can view an article about Maria "Miriam" Gofshteyn on the Jewish Journal website. I wish I could be in Marblehead this month. I'd love to see more of her work.
