There is a special gallery in NYC that is closed to my heart, a product of love created by design historian Bella Neyman, whom I have first met as a master student who also acted as my TA at Parsons the New School for Design. The Gallery at Reinstein|Ross is the only one of its kind in New York, is devoted to curated shows of contemporary jewelry, which highlight the current state of this often overlooked territory. Neyman has established extensive contacts with jewelry artists worldwide, establishing herself as one of the more passionate experts in the field. Next week, the Gallery opens its first exhibition of 2016, “Flora and Flesh: The Work of Jessica Calderwood,” presenting the work of Wisconsin-based mixed media artist. Calderwood, who creates wall reliefs, freestanding sculptures, and wearable objects, tends to explore women's roles in society. For this show, she has created a series of large-scale sculptures of human/plant hybrids which I absolutely love.
