Crossing Cultures: Artist and Fine Jewels from the 1960s and 1970s
In collaboration with Shiprock, Santa Fe, NM
July 21st - 25th, 2016
In dialogue with the rich and rooted artistry and colored stones used by Southwestern American jewelers, MAHNAZ COLLECTION will showcase mid-twentieth century counterparts in worked and textured gold and silver, and colored gemstones. Original vintage design classics will be on view from Europe and the Americas. Jewels from Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels, Boucheron, Lalaounis, Andrew Grima, Bjorn Weckstrom, Georg Jensen, Roberto Burle Marx and Haroldo Burle Marx, and H. Fred Skaggs, among others, will be available for sale.
A first look at select jewels from MAHNAZ COLLECTION will be available starting the weekend of July 8. The exhibition opening event will be held at Shiprock Santa Fe on July 21, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., followed by a conversation with Mahnaz Ispahani Bartos – part of the Shiprock Santa Fe lecture series – on July 23rd at 1 p.m.
The full ensemble of jewels will be presented July 21-25, after which a limited selection will be available through August 24, 2016.
“Our collaboration was inevitable,” says Shiprock Santa Fe Gallery Owner Jed Foutz. “We are both collectors of rarified jewelry, and I think viewing our pieces alongside one another will promote an interesting design dialogue.”
