May Gallery Guide

Design, form, and color: three very important concepts at MM Jewelry. We are looking forward to the following shows in May and hope that they will inspire and evolve the design, form, and color of our own pieces.  Please enjoy our first Gallery Guide! See you at one of the shows?

Design
Unique by Design: Contemporary Jewelry from the 
Donna Schneier Collection will be on view at the Met starting May 13th. Within her collection, Schneier has documented the postwar economic boom of the 1960s, when jewelers began to explore new materials on an international scale. Her collection features artists such as Caroline Broadhead and Otto Kunzli. We're in love with Choker #70, Mary Lee Hu 1985.

Form
Beginning May 10th, Pace Gallery will show Tara Donavan's latest body of work. Donavan constructs large-scale sculptures made from everyday objects. She invites the viewer to think about the materials that we encounter regularly and their potential within the sculptural context. The textures that Donavan creates are visually stunning.

Color
Gauguin: Metamorphoses  (at MoMA, through June 8th) takes an in-depth look at Paul Gauguin's overall body of work and explores his lesser known techniques such as print making and transfer drawing. We love Gauguin's nuanced colors and can't wait to see the breadth of his work alongside the more celebrated paintings.
