Elizabeth Garvin has shown with the Telluride Gallery of Fine Art since 2014. This will be her very first visit to town. The metal artist will be showing some of her well-known, well-loved designs, as well as items from her newest collection.
“I love working at the bench. For me, that’s where it all happens; materials, eyes, hands and a lifetime of experiences interact in spontaneous ways. A bridge, ocean currents, stone textures, plant systems, and a dance performance can come together in a single moment, in a single piece of jewelry. The rawness and the purity of what emerges not only excites and inspires me, but clearly speaks a common language with women who like me have sought a life rich with experiences,” said Elizabeth Garvin.
Elizabeth Garvin was born into a creative family of artists and designers. The metal artist graduated with honors from New York University in 1986, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree, with further studies, at the Parsons School of Design and the Massachusetts College of Art.
In her New York studio, each hand-crafted piece (of 18K gold, 950 palladium, oxidized silver and diamonds) is a study of geometric shapes, each unique piece expressing Elizabeth’s interest in natural sciences, geology and metallurgy. Studies of dance, music, painting, sculpture, film, photography, also inform her approach to metal-smithing. The result? Bold, feminine, relatable bling exhibited internationally in galleries and museum stores.
“When a woman designs jewelry for another woman, there’s a sensitivity…carefully honed to suit a woman’s body, to flow with her lifestyle, and to become part of her own personal expression,” Elizabeth said in a prior interview.
