Jewel-Tone Pieces to Define Salon Art + Design 2018
Every year, the Salon Art + Design presents historical, modern, and contemporary furniture, art, and design objects from over 50 international galleries. The 2018 edition, held in New York’s famed Park Avenue Armory from November 8-12 and produced by Sanford Smith + Associates, unites a diverse roster of dealers specializing in classic and abstract antiquities to the latest work of emerging masters. This year’s offerings are decidedly jewel-toned, notices Jill Bokor, Salon Art + Design’s executive director. It’s no surprise given that several exhibiting makers such as Erin Sullivan, shown at Todd Merrill Studio, cut their teeth designing jewelry. “From working small, she has moved onto design objects reminiscent of jewel-like sculptures,” Bokor notes. “Similarly, the disks of mirror encrusted in thick gold leaf by Nancy Lorenz, at Liz O’Brien’s booth, would make for lust-worthy earrings at a smaller scale.” She further notes that each of these designers have used color, shapes, materials, and intricacy that is the hallmark of fine jewelry.
