February 5 – March 9, 2014
Velvet Da Vinci is proud to present Gene Pijanowski: 30 Years of Jewelry and Objects. The historic exhibition will feature over 40 important works by the world renowned artist from the late 1970‘s through the mid 2000’s, marking the largest gallery exhibition of Pijanowski’s work in over two decades.
The show will run from February 5th through March 9th, 2014. An Opening Reception will take place on Friday February 7th, from 6 to 8 pm.
Eugene (Gene) Pijanowski’s work can be seen as a marriage of eastern and western tradition and style, representing an integration of modernist aesthetics and ancient sensibilities. Drawing from traditional Japanese concepts, techniques, and materials, the artist investigates the relationships between process and craft, content and form, and meaning and function. Works by Pijanowski can be found in private and museum collections worldwide; highlights include the Metropolitan Musuem of Art, NYC, the Museum of Arts and Design, NYC, the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery, Washington D.C., the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, Japan, and many more.
