Jill Baker Gower creates jewelry and sculpture informed by her female experience and our consumer culture’s portrayal of women’s needs and desires. While primarily a metalsmith, Jill incorporates materials such as skin-toned rubber and mirrors to reference the human body, self-examination, and vanity. Other materials such as pearls, gems, feathers, enamel, hair, silver, and gold are chosen for their aesthetic qualities, emotional resonance, preciousness, and value associations. Jill received her MFA in Metals from Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona and her BS in Art Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Madison, Wisconsin. image: Jill Baker Gower, "Golden Reflection Brooch," 2017.

Join us Sunday, July 14 at 3pm for the opening reception of our Tributaries exhibition and a gallery talk by featured artist Monica Coyne! Monica Coyne is an artist-blacksmith currently based in rural California. Her experiences living in both urban and rural environments have created questions that Monica addresses with her work. "What if we acknowledged that humans were interdependent with the rest of the universe? Would we behave better?" Her figurative sculptures are inspired by man’s place in the natural environment; they draw connections between the state of human progress and the value of the world around us. Monica Coyne's gallery talk will begin at 3:30pm. This exhibition will be on display from July 7 to September 29, 2019. image: Monica Coyne, "Woman Emerging," 2018. Wrought iron.
