Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Read the thoughts and impressions left by others during the run of the Calder Jewelry exhibition.

THE JEWELRY WAS DIFFERENT LOVED THE BROCHES HOWEVER THE NECKLACES WHERE TOO MUCH

The mixed media pieces were well designed. I think that I will be using some of the clasping methods in the future. :)

A breathtaking exhibit of innovative jewelry. We were familiar with Calder's sculpture but never had the pleasure of his smaller scale work.

Thought that the exhibition was pretty. A simple, but truthful statement about the visual impact of this space and Calder's designs.

I am a student of Jewelry in Monterey, CA and this is an amazing exhibit. It has been fascinating to see how Calder was able to cold connect these long ungulating pieces of wire to invent these fanciful, simple, yet elegant designs. I am particularly moved by the piece he made for his mother and for those initial pieces that are sprinkled throughout the exhibit. And, a special thanks to the staff of guards who were EXTREMELY courteous and helpful.

I think that the displays and armatures created for the work are very successful. They almost disappear, and the viewer isn't aware that they are even there! Great job!

I wrote about this amazing jewelry in the September issue of Jewelry Artist magazine, but it has to be seen to be believed. The stuff this guy could do with a hammer and a piece of wire... unbelievable!! This is one jewelry exhibit men can appreciate as much as women.

The exhibit is so awesome. The influences can be seen today. The futuristic costumes in television like Stargate SG1 demonstrate his style. It is a true complement the his art is now a source for inspiration today.
