Carnegie Museum of Natural History presents
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania…Experience the beauty of nature through more than 60 original pieces by award-winning jewelry artist Paula Crevoshay in a new exhibition, Garden of Light: Works by Paula Crevoshay. Featuring stunning jewelry depicting botanicals, insects, and more, the single-artist exhibition appeals to nature lovers as well as fans of lapidary art. Many of the pieces are shown juxtaposed with spectacular minerals and insects from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History collection as examples of the nature-created materials by which Crevoshay is so inspired. From a magnificent orchid pendant to a tiny spider pin, these one-of-a-kind pieces in Garden of Light celebrate the beauty and interdependencies of the animal, plant, and mineral kingdoms. Garden of Light is on view at Carnegie Museum of Natural History April 13–August 11, 2013, in Wertz Gallery: Gems & Jewelry, part of Hillman Hall of Minerals and Gems. Garden of Light is supported locally by Merrill Lynch Wealth Management.
