Jewelry Trunk Show with Catherine Davies Paetz

Uncommon Art is delighted to host a trunk show for jewelry artist Catherine Davies Paetz!

Join us on Friday, October 6, from 5-8pm for an evening of exquisite jewelry, art, and refreshments.

Catherine loves to create wearable art that brings people joy. Her original silver jewelry designs explore playful line work and/or unique surface texture and are often accented with enamel, gold, stones, or pearls.

This same evening is the Annual “In the Pink” art show to benefit The Gathering Place in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Hudson Fine Art and The Red Twig will be raffling off small paintings to benefit The Gathering Place. Uncommon art will also have an interactive project honoring cancer patients and survivors.

Delivering Stories, July 14-August 19, at the BOX Gallery

“Delivering Stories” is a two-person exhibit of artwork by me and Amber McElreath.

The show runs July 14 – August 19 at the BOX Gallery in Akron.

Come join us for the opening reception on Friday, July 14, 5-8pm.

For this exhibit, I have made lots of new artwork that is more textured and dimensional than I've done in the past. The pieces have been exciting and challenging to make..

The piece pictured here is one of the new ones, titled “From a Fond Heart Faithful and True”.

Amber makes assemblages from found objects. She and I have different styles, but they play off each other very well. This show should be really interesting.

The BOX Gallery is open Friday and Saturdays from noon-5pm. It is also open till 9 during the Akron Artwalk on August 5th.

The BOX Gallery
140 E. Market St. Akron, Ohio
3rd Floor of Summit Artspace
Fri – Sat, 12-5pm

Once Upon A Time

This collage titled “Once Upon A Time” is another of the pieces I made for our “Threads of the Past” show at Uncommon Art.

The photo is of my parents drinking a toast on their wedding day. Behind them is sheet music for “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”, which has the lyrics:

There are loved ones in the glory
Whose dear forms you often miss.
When you close your earthly story,
Will you join them in their bliss?

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by, by and by?
Is a better home awaiting
In the sky, in the sky?
