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. 

Opening reception and artist talk, April 14, 3 - 5 p.m.
