Art Smith, “Half & Half” Necklace, 1948, brass, 7 x 8 x 1.25 inches. Museum of Fine Arts, Boston – The Daphne Farago Collection. 2006.536.
The Asheville Art Museum is excited to present Flourish: Selected Jewelry From the Daphne Farago Collection, a dazzling exhibition on view April 18 – August 16.
Flourish showcases a selection of jewelry carefully curated over many years by the keen-eyed collector Daphne Farago and reveals the breadth of studio jewelry as the movement evolved. A self-conscious practice, studio jewelry emerged following WWII as a response to commercially available adornment and as a marriage of fine craft and art.
This exhibition is organized by the Asheville Art Museum, with special thanks to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
The Museum thanks the Farago Family Foundation for their generous sponsorship of this exhibition and Jim and Julia Peterson for their support
