American Creator Series Dean Harris Jeweler

AMERICAN CREATOR SERIES: DEAN HARRIS, JEWELER

Thursday, August 9, 2007 (All day) to Sunday, January 27, 2008 (All day)

A love of the natural world and a reverence for the materials he uses has led Dean Harris to create sculptural jewelry that has struck a cord with his clientele since the inception of his company in 1998. His graceful approach produces organic shapes, fluid lines and geometric compositions that are at times Spartan in a field defined by extravagance. Fascinated by the deeply psychological need we have for adornment, and attentive to fashion's growing informality, he believes that "anything can be jewelry."

HAIR: THE RISE OF INDIVIDUALITY, 1790-1840

Saturday, October 14, 2006 (All day) to Sunday, January 7, 2007 (All day)

Decorative Arts Center of Ohio, in Lancaster, Ohio | Dr. Anne Bissonnette, Curator Split between nature, culture and sculpture, hair is a multifaceted topic and a medium of expression that is often overlooked. It can speak loudly and it did when, at the end of the 18th century, democratic ideals caused major social and political schisms that literally changed the face of fashion. By the 1790s, wigs and towering hairdos were going out of favor and new styles rooted in classicism ushered in an era of increased individuality.
