FW Front Gallery in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Una Barrett and David Earl Tomlinson
FW Front Gallery at Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, will present the exhibits: Una Barrett: Jewelry and David Earl Tomlinson: Metalwork, both on view from Oct. 1 - 30, 2010.
Una Barrett of Relics of a New Age creates jewelry that is unique and one of a kind. Una utilizes sterling silver, bronze, copper, gold, paper, wood, and other materials to create three dimensional sculptural metaphors. These wearable metaphors convey the need for exploration and connection between collective global history and technologically driven modern society.
David Earl Tomlinson
David Earl Tomlinson is a self taught metalworker from Asheville. Imagining ways to allow the naturally occurring textures and colors of rusted and decayed salvaged metal to be the focal point of a work of art inspired him to create salvaged steel (and other metals) "quilts". The influence of the Appalachian regions rich quilting history should not be overlooked, though it is a very loose inspiration in Tomlinson's works of art.
