Contemporary Silversmith Michael Izrael Galmer
April 6 – May 20, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, April 6th from 5-7 p.m.
Based in New York City, contemporary silversmith Michael Galmer has succeeded in becoming one of the country’s leading craftsmen, having created silverworks for Tiffany and Co., Lenox, Gorham and Kirk Stieff. With a unique casting technique, the artist has developed a wide variety of highly decorative jewelry and vessels as well as the renowned Preakness trophy. The artist is following an impulse to create much larger works for commemorative and contemporary sculptures. These works are now collected by such distinguished institutions as the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Museum, the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. The exhibition will be open to the public from April 6 through May 20, 2018.
