The ancient craft of silversmithing has something new to say in an exhibition at Aaron Faber Gallery that begins tomorrow, Tuesday, June 23rd and runs through August 8th. The firm has long been the champion of both master-contemporary and up-and-coming studio artisans. The group of about one hundred pieces was worked by thirty-four silversmiths whose aesthetics mix traditional and innovative techniques with a modern sensibility. The collection possesses a strong perspective that (hint, hint) is must see for anyone in fashion looking for some directional afflatus.
