Exhibit by Mary Frisbee Johnson runs through March 10 at Craft CenterAn exhibit of metals and jewelry by Mary Frisbee Johnson, entitled ‘New Works in Tin and Silver,’ will be shown through March 10 in the North Windows Gallery of the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of Tennessee Tech University.
Johnson’s exhibition includes more than 40 of her narrative brooches and medals.
“In my narrative brooches and medals, sterling silver elements are combined with lithographed images from vintage tins and toys,” she said. “The hunt for a useable tin image is of great importance, as it must suggest a small story upon which to build.”
Johnson is a professor of drawing at the University of Northern Iowa. Her work in metals and jewelry, mixed media sculpture, installation sculpture and drawing has been exhibited extensively in more than 80 national and international exhibitions, including 20 solo exhibitions.
The Appalachian Center for Craft is located approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at Exit 273 (Smithville/McMinnville). Go south on Hwy. 56; turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center.
