Striking Gold: Fuller at Fifty
Fuller Craft Museum
455 Oak Street
Brockton, MA 02301
T: (508) 588-6000 ext. 115
(J. Lohmann Gallery, www.jlohmanngallery.com)
In honor of its esteemed fifty-year history, Fuller Craft presents the exhibition Striking Gold. This invitational exhibition marks the institution’s “golden anniversary” as it probes the storied history of gold as an artistic material as well as its cultural, historical, and political associations. The inclusion of gold in the selected works reveals clear intention and purpose, rather than being used for purely decorative effect. In each case gold serves as the subject, as well as a material property of the work.
The exhibition is co-curated by Suzanne Ramljak, an art historian, writer, curator, and former editor of Metalsmith magazine, and Beth McLaughlin, Fuller Craft’s Chief Curator of Exhibitions and Collections.

TEFAF Maastricht (Pierre Marie Giraud, Brussel) Booth 621

Pierre Marie Giraud specializes in unique pieces by international artists working in ceramics, glass and decorative arts. Founded in Brussels in 2005, the gallery represents an exceptional group of established artists from Europe, North America, Japan and Africa, and regularly showcases their work in both solo and thematic exhibitions. The minimalist and light-filled interiors of the gallery, which is housed in an elegant nineteenth-century townhouse, reflect Giraud’s considered approach towards the presentation and appreciation of contemporary applied art. At the same time, the spaces are domestic in scale, which reinforces the link between art and everyday life. The gallery is known for exhibiting only the very best and most original makers, and work that embodies conceptual, technical and aesthetic innovation. Pierre Marie Giraud is internationally recognized for his unparalleled expertise in ceramics. He regularly advises European and American museums on collection acquisitions and curatorial issues, and collaborates with a number of institutions on the promotion of contemporary ceramics. The gallery participates in fairs such as Design Basel and Design Miami, and is also noted for producing monographic publications on the artists featured in the exhibition programme.

Artist in the Spotlight – Barbara Nanning
J. Lohmann Gallery, New York
J. Lohmann Gallery is pleased to present a new collection of glass designs by the artist Barbara Nanning.
Nanning’s mesmerizing sculptures unite tradition with innovation and are a fusion of carefully chosen unconventionally combined elements.
Barbara unites classical artistic methods with an innovative use of materials to achieve an entirely unique language of form, one which often evolves in the making process. As Barbara notes “after each of my trips abroad I return to my studio with a profusion of new ideas about colour, design and texture that has profoundly influenced my work.” Nanning sets down her inspiration in dozens of sketches, drawings and photos that function as a memory aid.
Nanning continues: “I see myself as a material bound artist, inventing and developing unusual methods and techniques with new surface textures. I heavily rely on the malleability of the material and explore experimentally the boundaries of what is possible. With my work I try to capture the essence of motion and growth”. Nature, both organic and inorganic, is a constant source of inspiration for Nanning. She examines crystals, jellyfish, flowers and micro organisms with an almost nineteenth century fascination for form, structure and geometry. The designer combines regularity with fluidity, order with chaos and the rigid with the informal.
Barbara Nanning was born in The Netherlands and lives and works in Amsterdam. She graduated from the prestigious Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and is the recipient of several international awards. Nanning’s work is represented in the permanent collections of the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, among many other important museums.
