Description: “Gilt By Association”

“For all art should be ornamental, and when it is not ornamental, and in the degree in which it is not, it fails of a part of its purpose” ~ William Morris


Parlor Gallery is celebrating artists who employ ornamentation, embellishment and adornment in their elaborate and thoughtful work. Featured Artists include returning Chicago~based Artist, Ellen Greene who paints on vintage women's leather gloves and collars, further decorating an already existing form and “complete” object.
"My recent work has focused on vintage women's gloves painted with reworked traditional western tattoo motifs and the visual tension between these two symbols. The gloves are symbols of a historical set of “ladylike” behavior that included modesty, purity and submissive attitudes.” ~Ellen Greene

Making their debut, are New York based artists, Van Wifvat and Kelly Bugden, of Van Gregory & Norton, a Brooklyn-based design studio creating elaborate mirrors and other decorative pieces using old world techniques, such as watergilding,
which they’ve mastered for the last 25 years. More recently, they’ve been using these techniques in their Fine Art and the collaboration of these artists grew out of years of shaping materials into one-of-a-kind objects. Intuitively, the process of creating with their hands took an inward turn.The works emerged as the visual senses channeled the ritualistic power of selected artifacts.Embellishing the “common” objects with crystal and gilded embellishments, make the objects “vibrate outside the realm of time” ~ V.W & K.B.

Also exhibiting in “Gilt By Association” are artists Ellen Stagg,Liz Tran, Brett Marcel, Beau Stanton, Michela Martello, Chris Guest, Elizabeth Waggett, Jennifer Gennari, Rose Freymuth-Frazier, Darla Teagarden and Victoria Selbach.
