Join the Baltimore Jewelry Center, July 8, 2021, 7 p.m. EST, for a free artist talk with Jessica Andersen. Andersen’s exhibition i found you is on view in the BJC gallery through July 10, 2021. In it she asks, “What can be seen in the objects we keep? What can be said of the objects we discard?” Andersen sourced materials from estate sales, auctions, garage sales, and junk drawers. Her interests address “Thing Theory,” a study of the world of material things: their functions, semiotics, and symbolic and commercial value in regards to their current cultural understanding. She’s concerned with the effect of objects and defined notions of waste in relation to ideas of collection. Her work showcases the form and appeal of everyday detritus in the construction and presentation of jewelry. More info. Register here.
