FACÈRÉ JEWELRY ART GALLERY presents "Louder than Words" from February 5 through March 5, 2014. The exhibit explores contrasts and communions between the visual language of jewelry art with the literary language of the printed page. Pieces, like David LaPlantz's "EVOL/Reflection/LOVE, Action that Reflects – Love is a Call to Action" brooch, include words within the piece to communicate a message. In LaPlantz's case, the word love is reflected, like across a mirror, and punctuated by a heart in the middle of the O as symbolism combined with ornamentation. The work in this exhibition takes words, either as literal inclusion, or as symbolic representation, to express that what is seen can be more powerful than what is read. Also shown on left and right are "ORA, LEGE, LEGE, LEGE, RELEGE, LABORA ET INVENIES" by Carolyn Tillie and "6/4" by Cynthia Toops. 1420 Fifth Avenue, Suite 108, Seattle, Washington 98101; 206.624.6768; www.facerejewelryart.com. 31 ORNAMENT 37.1.2013 FACÈRÉ JEWELRY ART GALLERY
