Jessica Stephens to Display Jewelry Inspired by Landscapes in the Mezzanine Gallery in April

Jessica Stephens, Individual Artist Fellow in Crafts, will present an exhibition titled Landscapes, in the Delaware Division of the Arts Mezzanine Gallery from April 5-26, 2013. The Gallery, open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington. There will be a reception to meet the artist on Friday, April 5 from 5-8 p.m. as part of Wilmington’s Art Loop.

This solo exhibition of Jessica Stephens’ work will showcase a body of work influenced by the architecture of landscapes. Stephens attempts to capture the character of a rock formation or a mountainous silhouette.

The artist experiments with different materials such as coral, sterling silver, copper, and enamel. Relying heavily on line and basic geometric forms, Stephens’ intention is to create abstract and fragmented topographic studies.

A Delaware Individual Artists Fellow in Crafts, Jessica Stephens received her MFA at State University of New York, New Paltz, NY. Stephens has exhibited her work locally, regionally, and nationally.
