Make sure to see Reclaimed Remnants, a show of fine-crafted contemporary jewelry by Kristi Rae Wilson, a current resident artist at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, and Nick Mullins. Hosted by Buffalo Exchange, a clothing store that sells new and used fashions, the show includes the artists individual and collaborative works, some of which incorporate clothing donated by the store. In addition to being on display in the store front, the jewelry will be worn by employees during regular business hours on Friday, March 18, from 10 AM to 9 PM.
Wilsons most recent body of work, Intentions of an Anonymous Quilter, transforms an anonymous crafter's bag of remnant fabrics into one-of-a-kind jewelry. When Wilson found a plastic Ziploc bag with unfinished written instructions for two projects and fabric remnants from 1996, she knew she had made a unique discovery. The experience prompted her to create an entire new body of work, in which she combined the fabric remnants with scrap sterling and fine silver from 2001-2011 to arrange and fabricate decorative and functional jewelry components.
Mullins work investigates the juxtaposition of materials and the process of natural and man-made materialshow they age and how their visual complexity creates a sense of nostalgia. Materials can develop cracks, change colors, twist, bend and absorb pigments. This unpredictability is what keeps materials interesting to the artist and is why he finds the process of aging so intriguing.
