Recent Work by Jessica Calderwood is one of four exhibitions held annually promoting work of established and emerging artists dedicated to interesting and fine craftsmanship. Located at 175 Newbury St. the Society of Arts and Crafts is nestled in the gallery district of Boston’s historic Back Bay.
For the past decade Calderwood has developed a unique body of work largely through enameling, an ancient process of fusing glass to metal. Floral Fictions, presents recent sculpture and jewelry that combine flower and botanical forms with fragments of the human body to address the narrative of human life cycles: change, growth, aging, and death. Her beautiful and exquisitely crafted objects offer humorous and sometimes ironic insights into what it means to be alive. The exhibition will also include sketches and collages that provide a glimpse into the artist’s working process.
