July 26th, 2021 Guest Speaker Sharon Moores
The Prince William Art Society will meet July 26th at 7:30 PM at the Tall Oaks Community Center, 12298 Cotton Mill Drive, Lake Ridge, VA. Our guest speaker will be Sharon Moores.
Sharon Moores's formal training is in journalism, but she's been making jewelry since she was a kid. After taking metalsmithing classes, she created slathered, her jewelry line. Her pieces are formed by the stones or antiques she uses -- their shapes and colors guide her design.
She loves jewelry because it's an art form that needs to be touched and worn to be fully realized. She's especially fascinated by how jewelry can represent relationships or life events, and how that applied meaning transforms jewelry into profound symbols worn for life. Sharon thinks of her own large pieces as shields and talismans -- modern-day armor and statement pieces.
When she's not blasting silver with fire and hammers, Sharon is the artist liaison at Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA.
