The League of NH Craftsmen - Meredith Fine Craft Gallery is pleased to have League metal artist Deirdre Donnelly featured for the month of August with her ?Blended Metals? jewelry exhibit. This will run from August 1st ? August 31st in the gallery with her pieces on display and available for purchase. Deirdre?s jewelry is inspired by the magical homes of the goddesses and gods at the Neolithic sites of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth in Ireland, built in 3500 BC. These temples to immortality are decorated with megalithic art with astronomy and spirituality as a fundamental aspect of their symbolism. The three main structures symbolize birth, life and death and are surrounded by cairns also with deep symbolic significance. The Blended Metals collection represents the most sacred symbolism lying at the core of the spirit homes built in Ireland over 5,000 years ago.
The mission of the League of NH Craftsmen is to encourage, nurture and promote the creation, use and preservation of fine contemporary and traditional craft through the inspiration and education of artists and the broader community.
All demonstrations are free and open to the public.
