This Thursday's Art Walk captures two artists in the midst of their evolutions: jeweler Frances Smersh is painting, and blacksmith Erica Gordon is making jewelry.
You know Erica Gordon from her belt buckles: forged, welded, and fabricated in her Georgetown studio. She's taken her same bold aesthetic and scaled it down to jewelry: wearable, sexy, and strong.
Our own Frances Smersh continues to explore shapes and forms, not in metal but acrylic and mixed media. Think of it as jewelry for your walls.
