Reverse Painted Jewelry at Gulfport Gallery Event

Posted By LocalShops1, Monday, March 9, 2015

Domain Home Accessories & Gallery in Gulfport is hosting a reception to feature local artist Jane Carpenter and her colorful reverse-painted jewelry. This installment of Domain’s monthly “Meet the Artists” events will take place  6 to 10 pm Saturday, March  21, at 3129 Beach Boulevard South in Gulfport. Complimentary wine, hors d’oeuvres and live jazz by Henry Ashwood will be offered.

Jane Carpenter’s bright and whimsical jewelry is inspired by her own “menagerie” of animals, as well as the garden and sea.  Each of her pieces includes meticulously-rendered reverse paintings on clear Lucite, created using tiny brushes, applicators and even toothpicks.  The reverse painting technique dates from the 4th century.  Carpenter’s jewelry, including earrings, pins, pendants and necklaces, is mounted on embossed and embellished sterling silver.  Her other art works include paintings on Masonite and Plexiglas, as well as pen and ink on paper.  Carpenter earned her BA and MFA in art, with an emphasis on jewelry.  She has spent many years plying the art show circuit throughout the country.  After discovering Gulfport in the early 1990s and finding it “quaint, welcoming and full of artists,” she began living there as a “snowbird,” then moved fulltime in 1994.  Her jewelry is a recent addition to the offerings at Domain.  

Established in March 2001, Domain Home Accessories offers a variety of unique art, decor, lighting, jewelry, cards, home goods and more.  “& Gallery” opened in 2012 in the adjacent space and showcases the work of more than 40 local and regional artists. For more information, contact Daniel Hodge, (727) 366-4086 or dan@igc.org; or visit domainhomeaccessories.com.
