Sparkle Plenty: Bloom // Opening Reception

  • Quirk Gallery 207 West Broad Street Richmond, VA, 23219 United States (map)

"Sparkle Plenty," Quirk Gallery's annual holiday showcase of both burgeoning and well-known jewelers, has been a highlight of our exhibition schedule for over a decade. Contradicting the idea of snowy hibernation, this year's "Sparkle Plenty," "Bloom," is a mid-winter wake up call, running from Thursday, November 30 through Sunday, January 7. Six artists have been chosen based on the fresh and exciting floral themes pervading their own work to transform Quirk's Main Gallery into a garden of buds, blossoms, and branches.

Liz Clark, Nikki Couppee, Rachel Suzanne Smith, Lindsey Snell, Kayla Staigvil, and Aric Verrastro are the amazing multi-talented artists participating in "Bloom." From disassembled plastic flowers to dismantled porcelain figures, each artist uses often uncommon materials and methods in their distinct bodies of work. Not only is Bloom an opportunity for holiday shoppers to discover their next family heirloom, it's a chance for visitors to be exposed to innovative and fresh points of view.
