    Repoussé Style, Then and Now: A Celebration of the Art of Michael Izrael Galmer
    December 11, 2014July 19, 2015
    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour or $3 for exhibition only.

    The ancient metalworking technique of repoussé, the art of raising ornament in relief from the reverse side, has a rich history. In America, repoussé-style silver became associated early on with Baltimore, largely through the influence of the China Trade and its introduction of complementary carved and ornamented wares. From the mid-19th century through the post-World War II era, repoussé became a kind of esthetic moniker for the "Monument City." This often ornate style fell out of fashion in the last quarter of the 20th century, but has since seen a resurgence of interest nationwide, in part through the modern interpretations and applications of contemporary Russian-émigré silversmith Michael Izrael Galmer. This exhibition brings together thirty important pieces of Galmer’s silverwork and jewelry, displayed alongside historical examples of repoussé flatware and hollowware from the Evergreen Museum & Library collection.

    Bringing together the talents of eleven students in the Krieger School's Center for Visual Arts, this exhibition presents a photographic vision of Homewood Museum beyond color, exploring the power, subtleties, and shadows of the over 200-year-old Federal era house. Through individual choice of technique, subject, equipment, and personal point of view, each of the artists brings something unique to their photographic work and to this show.
