Anna Korte: Opening July 3rd

Join us this coming First Friday from 5-9 pm for a very special opening celebration for Anna.
We'll have snacks and such, stop by and chat with her about all sorts of amazing things she's into..
Anna Korte is a jewelry designer based in Portland, OR.
Working primarily with eco-friendly 100% vintage materials, her jewelry is styley-earth conscious.
For her debut show this month at Sword+Fern, 'Metaphysical Mosaic', Anna branches out and showcases her sculptural grace, attention to detail, and heart-felt understanding of beauty, spirit, and form as a large scale minimalist installation involving fiber, intention, and the harmony of space.
R. Buckminster Fuller's 1970 book of poems, Intuition, from which the title of her new work is taken, is a prominent source of inspiration to Korte.

In Anna's words:
' .. For me, creating fiber-based sculpture art fulfills a creative exploration of an inner-world...
like my way down the rabbit hole or finding the key to my secret garden.
At the moment, I am heavily inspired by the works and ideas of R. Buckminster Fuller.
This piece, in particular, is inspired less about the perfection of symmetry, and more about the omni-interrelated universe of which you and I are part.'
Also, come by the studio this weekend for your last chance to view Sarah Gottesdiener's New Work installation before it comes down on Sunday eve.
