The new series will be celebrated on Saturday, April 30, 2016 from 1:00 p.m – 7:00 p.m. at the Eve J. Alfillé Gallery and Studio, and will allow guests to indulge in beverages, food, live music, and Evanston-made art jewelry.
Evanston, IL – Get your walking stick and rucksack ready, because it’s almost time to traverse some terrain with Evanston’s resident citizen of the world, Eve Alfillé. This world-conscious creator has tackled fields ranging from history to language and more with her art jewelry, and is using her latest series to explore even more of the world she loves. The series, “Latitude & Longitude,” will be celebrated at the Eve J. Alfillé Gallery & Studio on April 30 by fans of jewelry and geography alike!
No world capitols, no school quizzes! Alfillé’s exploration takes us back to the physical world, and how we learned to relate to the space we inhabit and the lands and seas beyond. Each place, both familiar and foreign, will be evoked with materials ranging from pristine diamonds to baroque pearls to unruly fossils that celebrate the world in all its textures…wavy seas, grainy sands, and more will have a place on Eve’s map.
Symbols will also be key: a compass rose, a pendulum, birds in migration, the fish of the seas, along with a circle of ebony to represent the unity of the earth and all things in it. Above all, Eve stresses the importance of solidarity in a world with as many varied passions and opinions as there are latitudes and longitudes.
The opening celebration promises to be worth the trip– tantalizing treasures await, including a raffle for a stunning necklace and pair of earrings designed by Eve just for the party (no purchase necessary!). Come test your luck at the raffle, or simply enjoy the party atmosphere with a glass of Champagne! Festivities will also include delicious catered treats by Donna Goodman and musical stylings of jazz duo, The Casual Flyers. All earthlings are invited!
The new series will be released and celebrated on April 30, 2016 from 1:00 p.m – 7:00 p.m. at the Eve J. Alfillé Gallery and Studio.
