This exhibition features more than 300 works by one of the most acclaimed jewelry designers of the last 35 years, Joel A. Rosenthal, who works in Paris under the name JAR. The exhibition will be the first retrospective of his work in America. Rosenthal was born in New York, educated at Harvard University, and moved to Paris immediately after his graduation in 1966. It was there that he began to experiment with jewelry making and quickly became well-known for his designs of vibrant colors and organic shapes. Very early, Rosenthal revealed his special sensitivity to color, whether in the hue of an exotic violet sapphire, the shimmer of topaz and ruby, or the simple clarity of a perfect diamond. He has focused on the pave technique and most often uses a dark metal alloy for the settings to highlight the gem color.

Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
