With one week to go until opening night, we realized we have a TON of artists to tell you about. Therefore, we’ll be spotlighting two artists per day EVERY DAY until we open next Thursday, March 31st, for the Opening Preview Cocktail Reception! Today we look at Abra Couture and Leni Hoch:
Abra Couture creates handmade works of art, infused with urban sophistication and reflecting the electricity of a breathing city. The delicate metalwork, done by hand, inspire a feeling of poise and femininity. Originally from New York City, Abra Couture began in a Greenwich Village apartment, growing into a line that is sought after by jewelry lovers and museums across the country. Women can relate to the gentle beauty of the polished stones, with simple designs that accentuates the unique shape of the wearer. Bringing to light the inner beauty of the body that it adorns, Abra couture uses a variety of color and depth in their pieces; through stones and different metals they create a unique viewing experience for those admiring the pieces.
Leni Hoch’s hand dyed silk makes the wearer feel like they are wrapped in a dream. The vibrant, stunning colors of floating clouds, bursting rose petals and meadows of yellow daisies are brought out of the surreal and into the present in Leni’s work. Her line of fiber and dyed silk wearable’s make every woman feel as though she has been bestowed the beauty of Aphrodite. Her works take the shape of vests, scarves, silk jackets- all hand dyed often accentuated with copper fasteners. Working with a broad palate of color and texture her pieces are undeniable feminine with a glamorous aura surrounding them. With shades that compliment every season, her one of a kind pieces are truly show stoppers.
