On view from July 14 - Sept. 4, Ladies of the Canyon will be a celebration of the feminine spirit and the spark that fueled the creative fire of master jeweler Marion Stegner (March 11, 1936 - January 13, 2018).
Marion dreamed Greensboro’s Miller’s Thumb Gallery into being and lived a life of inspired adventure and unending kindness. A radiant being and life-long advocate for the arts, Marion traveled to over 30 countries within her lifetime and saw design, color, wonder and beauty in everything. She spent 3 years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Caracas, Venezuela and Quito, Ecuador where she started an artisans cooperative for the Warao Indians which continues to operate to this day. Marion had an insatiable appetite for the arts, cultural diversity and all things beautiful. Her creative instincts and curiosity led her to be proficient in ceramics, weaving, jewelry, photography and wooden spoon carving. Her passion was designing jewelry and for 35 years she created and designed stunning one-of-a-kind pieces which adorn people the world over. Her life, work and spirit will be celebrated with this exhibition.
The Miller’s Thumb Gallery gallery will celebrate this show with an opening party on Saturday, July 14th from 4-6pm. As always, there will be local & organic hors d'oeuvres and exhibiting artists to meet.
