Velvet da Vinci in San Francisco, California, is a wonderful place to see international exhibitions. Taking on the role of a museum, as a few art galleries (and even fewer jewelry galleries) do these days, Velvet da Vinci is a leader in featuring this kind of themed exhibit.
The international team of Jo Bloxham from England and Ben Lignel from France (our new editor) curated this exhibition, and Velvet da Vinci is its only US venue. Gallery owners Mike Holmes and Elizabeth Shypertt have a large and active international network from which to draw this type of show. Lucky for those of us who live near them! A beautifully designed catalog is available from the gallery.
