For more than 30 years, Signature Gallery has been a fixture in City Market.
It represents the finest in one-of-a-kind jewelry and art by local artisans. Today, thirteen partners strive to continue this timely tradition by sharing in all aspects of running a successful art gallery!
Once again, Signature Gallery does not disappoint.
The exquisite jewelry designs by SCAD alumni Kathryn Riechert and Scott Whitten are sure to please the most discriminating of tastes for their uniqueness and attention to detail. Kathryn’s pieces in enamel, sterling silver, and colorful gemstones identify with the whimsy in all of us. When it seems like she cannot come up with anything more enticing, she surprises us with new works of sophisticated elegance. One of her latest pieces, “Spread Joy,” was made to evoke happiness. These unusual earrings utilize Mojave Turquoise (a composite stone made from Arizona Kingman turquoise and spiny oyster shell) followed by the lower portion being Australian boulder opal doublets, which sparkle with pink and green tones. Always veering on the positive, Kathryn stamps most of her silver pieces on the reverse with insightful words of wisdom geared to inspire even the most cynical.
While it’s amazing to have just one exceptional silver and enamel artisan in a gallery, Signature does the impossible.
It has Scott Whitten permanently in residence as well. His jewelry art pieces, suitable for both feminine and masculine temperaments. They an exuberance in color with remarkable dynamic appeal. The Gallery shows his newly-designed rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces in 925 sterling silver and enamel. His etched bands are beautiful in their simple designs, which are suitable for any occasion. He incorporates various shapes and textures with phenomenal color combinations,. Scott’s jewelry works of art have clients continually asking for more.
Together with the introduction of Kathryn’s and Scott’s, Signature shows their partners Elizabeth Slocum and Olivia Beaumont.
Their exceptional jewelry designs boast a selection of 2D original mediums that are also new to the Signature scene. Working with heavy acrylic paint, Elizabeth mixes color pigments. She creates vibrant paintings with a 3D appeal that just beg to be touched. It’s hard to tear yourself away from these highly tactile pieces that work well with any décor.
Olivia’s adorable animals staged in oil paint and dressed in period costumes have always been a Gallery favorite, but now this fine art artist takes things in another direction by introducing the same subject matter designed in the medium of gouache. Taking on an entirely different and softer tone, these new pieces are sure to leave many a Gallery visitor unsure as to which is their favorite.
