Chan Gallery Exhibition Schedule

Through January 31, 2020 – Kathy Chan’s Celestial Dreams: The Art of Space Jewelry 

Please join us for a reception on Tuesday, November 12 from 5-7 pm to honor Kathy Chan and celebrate this spectacular exhibition. Refreshments will be served and this event is FREE and open to the public.

With the exhibition Celestial Dreams, world traveler Kathy Chan imagines what a space traveler in our solar system may encounter, giving prominence to the fragile oasis Earth. Using precious gems, minerals and metals, Chan crafts what her heart perceives, and imbues pendants, rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings with symbolism and meaning. Gazing both heavenward and inward, she creates a body of work that invites introspection and affirmation.
