I am extremely excited to announce that I have helped curate and organize the first European exhibition and sale dedicated to the work of Gordon & Jane Martz, to take place in Paris this fall.
In anticipation of this event (and before everything gets loaded in a shipping container) I cordially invite you to a preview reception at my new gallery space near downtown Indianapolis. On view will be highlights from the forthcoming exhibition in Paris, as well as a number of rare and unique pieces on view for the first time.
Gordon & Jane Martz joined Marshall Studios in Veedersburg, IN in 1951. Over the course of nearly four decades they transformed the company from one that focused almost exclusively on lampshades to one that would epitomize what we now know as Mid Century Modern. Primarily ceramicists, Gordon & Jane became best known for their now iconic lamps. Lesser known are the furniture, textiles and housewares which were all produced during their time in Veedersburg. Examples of all of the above will be included in this exhibition.
Please follow this link to see examples of the work on view. Additional listings will be added throughout the week.
I look forward to seeing you on Friday, May 18th, or during additional gallery hours on Saturday May 19th.
