It’s with such great pleasure that I join Malvern’s new JAM Gallery this evening, putting GlamTribale in a new location on Philadelphia’s Main Line.
JAM Gallery is a new contemporary fine art gallery run by artists Melanie Fisher and Lynette Shelley at a location between building’s in Malvern’s mammoth Eastside Flats residential community. I have learned the hard way in life the retail lesson “location, location, location”. As a businesswoman and artist, I’m so impressed that Melanie and Lynette had the business savvy to jump on this opportunity to introduce an art gallery into this new perfectly-located, retail scene.
JAM Gallery prides itself as being a “decidedly 21st-century addition to the quaint Victorian borough”, writes Caroline O’Halloran. There are no Chester County barns or covered bridges decorating the walls of JAM. Instead, mythology and imagination are at play throughout the gallery.
Within this context, GlamTribale fits right in to the mood of JAM Gallery. My representative at JAM Laura Casaccio believes we are a perfect match, and I must agree. Laura has pulled together a wonderful collection of GlamTribale jewelry only, with a heavy emphasis on pieces that complement Melanie and Lynette’s own artistic vision.
I developed these African Dancers Hope & Peace earrings, $45, for the Philadelphia Ballet’s early December Nutcracker Market at Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, where I am a founding member. Shortly, you’ll see many new items with ballet themes developed for the event. With these earrings, I wanted to convey how the essence of GlamTribale can be interpreted for a dance-loving audience.
Tonight, these earrings and many other Omo Valley-inspired jewelry pieces are headed for JAM, located at 321 East King Street, Malvern PA 19355. Gallery hours are Wednesday-Sunday, posted here. For yet another piece of glorious new that I received yesterday, check out my front page news. ~ Anne
