Ready to wear and bespoke silver and gold jewelry, Walker Jewelry is made by hand by Lindsay Walker, designer and Metalsmith from Charleston SC. Making jewelry by using traditional silversmith techniques, Walker creates pieces that are meant to be worn through every season, and is focused on sustainable material sourcing and production. The designs are inspired by buildings, bridges, subcultures, and beauty, found in the Southern United States.

Walker stumbled into the world of metal art while working at the Urban Electric Company in Charleston SC. That stumble turned into a successful time as a senior craftsman, making lighting and training others in the old techniques of copper smithing. Having studied art for many years, including a year in Milan Italy, Walker desired to gain more solid footing as a designer and thought a good start would be Scandinavia. For 6 years Walker focused on jewelry art, craft, and sustainable design. Learning and working with her idols of the design world, including a design project with Georg Jensen. After graduating school with a degree in fine metals design, a longing to be closer to her family, moved Walker to leave Copenhagen and settle in Nashville Tennessee, a vibrant music city. Luckily Walker found a creative and bustling city in her new home of Nashville and started Walker Jewelry with hopes of bringing together her diverse background in order to make quality and accessible jewelry with a unique story.

Walkers designs are inspired largely by architecture found in the city, life stories, and in regards to her best selling Monroe Bolo Tie, the inspiration came from David Lynch’s movie Blue Velvet. Walker adds on reinterpreting the country bolo tie, “Sometimes I work to create jewelry for characters in movies that I can’t get out of my head, and I wanted very much to create a modern Bolo Tie that my musician friends and fashionist friends alike could wear out on the town, feel cool, feel a little bit country, and also modern.”

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
