In-Town Gallery Presents “Go Red for Women” Through Feb. 28; Opening Reception Feb. 3

  • Monday, January 23, 2023

This month kicks off the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” Campaign. In support of this cause, In-Town Gallery presents the work of three jewelers, Eleanor Goodson, Barbara Murnan and Carol Ott in a show also entitled, “Go Red for Women.”

The opening reception on Friday, Feb. 3 from 5-8 p.m. will feature the music of guitarist Adam Stone. “Go Red for Women'' runs through Feb. 28.

In support of the American Heart Association, In-Town Gallery will donate 10 percent of the show’s sales to the AHA and will collect donations throughout the month of February.

The American Heart Association’s signature women’s initiative, “Go Red for Women” is designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally.

Officials said, "The distinctive jewelry of Eleanor Goodson, Barbara Murnan and Carol Ott is the perfect way to say ‘I love you’ on Valentine’s Day.

"Ms. Goodson creates 22K gold, pure silver or electrum chains following the ancient Etruscan style, and her necklace designs are created by combining semi-precious stones, pearls, gold or silver beads in combinations that are both distinctive and original.

"Ms. Murnan is a passionate metalsmith working with sterling silver, copper, agates and minerals, to which she adds the element of fire, producing hand forged free-form designs of simplicity and strength."

Ms. Ott, a jewelry artist for over 20 years, finds all beading techniques enjoyable, but "free style" is her favorite.

“I don’t enjoy making the same thing twice so abstract beading is very appealing. It gets my creative juices flowing as I sort through the infinite variety of beads, their colors, finishes, shapes and sizes," Ms. Ott said.

In-Town Gallery is a cooperative gallery located on Chattanooga’s North Shore at 26A Frazier Ave. Hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. (closed Tuesdays) and 1-5 p.m. on Sundays.

"Our artists offer a diverse range of original art and fine craft including paintings in various media, sculpture, flame-worked glass, pottery, works in wood and metal, jewelry and fine art photography. Visit us at www.intowngallery.com or follow us on Facebook and Instagram."
