Coming Soon: LeAnne Marquis
LeAnne Marquis has her BFA in Sculpture & Painting from the University of Hartford Art School in Hartford, Connecticut and has spent the past 12 years developing her ten-step ‘fire painting’ process.
Marquis has a love of color and shape and is always in anticipation of surprise when firing each piece, as different colors emerge each time and no two pieces are identical. She does not use any patinas, but searches each fire painted sheet of copper for shapes and designs before cutting out shapes for her jewelry. Often, you will find semi-precious gemstones in her works which are all set in fine silver to compliment the colors found in the fired copper.
A multi-talented Artist, Marquis implements hot and cold metalsmithing techniques such as soldering, bezel setting, riveting, wire wrapping, forging and fusing.
Join us for an exhibition opening on Saturday, February 8th from 11am – 2pm. The opening reception will feature complimentary refreshments and hors d’oeuvres and an Artist meet and greet.
The exhibition will be on display in the upstairs loft of the Roycroft Power House (Visitor Center) from Saturday, February 8th until Monday, April 6th and can be viewed daily, 7 days a week from 10am-5pm.
