Ethno Egyptian aspects in contemporary jewelry - and - Intrapersonal Relations.

In the Harold B. Lemmerman Gallery

May 4 – May 15, 2009

Opening Reception:
Monday, May 4, 5pm – 8pm

Samira El Husseiny:

Ethno Egyptian aspects in contemporary jewelry: Inspired by Egyptian cultural treasures and contemporary trends, boundaries of conventional design will be pushed to make trends, and not follow them.


In my self portrait, I was influenced by both the Egyptian and American cultures. In fact, my final design incorporated an ancient Egyptian face with the face of the Statue of Liberty to form one composite face. My self portrait described my feeling of belonging to both my first and second homes. Using experiences from both cultures, I combine them into works of art.

Melanie Vasa:

Intrapersonal Relations: The awareness of expectations and limitations of one's gender are reflected in contrasts and contradictions - hard vs. soft, man's work vs. woman's work, breathable surface vs. impenetrable armor. The natural forms represented reflect evolving education as a result of varied experiences and the following self-examination.
