Margaret Jacobs: Kinship

April 20 at 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

New York artist Margaret Jacobs creates steel sculptures and finely crafted jewelry, exploring the tensions and harmonies between the man-made and natural worlds. An enrolled member of the Akwesasne Mohawk tribe, Jacobs investigates themes of cultural narrative and material identity. She often employs unexpected or contradictory elements. In her steel sculptures, Jacobs melds forms of medicinal plants and other flora with tools associated with early twentieth-century Mohawk ironworkers. Alongside the stark lines and bare metal of these larger works, the artist’s colorful jewelry features botanicals– such as garlic, mint, and strawberry – arranged in groupings, as “partner pieces” charged with a quiet strength and beauty.

Gallery Hours: Wednesdays-Fridays, 12-5 pm & Saturdays, 12-8 pm

The 2024 exhibition year is presented by Mascoma Bank. Sponsored in part by the Maslow Family Foundation. Hospitality sponsors, Lake Champlain Chocolates, Farrell Distributing, and William Hill Estate Winery.
