Zilberschmuck presents an eye-catching exhibit called Making a Spectacle of Myself by Calgary artist Jackie Anderson, Feb. 18 through March 31, 910 Kingston Rd. Anderson has been wearing glasses since she was a child, and over the past 10 years has created many unique and unusual glasses that she said were inspired by architecture, music and commerce.
“This exhibition, Making a Spectacle of Myself, reunites earlier eyewear, which was more functional as frames with lenses, with ‘eye adornment’ which became akin to putting on a pair of eyewear as one would a pair of earrings, and introduces new works from this year which have become more object and jewelry oriented,” says Anderson in her artist statement. “My whimsical work reflects influences from ancient and contemporary architecture and structures, to retro signage, textiles, songs and puns.”
