Phoenix Art Museum featuring jewelry artist Kilgore, Feb. 8

Posted

The Museum Store at Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 N. Central Ave., will showcase a Jewelry Trunk Show featuring Arizona-based artist Rosa Kilgore on Saturday, Feb. 8.

The southwest jeweler and metalsmith is a fifth generation Arizonan from a "rich lineage of southwestern artisans, gallerists and collectors," according to a press release.

She attended The Orme School and DePaul University where she garnered national awards in jewelry making.

Ms. Kilgore, who creates heirloom-quality jewelry, has always been drawn to the medium of metal, the release said, adding that eventually studied casting and fabrication techniques with a Navajo silversmith, Dorothy Jeffrey.

A trained silversmith, most of her pieces are first fabricated in silver and then molded for casting. Her work is created using the lost wax casting method, combined with other ancient and modern techniques, featuring sterling silver, ancient bronze, pyrite, cultured pearls, and semiprecious stones.

Her jewelry is textured, raw, and has a southwestern perspective, the release described.

“When designing my jewelry, I prioritize versatility and personal style, I want my jewelry to be easy to wear, easy to mix, and timeless,” said Ms. Kilgore in a prepared statement.

She works out of her pine forest home studio in Flagstaff and Studio AFUERA in Scottsdale. Her jewelry is sold in galleries and fine boutiques in Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Montana, and Arizona.

The Museum Store offers 20% off jewelry for museum members, 10% off for non-members with discounts valid at trunk show and online.
