On view at LACMA starting October 1st as part of the “Beyond Bling” show by Lois Boardman.
Two years ago this month, The Nartonis Project had the great honor of curating a gallery show on the work of historical West Coast/Taos feather-artist Nicki Marx.
The solo show “Marx Rising” was co-curated with Reform Gallery/Gerard O’Brien. What a fabulous success!! We sold over a dozen of Marx’s pieces during the shows run and the story just still keeps rippling… The show generated glowing national coverage. in design publications such as “C” California Style Magazine, American Craft, The Intelligent Collector, LA Fashion and Ornament Magazines.
The legendary fashion photographer Philip Dixon shot the front cover of Heritage Auctions Fall 2015 20th C. Design catalog. Nickis work has been featured in multiple gallery shows since.
One of the historically important Marx pieces from the “Marx Rising” show was acquired by Los Angeles County Museum for their permanent collection and will be on view starting October 1st at LACMA as part of “Beyond Bling!” The “Beyond Bling” show is the wonderful Lois Boardman’s comprehensive collection of studio jewelry. I hope to see you there!
