The Biggs Museum of American Art, 406 Federal St., Dover, will highlight its 25th Silver Anniversary Celebration by opening an exhibition by American silversmith Michael Izrael Galmer, titled “Monumental: Michael Izrael Galmer, Silversmith,” with an opening reception set for 5 to 7 p.m. April 6.
Based in New York City, Galmer has succeeded in becoming one of the country's leading craftsmen, having created silverworks for Tiffany and Co., Lenox, Gorham and Kirk Stieff. With a unique casting technique, the artist has developed a wide variety of decorative jewelry and vessels as well as the renowned Preakness trophy. The artist is following an impulse to create much larger works for commemorative and contemporary sculptures.
The exhibition will be open to the public from April 6 through May 20, and will be accompanied by a variety of programs and opportunities to meet the artist, both at the opening reception and a program, “Speaking Silver with Featured Artist Michael Izrael Galmer,” set for 6 p.m. April 25.
