“Invented Heirlooms” is an exhibition by local artist Lynette Andreasen. The show features handcrafted jewelry and sculpture utilizing an exciting and unique combination of precious metals and found objects. Works contain narratives relating to both past and present experiences, revolving around family history, personal relationships, memory, and domestic heirlooms. Viewers are encouraged to revisit their past, consider objects of personal historical significance, and reflect on their own relationships. Andreasen makes use of familiar found objects rich in history, such as antique silver platters, discarded flatware, and chandelier crystals; She embraces marks of use and wear while also incorporating delicate detail through the addition of hand embroidery, pearls, silk, and lace. This juxtaposition dually references past generations and intimate activities that held significance to the family. Each found object is carefully selected, and brings its own history to the work; The rust, scratches and dents all play an important role in the stories being told. It is Andreasen’s clarity of purpose and calculated execution which have allowed her to create this compelling collection of pieces that are universally accessible, yet also meaningful on an intimate, personal level: objects of significance that help identify the moments and memories of everyday life.
