DURANGO, CO – Linda Schott, Dean of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences at Fort Lewis College, will lead a talk, “What’s Jewelry Got To Do With Love,” February 10th at Sorrel Sky Gallery.
Building upon last year’s event, “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” Schott will discuss how certain types of jewelry have become symbolic of love. Rubies, pearls, and diamonds as well as particular designs such as hearts and doves, have evolved through historic tradition to represent love in all its shapes and forms.
Schott, who has her Ph.D. in history from Stanford University, will use both famous, historic examples of jewelry and contemporary pieces from Sorrel Sky Gallery in her presentation.
In addition to hosting this Valentine event, Sorrel Sky Gallery is donating 10% of all profits between February 10 – 14 to the School of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences at Fort Lewis College.
“What’s Jewelry Got To Do With Love” will be at 6 pm on February 10th at Sorrel Sky Gallery, 828 Main Ave., Durango, CO. Admission is free.
