Dallas artist Jeanette Korab will show her newest works at Shortell Design on Dragon Street for the Dallas Spring Gallery Walk on April 26, 2014. Inspired by her latest travels in Turkey, Ms. Korab will present her new “Jewels” series,  of mixed media images that were created to reflect and complement her new line of imported Turkish jewelry which will also be shown with the corresponding images.  Shortell Design is located at 1115 Dragon Street.  Patrons can meet Ms. Korab at the reception from 6-10 p.m.

Ms. Korab, whose background is in fashion photography and design, creates classic images full of vibrant color that are inspired by her travels.  During her recent trips to Istanbul, she has acquired two lines of custom, handmade jewelry.  One gives a modern twist on the classic lariat by adding a specially-designed 24 kt. gold over bronze bale with an attached large stone of quartz, labradorite and other semi-precious stones. The other line is created from molds of original pieces over 2000 years old that have been excavated at archaeological sites.  These designs are created in bronze and set with pearl, garnet, amethyst, flourite and turquoise stones. “I am captivated by the bold, unique style of the lariats and the antique look of the archaeological designs and the romance of their ancient history,” says Korab.  They spoke to me.”

Korab has married her jewelry and art interests by creating mixed media images of the jewels which fill the canvas and are by turns boldly graphic or dreamy and romantic. They have a distinctly feminine appeal which celebrates the beauty of women who love adornment. Each image will be displayed with the piece of jewelry which inspired it.  They can be purchased together or individually.  All of these works are framed original mixed media. 

Shortell Design, located in the heart of the Dallas Design District, showcases beautiful samples of their latest cutting-edge design projects.  Everything on the showroom floor can be purchased or custom made to meet all residential and commercial design needs.  The showroom has been featured on HGTV.
