Dallas artist Jeanette Korab will debut her newest works at Milan Gallery in Sundance Square for the Spring Gallery Night on March 29, 2014.  Inspired by her latest travels in Turkey, Ms. Korab will introduce her new “Jewels” series, as well as new images from her ” Paris” and “Mardi Gras” Series.  Korab’s  “Jewels” mixed media images were created to reflect and complement her new line of imported Turkish jewelry which will also be shown with the corresponding images.  Seven of her mixed media images will be on view with the works of 30 other artists.  Milan Gallery, which is located at 505 Houston Street, will open at noon.  Patrons can meet the artists at the reception from 6-10 p.m. and enjoy wine and music.   

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. 

Rounding out the works by Ms. Korab will be a new piece from her “Paris” series which  features a large, intensely colored Eiffel Tower, and two works from her “Mardi Gras’ series which are inspired by the celebration in Mazatlan, Mexico.  All of these works are framed original mixed media.  They will be on display through April.

The Milan Gallery features over 500 pieces of original artwork from national and international artists. Oils, acrylics, watercolors, mixed media and sculptures are carried, as well as fine art reproductions and serigraphs.  Milan Gallery caters to private collectors, commercial firms and interior designers, providing both the prompt service and professionalism its customers have come to expect.
