Here at Tony Brewer and Co., creating beautiful environments is our specialty! It’s only natural then that we would help lend a little TBC flair to the recent opening of the “Gogo: Nature Transformed” exhibit at the High Museum. Featuring spectacular baubles in striking greens and shimmering metals, the exhibit explores the role the natural environment plays in shaping jewelry. It showcases the work of Janet “Gogo” Ferguson – a Georgia designer and creator of fabulous pieces. You know we can’t help but be fans!
The exhibit opened this month with a special event designed by yours truly. Gogo’s work is inspired mainly by found objects from Georgia’s southernmost barrier island, Cumberland Island. With that in mind, we created very nature-inspired décor inspired by the soft green tones and unique textures of the island. We accented with lots of driftwood, succulent plants and Spanish moss to recreate that barrier island beauty.
This is the first museum showing of Gogo’s work, so it’s very exciting. Take a look at some of her work below – and make sure you check out the exhibit, running through July 7.
