Ga. Designer's Jewelry On Display

Atlanta's High Museum of Art is set to present works by a Georgia-based jewelry designer.

The High will present "Gogo: Nature transformed" from Jan. 19 through June 23. The exhibition features the work of Janet "Gogo" Ferguson, who lives on Cumberland Island off Georgia's Atlantic coast.

More than 60 pieces of Ferguson's work and decorative home pieces will be on display. The exhibition will explore her evolution as an artist as well as the debut of two new pieces created specifically for the High: a 6-by-8-foot wall sculpture inspired by New England seaweed and an ottoman inspired by a sea urchin.

Ferguson has drawn inspiration from nature throughout her career. But her technique has changed from working with shells and bones to casting in gold and silver.
