Moving Tides: Honoring Animals and Jewelry Ethics
Exhibition and Artist Talk: Jeweler Seth Michael Carlson // MASS MIGRATIONS

Gravers Lane Gallery is pleased to announce Seth Michael Carlson’s first solo exhibition of jewelry at GLG, “MASS MIGRATIONS”. The exhibit will open with a reception and artist talk on Friday, May 24th 5-8pm at Gravers Lane Gallery, in Chestnut Hill and will close July 15th 2024.

The jewelry industry has dark corners. A minimal research online easily uncovers troubling facts with issues such as human rights violations, political conflicts, and detrimental environmental impact –to name but a few. Jewelry is associated with opulence, celebration, luxury, glitz and romance. Minimal thought is usually given to the impact the industry has on the environment, animals and human beings. Thank goodness that the rise of modern era eco-consciousness in almost every industry has resulted in a growing number of conscious consumers who are raising the jewelry industry standards. Carlson is a jeweler who is not only an outstanding craftsman, but is building his art practice with integrity. He is making jewelry ethically and sustainably which means the materials the jewelry is made from ensures fair wages, safe working conditions, and minimizing environmental degradation. He is concerned about animal welfare and environmental stewardship.

MASS MIGRATIONS is an art jewelry exhibit that strives to capture the character of the fauna and flora that Seth encounters in the natural world –a celebration of its beauty. It is important to him that each piece is handcrafted using ethically sourced gold, silver, and gemstones. He sees every piece as a celebration of the natural world and believes that the materials he chooses should reflect the value of life that he seeks to convey. Seth believes in capturing the character of each life form through subtle expressive gestures. With a focus on environmental preservation, each piece is a snapshot in time to bring awareness and appreciation to the lesser known species.
