A State of Wonder

Those of us lucky enough to live in Washington DC were treated this past season to a ground-breaking exhibit at the Renwick Gallery entitled “Wonder.”  Much has been written about this well-attended installation and I for one think it speaks for itself.

My favorite room in the exhibit was Jennifer Angus’s “insect room.”  It was simply mind-boggling!

Ms. Angus’s insects reminded me of a jeweler whose work we’ve carried for years, Laurie Flannery.  Laurie’s charming bees, dragonflies and birds are the perfect reminder for us to rejoice in the fact that springtime is a glorious time to live in this vibrant city!
