Fabergé Exhibit at DIA ends Jan. 21

There are only a few weeks left to see the Detroit Institute of Arts’ (DIA) popular special exhibition Fabergé: The Rise and Fall, the collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, which ends Monday, Jan. 21, 2013.

The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view more than 200 precious objects produced by the House of Fabergé, including six Imperial Easter Eggs, jewel-encrusted parasol and cane handles, an array of enameled frames, animals carved from semi-precious stones and miniature egg pendants. The exhibition is organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, in collaboration with the Detroit Institute of Arts. Educational programming is provided by the GM Foundation.

DIA-goers will have the chance to purchase Fabergé-inspired and Russian-themed items in the shop located at the exit of the exhibition. Among the bestselling pieces are exquisite Fabergé-style egg pendants crafted by the Artel Collection. Owners Matthew and Debbie Duffy will be at the DIA Jan. 18 through 21, along with two of Artel’s Russian master jewelers who were trained in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Israel. They will be demonstrating techniques used in the process of making their pendants. 

The DIA also offers innovative programming in conjunction with Fabergé: The Rise and Fall, including:
_Sunday, January 6, 13, 20, noon–4 p.m.: Transform a variety of egg-shaped materials into miniature works of art using beads, baubles, and bling.
_Saturday, January 12, 2 p.m.: Alexander Caldwell, maker of the replica Fabergé Coronation Egg used in the movie Ocean’s Twelve, reflects on his various artistic responses to Fabergé.
Caldwell has spent the past 25 years studying Karl Fabergé and his methods. The lecture will be followed by a showing of 2004’s /Ocean’s Twelve. Free with museum admission. The lecture is sponsored by the Bernard J. Reilly Fund.
