Coming to BAM: Mary Lee Hu

Choker #40

Renowned Seattle jeweler Mary Lee Hu's creations are showing at the Bellevue Arts Museum starting Feb. 7. This retrospective is titled "Knitted, Knotted, Twisted & Twined: The Jewelry of Mary Lee Hu."

Stop by and see more than 90 earrings, rings, brooches and neckpieces from the 1960s through today. Hu, who is based in Seattle, uses wire in many ways like textiles, creating her pieces with twining, twisting and knotting. Her work can be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. This retrospective has been put together from both public and private collections.

Knitted, Knotted, Twisted & Twined runs Feb. 7-June 17. For more information, visit the Bellevue Arts Museum website.
