FORCE OF NATURE: Highlights from the Myrna B. Palley Art Jewelry Collection is a testament to Mrs. Palley’s indomitable spirit and her keen eye as a collector. It also pays homage to the special relationships Palley forged with the artists whose beautiful works she so proudly wore, including Kat Cole, Giselle Courtney, Steven Ford, David Forlano, Karen Gilbert, Tzuri Gueta, Chris Hentz, Mirjiam Hiller, Linda MacNeil, Julie Milhalisin, Sabine Müller, Maryanne Petrus-Gilbert, Joyce Scott, Luca Tripaldi, and Jazmin Winters. Each worked in a dynamic range of techniques and media, all of which are highlighted in this small but compelling exhibition.

Co-curated by Linda MacNeil and Jeannine Falino, Force of Nature was made possible thanks to the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council; the Miami-Dade Mayor and Board of Commissioner; the State of Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture; and the Palley Family. logos for AAM, MDC, and FLDCA
