May 2015 Artist – Dara Rosenwasser

Dara_RDara began her love of making and creating in high school where she started a small business selling handmade hats and jewelry to her circle of friends. Years later, after a decade-long stint as a touring musician, she received her MFA in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. She has worked as a professional photographer since 2006, and continues to exhibit her work on a national level. Here are few words from Dara about her work:

“Antiquated photographic processes allow me to explore the spaces between the tangible and intangible boundaries of memory. In my current exhibit, I investigate reactions through the elements of camera-less exposure and hand-crafted seascapes in these Cyanotype works.”

And regarding her jewelry line D.Lea Design Studio:

“Jewelry-making is very much process-based, experimental, and bold. I am continuously fascinated by reactions of materials and their textures. Metalwork and the pairing of semi-precious stones with silver, copper, and applied flamework is invigorating to me. Something primal and bold meets a place of quiet reflection and I love to discover these spaces while I create!”
