The Biggs Museum of American Art is grateful to highlight its 25th Anniversary Celebration with an exhibition on the famed American silversmith, Michael Izrael Galmer. Born to a Jewish family in Soviet Russia, he immigrated with his wife Galina to New York in 1981. Galmer combined his advanced degrees in engineering with a deep-rooted need to express himself artistically to develop a unique process of molding silver. While Galmer is extremely well known for his commercial products of jewelry, accessories and most notably table wares – some produced for the leading American manufacturers of silver today – this exhibition honors a new and more uniquely expressive direction for the artist. At the same time, this fresh body of works explores the emotional impact and, frankly, surprise of immense scale upon admirers of silver objects.
