20 North Gallery opens “Intense Adornment”
Solo exhibition of jewelry and metal work by L. Sue Szabo

Toledo, OH—December 31, 2019.  On Friday, January 17, 2020, 20 North Gallery will open “Intense Adornment,” an exhibition of captivating jewelry and metal works by Toledo artist L. Sue Szabo. The exhibit will continue through March 28, 2020.

The “Intense Adornment” exhibit features the intricate fine art presentation works of Szabo, complemented by her timeless adornment pieces. Having over 25 years of metalsmithing experience, Szabo creates dramatic geometric pieces that exemplify her innate skill for imagery through forged metals and enamel.

Sue Szabo (Toledo, Ohio) began practicing medicine in 1988, receiving an M.D. through the Medical College of Ohio (Toledo, Ohio) while studying art through national workshops, the Toledo Museum of Art (Toledo, Ohio) and the University of Toledo in Ohio. Now retired from medical practice, Szabo focuses on metalsmithing and other art endeavors. With over 25 years of metalsmithing experience, Szabo’s artworks have appeared in multiple national and international shows, receiving numerous awards. Szabo has completed impressive commission work, including a major sculptural work for the JP Morgan headquarters in London and a 750-piece enamel sculpture for the British cruise ship the Brittania. Szabo’s metal works appear in over 20 books and publications including Art Jewelry Today 4, Tales from the Toolbox and The Art of Fine Enameling 2nd Edition. Several of Szabo’s recent artworks have been selected to appear in Out of This World: Jewelry in the Space Age, an upcoming exhibit at the Tellus Science Museum in Atlanta, Georgia.

In addition to the “Intense Adornment” exhibit, 20 North Gallery continues to display glass, paintings, jewelry and artists’ cards by noted artists of the region. Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 4p.m.

20 North Gallery and Sue Szabo will be welcoming friends and collectors at the free Public Reception for “Intense Adornment” on Friday, January 17, from 6 - 9 p.m. The reception will feature a free appetizer buffet and cash bar.
