Aleris Hart, MA

Aleris HartA professional jewelry artist for over twenty years, Hart's jewelry has been shown nationwide in galleries and museums including the Cleveland Museum of Art, Butler Art Institute and the Monterey Art Museum. She is an internationally published author of technical articles in her field. Hart's design background is diverse and includes designing jewelry, illustrations and logos for such clients as Royal Viking Cruise Lines as well as commercial interior design. Hart's interest in three dimensional form has been expressed in her jewelry, which the New York Times calls "Sculptural and Light catching".

During her eleven years at Folsom Lake College, Hart created a comprehensive metal arts program that has been enthusiastically received by the community and students.

"Through my personal creative experience, and that of my students as a college art professor, I became convinced of the importance of art in expressing and enhancing the life experience. Each one of us can use art as a personal language to express something that is going on in our lives, and we can communicate with each other through the language of color, line and form in a very meaningful way."
