Just in time for Mother’s Day, designer and curator Omo Misha, of Omo Misha Jewelry, is bringing out some of her vintage pieces as part of “Harlem Days Harlem Nights” at the Studio Museum in Harlem.
Every day is Mother’s Day, but May has always possessed a different kind of magic, don’t you agree? Misha reminded me of this special, giddy feeling that many people get, and starting Friday, May 8 thorough Sunday, May 10 (Mother’s Day weekend), she will be unpacking her one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry for a very special trunk show! It’s the perfect compliment to the euphoric rush, aka “spring fever,” that colors the month of May.
The selection will include some signature OMJ classics, coupled with new styles and even a re-introduction of a few throwback pieces, a la Brooklyn!
Most experienced pop-up shop and trunk show shoppers know the rules: arrive early, and if you like it, buy it immediately because if you turn your back, it will be gone. Those rules especially apply with the work of OMJ.
It’s easy enough to check the website, but the hours are as follows: Friday, May 8 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, May 9 and 10, noon to 6 p.m. Right after that, mark your calendars for May 14 to 17 because the long-awaited FLUX Fair has finally arrived!
Held at the historic Corn Exchange Building, the FLUX Fair is positioned as the premier satellite fair to the FRIEZE New York (Randall’s Island) and also celebrates the grand re-opening of this landmark building. It’s a four-day event featuring 50 artists from Harlem and around the world and organized by Leanne Stella (Art in Flux).
“I love making art,” Misha confessed to me long ago. “I am passionate about sharing my art and sharing the work of others.”
