Connection – A performative work by artist Dierra Jones | Wed. October 6, 2021 | 6:30 pm EDT | LIVE on ZOOM

Click HERE to RSVP

Join us for performance and discussion with contemporary jewelry artist Dierra Jones. Connection is a performance piece about the personal relationships we form to people and places in our lives. With one connection we form a link, but with many connections, we form a chain. A connection creates stability and sturdiness.


Dierra Jones

Dierra Jones is an artist and a K-5 visual arts teacher based in Savannah, GA. She holds a BFA in Studio Arts from Virginia State University and a MFA in Jewelry from Savannah College of Art and Design. Storytelling and place both psychologically and geographically are important aspects in Jones’s studio practice, where each piece is inscribed with her emotions and identity. This causes a transference between the work and the viewer, which is a subjective experience. 




This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.


For questions, contact Katie Sorenson, Senior Manager of Partnerships and Engagement, at katie@centerforartinwood.org
