Glen Foerd, 5001 Grant Ave., announced a new art exhibit in the library bookcases of its historic main house, on view throughout the month of July. Home Waters at Glen Foerd features wearable sculptures by jewelry artist Barb Baur. 

Baur, a professor at Tyler School of Art, Temple University, and program manager of Mural Arts Tacony LAB Community Art Center, is exhibiting her work in the first-floor library of the mansion. The exhibit, which opened June 30, runs until July 31. Visitors can enjoy the artwork during Glen Foerd’s regular open hours from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

On July 13, at 1 p.m., Baur will give a free, public artist talk for which advance registration is appreciated. Additional works will be on display, and open hours will be extended until 3 p.m. The artist will share information about the unique design process, which often incorporates 3D printing and hand dyeing, alongside traditional jewelry-making techniques. Register by calling 215-632-5330.

Also on July 13, at 11 a.m., just before her artist talk, Baur will lead a free jewelry-making workshop, Recycled Ripples Jewelry, presented by Tacony LAB in the dining room of Glen Foerd’s main house. Participants should register for the workshop by calling 215-632-5330. Baur’s company, Fair Winds Jewelry, produces and sells a number of pieces of jewelry with nautical themes. https://fairwindsjewelry.com
