In Tandem: The Life and Work of Jerry and Evelyn Ackerman at Design Within Reach Scottsdale

FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019In this one-night pop-up exhibit at Design Within Reach Scottsdale, we enjoyed a bite and glass of wine as we viewed local valley collectors' examples of the Ackerman's mosaics and tapestries, then watched the 22-minute documentary on the Ackermans — a dynamic power couple of California Modern Design.  FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019Laura Ackerman Shaw walked the group through a few pieces and wrapped up with observations on Growing up Modern in her parents' home and studio.FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019 FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019An exclusive collection of Jenev ceramics designed in 1953 were available for order from DWR.FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019Thanks so much to all the local collectors who lent their pieces for us to hang for the exhibition!FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019FILL_IN for Modern Phoenix Week 2019Photos ©2019 Laura Ackerman-Shaw, DWR Scottsdale and Modern Phoenix LLC
