Gustav Reyes

Gustav Reyes attended the Art Institute of Chicago where he spent time at the Chicago Bauhaus Academy and developed a strong understanding and appreciation for architectural woodworking through his use of salvaged wood. His formal training, hands-on experience, and years of dedication to craft, have allowed him to find the point where nature breathes through the form, striking a balance between the contemporary and the ancient crafting fine art that is deeply personal, contextual and alive.

His work has been showcased in several exhibitions such as the Racine Art Museum Out On A Limb: Contemporary Wood Jewelry in 2012, The American Craft Council Show, 2011, the Bruce Museum "Bijoux: The Origins and Impact of Jewelry", 2012, Craft 2 Wear 40 Artists of the Smithsonian Craft Show 2011 and SOFA Chicago 2011 among many others.
