East Hampton - Tiffany & Co. with Kristina Klug, Manager proudly feature unique artworks by pioneering artist Bettina Werner, a/k/a The Salt Queen, who invented the "textured, colorized, salt technique" in the 1980's.

"Tiffany & Co. in East Hampton is thrilled to have artworks from such a well known artist as Bettina Werner on exhibit at the Tiffany store" says Klug. History has taught us the most accomplished artists are those that have a recognizable medium that one can spot from far away - a language of art. Bettina Werner has truly created an entire unique language with her textured salt technique translating to all who encounter her artwork around the globe. It is unmistakably and synonymously profound.

Werner's striking paintings created with Salt crystals have been recognized and selected from prestigious collections in the U.S and Europe exhibited all over the world from the Whitney Museum, Pushkin Museum in Moscow, Portofino Museum Italy, The Detroit Institute of Arts, Triennale Museum in Milan, Chase Manhattan Bank, to the collection of Herbert and Dorothy Vogel.

Tiffany & Co is pleased to bring this precious opportunity curated by Eiman Aziz to meet the internationally acclaimed artist - who creates between a gorgeous Hamptons renovated potato barn and her amazing Wall Street loft, in the Philippe Starck building - to surround your holiday season magic with "Crystals of The Winter Sea."

Says Aziz "Bettina Werner is one of the 50 most accomplished contemporary artists in the world. She developed a new currency for art - Salt. A currency in and of itself that in history was indeed traded as a financial commodity complimenting not only her method, but serving as a parallel to mastering this 'Fifth Element' in her artworks. As winter approaches, the sea changes, the soft air disappears, tides transition, the ocean become a chill, yet the salt still remains."

For more information contact Kristina Klug, Store Manager at kristina.klug@tiffany.com or 631-324-1700. Tiffany & Co. is located at 53 Main Street in East Hampton.
