Halstead Design Challenge Exhibition: MEMENTO
A picture is worth 1000 words. What does your image reveal? Part of your family history, a treasured memory, or an object you want to immortalize? The 2017 Halstead Design Challenge “Memento” asked 200 metalsmiths to incorporate a photo of their choice into a brooch constructed primarily from materials in the Halstead challenge kit. A juried selection from all entries is exhibited at Gallery Rhino. Expect to see work reflecting on deeply personal stories.

A 2-Part Exhibition
Second Installment of a group exhibition series created by Annika Pettersson, Matt Lambert, Sofia Björkman, and Adam Grinovich that combines the jewelry object with the body through image, engaging the audience in an immersive narrative constructed by the constellation of the artists combined works.

20/20 – Creative Collaborations Multiplied
Collaborations are a unique form of education; they bring new ideas to our work. Sue Amendolara chose 21 artists to join her in an experiment. Each partner received a sterling silver shape and the directive to finish the piece. The result is a collection of 21 artworks that, not surprisingly, differ greatly in style, shape, and scale.
