New Jewellery by Members of the Society of North American Goldsmiths
This exhibition, jointly produced by SNAG and the Shipley Gallery, Gateshead, England, opened at the Shipley Gallery in March 1996. It was the inaugural event of the professional conference, “Jewellers Exchange ’96—The International Dimension.” The exhibit then toured three other venues in northern England, stopping at the Birmingham School of Jewellery and Silversmithing; the James Hockey Gallery; Surrey Institute of Art, Farnham; and the Cleveland Craft Centre in Middlesbrough. It then moved to the United States, where it opened at the National Ornamental Metal Museum in Memphis, TN, and moved to its final venue, the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, PA.
Metalsmith’s 2008 Exhibition in Print, “Equilibrium,” presents art that engages the body as site and alters sensorial experience by impacting one or more of the five senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell) and, by extension, the perceptions and actions of the viewer, the wearer, or both.
Works selected by the curators, Kate Bonansinger and Rachelle Thiewes, appear in Metalsmith’s 2008 Exhibition in Print (published in August). In addition, chosen objects will be shown in an exhibition at the Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at the University of Texas at El Paso from January 22 to March 21, 2009.
