group six in Gallery Bielak

Five excellent jewellery designers from Warsaw; Bogumil Bytomski, Pawel Kaczynski, Krzysztof Roszkiewicz, Marcin Tyminski i Arkadiusz Wolski, daily working on their own. They participate in numerous solo and group exhibitions ( Polish and International), won many prizes, once in the year 'group six" unite to present jewellery as one team. They started in 2001, until today they already have shown following exhibitions; "Bytomski, Kaczynski, Roszkiewicz, Tyminski, Wolski", “six”; "founding"; "collection from Italy", "in the face of" "gold". This year topic is "design". All together they designed in computer the "mother" ring, then each of group members put his impressions into it. For each exhibition the group design not only jewellery but also its exposition method. It's really interesting experience to observe how group members think differently about the same exercise. Really nice and interesting exhibition. You can see it in Gallery Bielak until 5th July 2007. andrzej bielak Krakow, June 2007

Enter Platina Jewellery
Platina guests Gallery Nivå125 Båstad

For the summer of 2007, Gallery NIVÅ125 BÅSTAD has invited Platina to curate an exhibit called "Enter Platina Jewellery", during the period from June 1st to July 15th.
With this exhibit, Platina intends to offer each visitor an experience transcending the ordinary in the art of jewellery. Here you will not find common, mass-produced jewellery, intended for necks or lapels. Instead, our door will open into the finest and holiest room in the world of jewellery.
This time Platina has chosen pieces by Swedish and international jewellery designers who have something else to show us.
Their work tells about our everyday life, our thoughts, our destinies and our bodies, but also give us chills and hair-raising experiences.

When visitors have parked Ted Noten's Mercedes Benz next to Maya Kini's houses, taken the first step over the threshold, stepped into the hall and continued through all the rooms in the building and out again onto the terrace, they will have been able to:
- prod and squeeze Iris Eichenberg's heart,
- eat Anna Atterling's pralines/bonbons, and Sam Tho Duong's cherries with Monika Strasser's ENORMOUSLY beautiful jewellery made of silverware.
Visitors will have noticed how their blood can drop from Sissi Westerberg's pocket, will have come out of Auli Laitinen's closet, gone to the lady's room with Charlotte Sinding, used Lucia Vogt's combs and washed their hands with Celio Braga's decorated body soaps. Furthermore, Ulrika Swärd recounts the price of gold.

Artists: Catta Hällzon Sweden, Agnieszka Knap Sweden, Auli Laitinen Sweden, Ted Noten The Netherlands, Jantje Fleischhut The Netherlands, Maya Kini USA, Karen Pontoppidan Denmark/Germany, Monica Strasser Swizerland, Åsa Lockner Sweden, Celio Braga Brasil/The Netherlands, Kati Nulponen Finland, Charlotte Sinding Sweden, Iris Eichenberg The Netherlands. Ulrika Svärd Sweden, Helena Lindholm Sweden, Sam Tho Duong Vietnam/Germany, Sissi Westerberg Sweden, Jacomijn van der Donk The Netherlands, Annika Åkerfelt Sweden, Luzia Vogt Swizerland, Jenny Edlund Sweden, Sofia Björkman Sweden, Anna Atterling Sweden, Pia Aleborg Sweden

"NEW JEWELRY" - Ramon Puig Cuyas & Silvia Walz
"HYBRIDIZATION" - Junko Iikima
May 23 - June 30, 2007
Artist reception Friday, May 25, 2007 6-8pm
Velvet Da Vinci, San Francisco, CA USA

An exhibition of two Barcelona jewelers and one Japanese sculptor is on view through June 30. Velvet Da Vinci Gallery offers a view of new cutting edge jewelry and small sculptures from bold international artists. Two Barcelona jewelers show influences of both Barcelona and the Mediterranean in their works. Both artists use found objects, precious and non-precious metals, and enamels but with quite different results. The new series of work by Ramon Puig Cuyas, called Imago Mundi (World Views), uses Formica, bone, alabaster, ebony and silver. Silvia Walz's new work, Luz y Sombra (Light and Shadow), consists of silver, enamel and various other elements such as pearls and coral. Junko Iijima's work, "Hybridization" combines traditional Japanese teapot forms and contemporary anime with Pop Culture. The installation of bronze sculpture and drawings clearly reflects the confluence of cultures in her Japanese heritage.

"What Lies Beneath" - invitational artist jewelry exhibition curated by Allison Barnett
May 4 – June 3, 2007
Patina Gallery - Santa Fe, NM USA

The exhibit will explore the theme of layers, and the translucency of stones and materials. Artists are invited to work with gemstones, veiling or revealing a hidden surprise, or pierced metals casting light on stones or other surfaces. Each artist has provided just one piece designed and hand fashioned exclusively for this exhibit. Allison Barnett, the owner of Patina Gallery, has a BFA in metalsmithing from Syracuse University and has an intimate understanding of the art. Her knowledge of the field and highly discerning aesthetic have been cultivated over time. For over eight years, Barnett has been selecting the jewelry artists who show work with Patina and is, in a way, already an experienced curator. “What Lies Beneath” is Barnett’s first thematically organized exhibition and the first exhibit for which the title curator has been applied. The artists invited to participate are among the most important working in art jewelry today. Their approaches and use of materials vary widely. Petra Class, for example, is known for the softness of her metal work, organic forms and use of raw precious stones. Pat Flynn works with blackened iron. Phil Poirier hand forges the challenging Damascus steel. Jeff and Susan Wise create highly colored, almost toy-like, kinetic pieces in high carat gold. Participants are Petra Class, Andy Cooperman, Sandra Enterline, Pat Flynn, Barbara Heinrich, Harold O’Connor, Tod Pardon, Phil Poirier, Todd Reed, Sam Shaw, Alexandra Watkins, Jeff and Susan Wise, Gill Galloway-Whitehead and Michael Zobel.

Golden Clogs, Dutch Mountains Andrea Wagner Ineke Heerkens Jantje Fleischhut Stephanie Jendis Katja Prins
GOLDEN CLOGS, DUTCH MOUNTAINS: New Jewelry from the Netherlands

Golden Clogs, Dutch Mountains is an exhibition showing the young generation of Dutch avantgarde jewelry with strong and innovative work by eleven emerging artists. It will open at Velvet Da Vinci Gallery, San Francisco on March 21 till April 20, 2007. It was curated for them by Andrea Wagner (studio jeweller in Amsterdam) who further organized that the exhibition continues to a number of other galleries in the United States and Canada. Testifying to the exceptional originality and creative mentality in The Netherlands the charismatic and compelling work has an unconstrained playfulness and subtle humor. The innovative use of a wide scope of materials is the outcome of the arists’ experimental curiosity in their search for narrative materiality. These intelligently beautiful jewels project a strong visual language that is based to a large extent on the power of the emotional value of material conveying the meaning behind the work. There is an exhibition catalogue Golden Clogs, Dutch Mountains with 22 color illustrations exceptionally photographed by Corriette Schoenaerts. A lecture on the Dutch creative mentality and the historical background of contemporary jewelry in that country will be given by Andrea Wagner to accompany the exhibitions.
