Pamela Ritchie with:in  -  October 28-November 20, 2010

with:in is a story about fine detail and the process of harnessing ideas, influences, accidents and intuition. with:in is about form and shape and line and the madness of spending an eternity creating something so small.
with:in is about miniscule spaces where hidden secrets and histories lie.
with:in is about matter and myth and the close at hand.

Pamela Ritchie continues to be a major force in the world of Canadian jewellery.  Born in Amherst, Nova Scotia in 1952, she quickly distinguished herself with a Nova Scotia Talent Trust Scholarship and a major award from the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, to pursue post graduate jewellery research in Norway, 1979-80.

Returning to Canada, she completed her MFA in 1982, and has become one of our most prolific artist-jewellers, participating in more than 60 group and solo exhibitions throughout North America, Australia, Japan, Korea and Europe.  Her work has appeared in numerous catalogues and periodicals, and has been collected by major institutions, including the Nova Scotia Art Bank and the Kunstindustrimuseum, Norway.

Professor of the Jewellery Department at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design since 1984, Pamela Ritchie has developed Canada’s only BFA and MFA degree programs in jewellery design into an internationally recognized Department, offering both silversmithing and goldsmithing.

 Of her teaching, one of her students, Paul McClure has remarked:

 « My experience as a student of Pamela Ritchie was integral to my development as an artist.  Her extensive knowledge of art and jewellery and her ability to challenge and encourage my work were important resources and inspirations throughout my education.  Pamela’s commitment to the field and influence as both an educator and an artist have continued to command my respect and are invaluable assets to the art jewellery community in Canada. »

Her commitment to education is also reflected in her past work in the Philippines for the International Development Research Centre, Ottawa.  Recently, following research in the UK on computer assisted design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM), she has set up a CAD suite for jewellers and is participating in the planning and implimentation of new technology for the department.

Active professionally, she has lectured in Canada, England, USA, and Korea.  She has promoted Canadian jewellery as the Canadian advisor for the European exhibitions Jugend Gestaltet, Ornamenta I, Schmuckszene, Schmuck 1996 – 2005  and was the Canadian representative for the German publication Art Aurea..
