EXPO ‘Amber Chamber’ – Gallery Velvet da Vinci, San Francisco (USA) – 1-31 Oct. 2015

Amber Chamber
New jewelry from an ancient material…
Artists’ Reception: Friday, October 2, 6-8pm

Amber chamber - velvet da Vinci(Helfried Kodre, Brooch, 2015, Amber, sterling silver)

Featured Artists:   Elisabeth Defner — Christiane Förster Heidemarie HerbHerman Hermsen Beate Klockmann Helfried Kodré Philip Sajet Peter Skubic Gisbert Stach Petra Zimmermann

This exhibition shows a number of different approaches to amber, running the gamut from artists working with amber for the first time, to those who have been working with it for an extended period.  The contrasts in these works should help to update the traditional and still rather one-sided view of amber jewelry, showing new possibilities about this interesting material.  Amber, fossilized tree resin, has been appreciated for its color and inherent beauty since Neolithic times.
Curated by Heidemarie Herb.

EXPO ‘Amber Chamber’- The Ring Gallery, Legnica (Poland) – 28 Avril-7 Juin 2015

Amber Chamber

 The Ring Gallery, Legnica, Poland – curator : Heidemarie Herb
The opening of the travelling exhibition, which presents ten renown artists taking a fresh look on amber, coincides with the Legnica Jewellery Festival Silver.
This exhibition shows a number of different approaches to amber, running the gamut from artists working with amber for the first time, to those who have been working with it for an extended period. The contrasts in these works should help to update the traditional and still rather one-sided view of amber jewelry, showing new possibilities about this interesting material.
