EXPO ‘Delirio y Cordura’ – Velvet da Vinci gallery (USA) – 9 Juill.-10 Aout 2014

Velvet da Vinci : Coming in July… « Delirio y Cordura » (Delirium and Sanity)
Chilean Contemporary Jewelry

Opening Reception: Friday July 11, 6-8 pm

Artist’s Talk: 6:30 pm

Coming in July... Delirio y Cordura (Delirium and Sanity)Chilean Contemporary Jewelryhttp://www.velvetdavincigallery.com/upcoming/
In the ten years since Joyas Jóias, Velvet da Vinci’s first exhibition of Latin American jewelry, there has been a growing awareness and appreciation for the achievements of contemporary jewelers in Mexico, Argentina, Peru and Brazil. For our exhibition, Delirio y Cordura (Delirium and Sanity) we concentrate on contemporary Chilean jewelry artists. Each jeweler was inspired by the themes of delirium and sanity, choosing one or both concepts. The idea of harmony and balance versus  insanity and irrationality influence the creation of each work through an exploration of shape, color, material, and concept.  Chaos, out of order.

EXPO ‘Claudio Pino : Power of Rings’ – Galerie Meister und Margarita, Frankfurt (DE) – 14-21 Juin 2014

« Claudio Pino : Power of Rings » – Galerie Für Schmuck Meister und Margarita (Frankfurt am Main, Germany)

"Claudio Pino: Power of Rings" - Galerie Für Schmuck Meister und Margarita (Frankfurt am Main, Germany) 14-Jun-2014 - 21-Jun-2014
This solo show presents over 30 one-of-a-kind sculptural rings designed by Claudio Pino and also questions the unique Power of Rings. Whether worn daily or on special occasions, rings are the most common and evocative pieces of jewelry, wrote Rachel Church. Rings are very personal and embody symbolic meaning. They can be worn as protective talismans or simply as beautiful, precious accessories. What, then, makes a ring so powerful, even in contemporary times? Of course, we cannot disregard our past if we are to understand why rings remain so important in our culture.
From ancient Egypt to the twenty-first century, their long, rich history is intricate and fascinating. Rings endure as objects that have direct connections to our body language and serve as a reflection of our appearance and style. They may also recall memories of our loved ones and represent victories, and their vintage surfaces project unmistakable power.

EXPO ‘TRANSPARENCE’ – Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h, Montréal (CA) – 25 Oct.-24 Nov. 2013

‘TRANSPARENCE’

Une nouvelle exposition rassemblant 14 joailliers québécois s’installe finalement à Montréal, après un passage aux États-Unis et à Ottawa.
Dévoilement le vendredi 25 octobre dès 17h à la Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h, située au 4836, boulevard Saint-Laurent, à Montréal, l’exposition présente des œuvres inédites inspirées du thème Transparence.

vernissage Vendredi 25 octobre de 17 h à 20h
Transparence, exposition collective de 14 joailliers du Québec -  Galerie Noel Guyomarc'h

« Dans le contexte actuel, où nous sommes justement en quête de vérité et d’honnêteté, le thème Transparence s’est imposé d’emblée », explique M. Noel Guyomarc’h, propriétaire de la galerie. «La transparence, c’est aussi un éclatement des concepts qui pousse l’artiste à innover, à aborder son œuvre en élargissant le regard pour voir au-delà du simple objet. Il s’agit avant tout d’une nouvelle façon de se représenter le monde. »
Un collectif à succès
Le collectif de 14 joailliers québécois a déjà connu un vif succès dans la capitale nationale et à New York, où ils exposeront à nouveau en 2015. L’exposition Transparence sera présentée jusqu’au 24 novembre prochain à la Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h, où les visiteurs auront la chance d’admirer le travail des joailliers, de se familiariser avec cette véritable forme d’art, de même que de se procurer des pièces uniques signées par les 14 artistes réputés.
L’exposition Transparence rassemble en effet une centaine d’œuvres inédites au total. Chacune des pièces présentées a d’ailleurs été minutieusement conçue et choisie pour son caractère unique, la qualité des métaux et pierres précieuses utilisés ainsi que la démarche artistique entourant l’œuvre

EXPO ‘Delirio & Cordura’ – Centro Cultural Scuola Italiana, Santiago (Chile) – 8 Aout-13 Sept. 2013

Delirio & Cordura – 8-08/13-09 – Centro Cultural Scuola Italiana

Delirio & Cordura - 8-08/13-09
El Centro Cultural Scuola inaugurará el día jueves 8 de Agosto a las 19:30 horas la muestra de Joyería Contemporánea “Delirio y Cordura”. La exposición está conformada por las obras de 26 joyeros, 16 chilenos y 10 de diferentes nacionalidades quienes actualmente están estudiando en la prestigiosa escuela de joyería Alchimia en Florencia, Italia.
Para la muestra, cada orfebre se inspiró en la temática sobre el delirio y la cordura, escogiendo uno o ambos conceptos, por tanto la armonía y equilibrio versus la locura e irracionalidad de las formas, colores, materiales, fueron el motor creativo de cada joya. « Nos gusta mantener delirio y cordura separados mutuamente. Hay espacios para el orden, como las universidades, y también hay momentos para la locura, como el carnaval. Pero ¿Qué pasaría si estuvieran juntos? », es la reflexión que plantearon este grupo de orfebres y que se ve reflejada en este montaje. Cabe recalcar que en esta muestra el trabajo de los diferentes materiales utilizados (plata, oro, cobre, piedras, acrílicos, ceras, cerámicas, entre otros) y técnicas con que se realizó cada joya, dan forma a diversas piezas que destacan por su creatividad, complejidad, manufactura y destreza que trascienden lo meramente ornamental, convirtiéndose en objetos exclusivos y únicos que dan cuenta del estado de la joyería contemporánea.
La exposición estará disponible en la Sala Terracota del Centro Cultural Scuola Italiana del 8 de Agosto hasta el 13 de Septiembre. .

Throughout Canada, the United States, Asia, and Europe, Claudio Pino is renowned for his sculptural and kinetic rings. For the past two decades, the artist has devoted himself exclusively to the creation of one-of-a-kind pieces. In this solo exhibition, he presents more than 30 of these original creations, as he investigates “The Power of the Rings”.Inspired by the exploration of moving systems, of insect metamorphoses, and of the rhythm of urban life, his creations first come to life through his combinations of forms and colours. Pino is also passionate about gemstones, and is fascinated by their properties. He juxtaposes icy silvers with the warmth of gold, a peaceful emerald green with a flamboyant ruby red.
From conception to creation, each ring arouses anew in-depth research into the meeting place between elegance and innovation, while bridging the gap between historical and modern esthetics. Captivated by the profound relationship between jewels and their owners, Pino creates rings that are unquestionably comfortable, that “belong” to the hand. He has even added miniscule mechanisms to some of his pieces to ensure that the gems set in them will follow the flow of the wearer’s gesticulations.
His creations have enjoyed resounding success. He has won numerous awards and distinctions, including a special prize at the Cheongju International Craft Biennale, and the Metal Arts Guild of Canada’s Steel Trophy for Best Design 2009.

Jewelry in a New Iron Age by 60 International Artists

Velvet da Vinci San Francisco exhibition
March 1 – April 14, 2013
Artists’ reception Friday, March 1, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m.

FERROUS, an exhibition of jewelry using iron, steel, and steel alloys. Although the use of iron dates back more than two thousand years, this humble material is more commonly used for agriculture and industrial purposes than adornment. A significant exception is the Berlin Iron Jewelry of the early 19th century. The Prussian Royal family funded the uprising against Napoleon by encouraging wealthy citizens to exchange their precious gold and silver for intricately fabricated iron jewelry
.Intricacy is just one aspect the 60 artists of FERROUS explore with this versatile material. Known for its strength and lightness, the steel and iron jewelry of FERROUS is both rusty and shiny, sheet and wire, bejeweled and modest. The exhibition will take place simultaneously at Velvet da Vinci Gallery in San Francisco and as a virtual exhibition at crafthaus online. In May FERROUS will travel to 18Karat Gallery in Toronto, Canada as part of The Society of North American Goldsmith’s annual conference.

EXPO ‘Innovation & Craftsmanship in Metal: Jewelry Artists of Québec’ – Aaron Faber Gallery, New York (US) – 4-26 Mai 2012

Aaron Faber Gallery to Host 14 of Québec’s Most Celebrated Jewelry Artists -
Exhibit: May 4-26

The Exhibition is brought in partnership with the Québec Government Office in New York and SODEC, the Québec government body that matches the passion of artistic creation with the power of economic development; providing cultural enterprises with solutions designed to nurture Québec artists and promote the production, distribution and exportation of their work.

Claudio Pino rings

The celebration of artistry and creativity is as ingrained in the culture of Québec as it is a calling card for New York City.  It was thus inevitable that such a shared principle would lead to the upcoming exhibition, “Innovation and Craftsmanship in Metal:  Jewelry Artists of Québec”, opening at Aaron Faber Gallery, 666 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY on Thursday, May 3, 2012.  Ongoing through May 26, 2012, the exhibition will feature fourteen of Québec’s most talented jewelry artists, and their extraordinary maneuverings in precious and semi-precious metals and stones.  Debuting in its first year at Aaron Faber Gallery, Jewelry Artists of Québec offers both trade and consumers a glimpse of  highly original works of jewelry artistry using precious and semi-precious stones and metals.  The fourteen participating Québecois artists have audaciously redefined conventional approaches to jewelry design, with each artist’s viewpoint quite distinctly their own.

While Claudio Pino’s kinetic movement rings are painstakingly designed to do more than just adorn a finger, Matthieu Cheminee bestows young, fresh life to old, discarded jewelry in a recycled kaleidoscope of sculptural virtuosity.

As Janis Kerman entices us to see the beauty in opposites and asymmetrical balance, Laurie Dansereau invites us to become one with nature as her floral necklaces garnish décolletages in a splendor of anthers and petals in sterling silver and exotic woods.

And as Jean-Pierre Gauvreau’s rings capture the grand pursuits of the most genius architects, Pierre-Yves Paquette uses the ancient art of mokume gane to harmonize various hues of gold and silver into a visually stunning crescendo.
