One would expect Jewelry artists to be limited to objects of personal adornment, but many contemporary makers in this field have gone beyond the constraints of functionality to pursue conceptual interests in areas such as photography, kinetics and sculpture.This exhibition seeks makers whose work demands exploration both on and off of the body. What happens when a metalsmith goes beyond the boundaries of the wearable? How does the work change when function and jewelry mechanics no longer need to be considered? Can the conversation continue seamlessly from a necklace into an installation or sculpture? The exhibition will feature two works by each artist selected: one piece of jewelry or wearable object and one piece that shifts in scale, medium or material in order to further investigate their ideas.Juror: Susie GanchSusie Ganch is currently Associate Professor and Head of the Metals Program at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. She is also Director of Radical Jewelry Makeover, an international traveling community jewelry mining and recycling project. Exhibition Organizers: Sarah Holden and Kat Cole

Sense of Scale: Metal Sculpture and Wearable Art” presents new work by 4 metalsmiths who were challenged to create both small, wearable jewelry and impressive sculpture for the wall or pedestal. Sarah Chapman, Heejin Hwang, Stacey Lee Weber, and Darlys Ewoldt are connected by their experiences as teachers (both past and present) in Lillstreet’s deeply rooted metals department and the diversity of their work speaks to the variety of techniques, materials, and approaches being taught here

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.

Classé dans : Exposition/Exhibition,GALERIES,Heejin HWANG (KR),USA — bijoucontemporain @ 2:41

« magnetic ornament  » Work by Heejin Hwang

March 25 – March 31
Opening Reception Friday, March 25 , 6:00 – 9:00 PM

« “My recent works comprise sculptural units in which steel wire is used as basic material. As the basic structure is needed to construct a building, numerous layers consist of a form in my works, too; this means one’s personality, that is, persona. As I discovered another layer of personality which I had not been aware of, I began to be interested in the figures of the layer and induce them to my works. When a unit or multiple units complete a perfect structure or form, my jewelry comes to life.” «

« My recent works comprise sculptural units in which steel wire is used as basic material. As the basic structure is needed to construct a building, numerous layers consist of a form in my works. As I discovered another layer of personality which I had not been aware of, I began to be interested in the figures of the layer and induce them to my works. When a unit or multiple units complete a perfect structure or form, my jewelry becomes powerful and comes to life.
Human body is the perfect space to install my jewelry on. Only when my works, the body ornaments, get perfectly installed on the wearer, emotional and structural rapport starts with the wearer.
As in architecture, the site and scale of my work play an important role as well. As people imagine building an ideal house of their own, I also pursue building my house of jewelry (body architecture) on human body, too. »
