‘The Ring’ @ Studio Ingot

6 10 2009

Studio Ingot has been quiet on the exhibition front this year, so I was pleasantly surprised to see they have ‘The Ring‘ exhibition during most of October.

I popped in on the weekend to see it and was very impressed with the exhibition design – it must have taken the curators a long time to set up the groupings, and I like the way the artist / title are displayed using small simple but so effective line-drawing maps.

There are some lovely pieces. In fact, the Katherine Bowman onyx gorgeousness is here, which I naturally tried on; I thought I may go back, but as I spent lots on sartorial splendour the next day I’m not so sure now.

It seems I have been opening up to the glory of green lately (why, I even bought a bright green cardigan just last week); it does feel a little out of character, but is perhaps part of a larger phenomenon, as many of the pieces featuring green had already been snapped up…

Exhibition media states: “over 100 rings, by forty artists“. When I visited a number had already been sold and taken home – so be fast!
