5th February: last day for Gaffa (Sydney) ‘mmmmm … EXHIBITION‘ [link] (dates on Gaffa website are different to the Facebook / home exhibition page); “Is a piece of jewellery an art form?  Is a piece of wearable art equal to jewellery?  Can a piece of art express the jewellery as a concept and it is not a piece of jewellery at all?  Jewellery is not only about wearability, design and physical value.  Jewellery may be objects with in-depth concepts and message in it.  They may also be a concept which is transformed under various forms.

8-12th February: RMIT Master Class with Julie Blyfield, Making it … Object Design for Jewellers [link]; “Julie Blyfield, well known contemporary jeweller and object maker, will guide participants in this Master Class towards developing an understanding of the object design process, from sketching and model making to translation into a three-dimensional object or series of objects. Participants will then explore and experiment with different media and methods of fabrication to produce one of their designs.

9th February: last day for Studio 20/17, Mary Hackett ‘The Conduit‘ [link]; “Conduit is an exhibition of work by metalsmith Mary Hackett that explores the relationship between hand, metal, motion and form.

12th February: Studio 20/17 ‘Mixquisite‘, group exhibition [link]; “The collective is made up of six jewellers, who all work directly within the jewellery community in South Australia – Hannah Carlyle, Peta Kruger and Alice Potter at the Jam Factory Craft and Design centre, Lisa Furno and Kelly Jonasson at Gray Street Workshop, and Lauren Simeoni of the celebrated glass and jewellery studio Gate 8. Each of the six jewellers in this group have contributed at least one thing to every piece in this show, concluding in 36 pieces collectively assembled by all twelve hands. The final result could be wonderfully bold and colourful, or muted with a soft sensibility.

16th February: Northcity4, ‘Once More With Love‘ [link]; not just the exhibition (which I’m excited about seeing), but a conversation/seminar too, and a workshop; until 2nd March

plan ahead:

7th March – 27th April: Craft, ‘Signature Style‘ [link]; “Signature Style is a major group exhibition exploring models of collaborative practice in contemporary jewellery. Featuring the work of some of Melbourne’s most exciting artists and jewellery practitioners Signature Style will be a significant addition to the emerging discourse around collaboration and contemporary craft. Collaboration poses a very different method of working – by its very nature, collaboration eschews individual artistic identity in favour of some kind of ‘third’ position.Signature Style will examine new methodologies of working and ‘work’, thinking through the potentials of collaboration within craft and design.
