Okay I know this is very late....even appalling late but I have been flat stick and this is the first chance I have had to record this event in my blog. Naughty really considering I was lucky enough to be evolved in this great exhibition with the clever cats at Studio 2017 June this year. Read their blurb below and check out the the number of great artists included in this show. I was in excellent company.
The Year was 2006
2006. It was a common year that started on a Sunday. John Howard was PM and Pluto was no longer classified as a planet. It is often bandied about that art is a reflection of our society; intrigued, we set out to find what 2006 might have looked like in terms of contemporary jewellery. 100 jewellers from across the globe have been invited to present one piece of jewellery they made 6 years ago. Presented as a salon hang, this exhibition will showcase an incredibly diverse array of jewellery and will give an overall snapshot of what these jewellers were thinking, making and the materials they were using all those years ago in 2006.
