The Artwork

100+ Musings is the result of one artist’s question to herself. In the winter of 2020, after the world had changed before our eyes, jewelry artist and curator Barbara Cohen asked herself “How can I do good with my work?”

Over the course of her lengthy career, Barbara has amassed a great collection of materials. From the remains of bicycle tires, cocoons, cement tiles, fossils and more the artist has created 100+ ‘musings’ which she has donated to the CCBC. These small scale – sculptural wall hangings are intended to be unexpected surprises among more obvious decorative elements in one's home. Designed in Barbara’s signature quirky and eclectic, the musings will be on view and for purchase in December 2021 at the Craft Council of BC shop and gallery on Granville Island.

The Artist

Montreal born artist Barbara Cohen attended Sheridan College School of Design in Ontario where she majored in textiles. In 1979 she moved to Vancouver and eventually transitioned to focus on body ornament. Creating jewelry offered an intimacy and commitment to refinement that spoke to her sensibilities. Using materials out of context is a consistent aspect of her work. She has been widely exhibited and published both nationally and internationally, won awards and is included in the permanent collection in the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
