Join curator Lexie Owen and artist Kari Woo for a facilitated discussion of the amazing work in the Unexpected exhibition!
UNEXPECTED explores the strange and sometimes discordant elements that make the viewing, wearing, and making of Contemporary Jewellery an enjoyable endeavor.
The unexpected and Contemporary Art Jewellery are by no means strange bedfellows- viewers and wearers of Contemporary Jewellery often seek out our discipline because it is unusual and extra-ordinary. The unusual, and unusual elements and materials, have become de rigueur in a creative world that continues to embrace post-disciplinary art practices which move beyond medium centered approaches to making.
The participating artists are:
Lydia Buxton, Melissa Cameron, Bridget Catchpole, Barbara Cohen, Jennifer Crupi, Yoshie Hattori, Kyri Hinkleman, Holland Houdek, Karin Jones, Joshua Kosker, Matt Lambert, Andy Lowrie, Jacqueline Lung, Brooke Marks-Swanson, Sharon Massey, Louise Perrone. Lissy Selvius, Jina Seo, Aric Verrastro, Kari Woo, Lawrence Woodford.
