The jewellery team at Hong Kong Baptist University have been busy setting up the exhibition.
Why Jewellery? 2 is installed and ready for viewing. If you are in Hong Kong please visit!
Saturday 1 July is the last day to see Why Jewellery 2 in Brisbane! So if you haven't been to see it yet, you are running out of time. We have received lots of wonderful feedback, it is great to hear that the exhibition is starting conversations.
If you miss seeing the exhibition in Brisbane your next and final chance will be in Hong Kong later in the year!
Of course our website has images, but we all know it makes a difference seeing jewellery in the flesh.
We were really fortunate to have photographer Craig Stewart at the opening to capture the excitement. Craig took all of the photos in this posting.
We have received enquiries about purchasing works. The exhibition isn't a selling exhibition, but, we can pass on enquiries to the artists. Some artists may have similar works available and others may be happy to sell to you provided you can wait until the exhibition closes in Hong Kong.
After a marathon effort the exhibition is installed and ready for the public!
Marathon is a slight exaggeration, we had a great team of enthusiastic helpers.
It was exciting to unpack the works from Hong Kong and to look for relationships between all of the works to plan the install.
The opening is on Wednesday 14 June 6-8 pm. We hope you'll join us!
We are pleased to announce that the exhibition will open in the Webb Gallery at QCA soon. It will be interesting to see the works installed again in a different venue. No doubt new discussions will arise.
If you are in or around Brisbane please join us on Friday 18 September 6-8pm for the opening.
