HOME Exhibition – Introducing the Participants…

We’ve had fantastic feedback from the public about our ‘Home’ Exhibition and it has been a real pleasure to work in partnership with convoi exceptionnel to created this exchange project.

The exhibition showcases the work of 9 Irish Art Jewellers alongside 9 Finnish Art Jewellers. Each jeweller has made a piece based on the theme of ‘Home’, the work was exhibited in Taidebunkkeri, Imatra,Finland; 4th to 30th August and in Belfast, Ireland; 1st to 31st October 2015.

The images below give an insight into each of the participants and the pieces they created. Click on each of the images and scroll down for descriptions/details of the makers.

HOME Exhibition opening at Space CRAFT, Belfast.

Some photos of our opening night on Thursday. With special thanks to Rachel Dickson, (Course Director of Contemporary Applied Arts at the Belfast School of Art) for officially opening the exhibition. We will feature some more information on each of the jewellers involved during the month of the exhibition.

This is an art jewellery exchange exhibition between Convoi Exceptionnel (Finland) and Art Jewellery Network (Ireland).
The project explores the theme of ‘Home’. What makes you feel like home? Is home for you a place, a state of mind, a memory? How does nationality effect these feelings? Every answer is different – the exhibition will present 18 point of views by the means of jewellery art.
