Belfast School of Art – End of Year Show 2016

Ulster University – Belfast School of Art – End of Year Show 2016

Congratulations to the graduates from the Ulster University in Belfast! If you missed this year’s graduate show check out the images below to see the new emerging talent. The show looked great in the new spaces, a lovely diverse range this year by Silversmithing and Jewellery from product jewellery to conceptual/video work.

It was particularly interesting to see how Claire Skelton‘s work has developed as she previously took part in our ‘Home’ Exhibition. Claire’s work also includes a video exploring the physical interaction between the wearer and her pieces adding another dimension to her collection. It was brilliant to discover jewellery spread through to the ceramics department this year, see Melyssa Shannon‘s wearable sculptures below.

Graduates: BA (Hons) Contemporary Applied Arts Jewellery & Silversmithing: Claire Skelton, Alena McKeown, Michelle Redmond, Laura Gillespie, Lauren Millar, Michaella Donnelly, Sarah Fleming, Gemma McCutcheon, Sarah Heron.

 MFA Multi-disciplinary Design: Jolene Doherty.

BA (Hons) Contemporary Applied Arts Ceramics: Melyssa Shannon.

Belfast School of Art – End of Year Show 2015

The last ever Orpheus Jewellery & Silversmithing Graduates.

Sadly, despite the #SaveTheOrpheus Campaign the lovely 1932 building by Samuel Stevenson will be demolished soon. This made for quite a nostalgic visit to the degree show this year. It is truly a pity that yet another historic building will be destroyed in Belfast despite much public objection. We wish this years graduates all the best in their new adventures and best of luck to the current jewellery department with their big move.

Below is a little insight into Jewellery and Silversmithing graduates. A very varied range of materials and influences were represented with a mixture of object based work, conceptual jewellery as well as wearable pieces.

New project: ‘Home’

An art jewellery exchange exhibition between Convoi Exceptionnel (Finland) and Art Jewellery Network (Ireland).

We have been working together with the amazing Convoi Eceptionnel  to create an international exchange exhibition project for art jewellers based in Ireland and Finland. 12 jewellery artists from each country will be selected to exhibit their work in the two countries.

Applications are invited from artists who have studied in, living in, working in or originally from Finland or Ireland. The work of selected artists will be exhibited in Finland during August and during Ireland in October.
