Current Exhibition
Material Revelation
In The Galleries April 25, 2024 through July 6, 2024

Material Revelation explores the work of 20 Contemporary Art Jewelers using an array of non-traditional materials such as textiles, dirt, recycled plastic, tin cans, etc. Raising questions such as, "What is Jewelry?" and "What is it made of?"

As a wearable work of art, each of the art jewelry pieces featured in Material Revelation questions preciousness, wearability, form, and style while exploring social and environmental issues through experimentation, and storytelling. Contemporary Art Jewelry as a form of communication takes the viewer and wearer to a new perspective of what jewelry can be.
