The Art of Adornment exhibition online

New images of the exhibition The Art of Adornment at the Hunterdon Art Museum in New Jersey are now online. If you're not in the New York area this June-September, the work of each of the thirteen artists can be seen on ArtLog and ArtSlant. Each of the artists is working with innovative combinations of traditional and contemporary materials.

Kiwon Wang's exquisite paper and pearl constructions (above) have always fascinated me with their strange beauty.

The coral reef is represented in uniquely effective materials in Tina Rath's work (below).

The work of Jill Baker-Gower (below) is influenced by Victorian jewellery forms as well as contemporary ideas about beauty.

My brooch Foggy Day in Parkville, a landscape informed by the Impressionist tradition and constructed of enameled copper, sterling silver, bouncy balls, labradorite and felted wool, is also featured in the exhibition.

The Art of Adornment opens this Sunday (2-4pm) and runs until 18 September.
