International Jewelry - based on Readymades

A couple months ago, Putte H. Dal who is a curator of the Telemark Art Center in Skien, Norway, invited me to participate in an exhibition called, International Jewelry - Based on Readymades. 10 internationally renowned jewelry artists are participating in this exhibition. Even though I haven't met anyone yet, I am so honored to join them in this exhibition. : ) Hope I will have a chance to meet them in the future.

The exhibition just started last Thursday, 16th of February, 2012 and will be up until the 31st of March 2012. Since this is my first show in Norway, I am so excited it. Unfortunately, I am not able to go see the show in person. If you are around the area, please check this out for me.

For further information, on the 23rd of February, the curator will be in the gallery to guide the audience through the exhibition. It is part of an organized gallery tour. In the evening, Ingjerd Hanevold, jewelry artist and professor at the National College of Art and Design in Oslo, will give a lecture about "Jewelry art through history and as part of the art scene".
