    Group shows 2014: Precious Obsession – A contemporary jewellery pop-up event

    Posted by Angela & filed under Exhibitions, Group Shows, News-Blog.

    Three trained artist jewellers from Cape Town teamed together to stage the first ever pop-up event to showcase contemporary South African art jewellery at Truth Cafe in Buitenkant Street, Cape Town, on 20 November 2014.

    Aiming to build awareness and recognition for this niche genre of art, the Precious Obsession event provided a relaxed and sociable atmosphere for visitors to engage with the 20 selected artists and their work, learning about the various defining aspects of contemporary art jewellery (such as conceptual content, critical commentary on numerous matters and artistic expression).

    The evening drew a big crowd and proved enough of a success to merit further renditions in the near future.
