Pocket Guide to New Zealand Jewelry

June 12 – October 23, 2011
at Racine Art Museum

Pocket Guide to New Zealand Jewelry is an engaging survey of contemporary jewelry made by artists intimately connected to a country that is both socially and culturally similar to and different from the United States. Organized by Velvet da Vinci Gallery and curated by New Zealand art historian, Damian Skinner, Pocket Guide underscores the aesthetic, material and theoretical elements that give New Zealand jewelry its distinctive flavor. The sixteen jewelers whose works are included in this exhibition play with a wide range of media and varied subject matter.
