Innovation and Craftsmanship in Metal:  Jewelry Artists of Québec is a month long exhibition of some of Québec’s most critically acclaimed jewelry artists.  Debuting in its first year at Aaron Faber Gallery, Jewelry Artists of Québec  offers both trade and consumers a glimpse of  highly original works of jewelry artistry using precious and semi-precious stones and metals.  The fourteen participating Québecois artists have redefined conventional approaches to jewelry design, with each participant’s definition quite different from another. 

While Claudio Pino’s kinetic movement rings are painstakingly designed to do more than just adorn a finger, Matthieu Cheminée bestows young, fresh life to old, discarded jewelry in a recycled kaleidoscope of sculptural virtuosity.  As Janis Kerman entices us to see the beauty in opposites and asymmetrical balance, Laurie Dansereau invites us to become one with nature as her floral necklaces garnish décolletages in a splendor of anthers and petals in sterling silver and exotic woods.  And as Jean-Pierre Gauvreau’s rings captures the grand pursuits of the most genius architects, Pierre-Yves Paquette uses the ancient art of mokume gane to harmonize various hues of gold and silver into a visually stunning crescendo.

The Exhibition opens to the public on Friday, May 4, 2012 and continues through May 26, 2012.  A private reception hosted by the Jewelry Artists of Québec will be held at Aaron Faber Gallery the evening of Thursday, May 3rd.  The general public will be able to view and purchase from the featured collections daily, with special requests available through Aaron Faber Gallery after the exhibition concludes.
