ALCHIMIA: AN ANTHOLOGY
May 1-July 11, 2015
BOSTON, MA The Society of Arts and Crafts presents Alchimia: an Anthology, a special exhibition in partnership with Alchimia School of Contemporary Jewelry in Florence, Italy.
Alchimia: an Anthology features work of current and former faculty of the world-renowned jewelry program, complemented by a juried selection of pieces by alumni and final semester students. The exhibition highlights technical skill and creativity, and shows a breadth of materials and processes realized to form masterful pieces. The exhibition gives visitors an opportunity to support student work and see the way faculty inspires new generations of makers.
The exhibition coincides with the annual Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) conference, which will be held in Boston during May 20-23, 2015.
Works by the following faculty will be shown:
Giampaolo Babetto, Peter Bauhuis, Paolo Bernardoni, Manfred Bischoff, Daniela Boieri, Doris Maninger, Lucia Massei, Ruudt Peters (Keynote Speaker at SNAG Conference), Marzia Rossi, and Manuel Vilhena.
Join us for a reception on Thursday May 21 from 6-8 pm at The Society of Arts and Crafts, 175 Newbury Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02116.
Exhibited works are available for purchase, with proceeds to the artists and to support the Society of Arts and Craft’s mission to encourage the creation, collection, and promotion of the work of contemporary craft artists and to advance public appreciation of fine craft.
