Included with your ticket purchase is this exciting special exhibition featuring work by leaders in the American Studio Jewelry Movement, including many pieces that have never before been seen by the public.
This exhibition does not attempt to present a comprehensive examination of contemporary American Studio Jewelry, but rather a glimpse into the field and a look at some of the leading figures who helped nurture and continue to influence today's studio jewelers.
Curated by Autumn Brown
Area Coordinator & Instructor of Metals/Jewelry,

The show organizers wish to thank Ms. Autumn Brown for her tireless efforts in curating this outstanding exhibition.
Not only will visitors see rare and interesting examples of American Studio Jewelry, as an added treat, Ms. Brown is binging her mobile studio and gallery space the "Blue Onion Bus," a 1985 International bus she has renovated to become a vehicle for educating people about the metal arts.
During this exhibition she will demonstrate some of the techniques employed by the jewelry artists whose work will be on display.
