"The Maker’s Mark includes works from emerging and established women artists who carry the torch for contemporary art jewellery, a practice traditionally dominated by men. Some of the exhibiting artists are known internationally for their contributions to the art jewellery world while others are just beginning to leave their mark, but all deserve to be recognized in their home regions and beyond."
Featuring the works of:
Morgan Asoyuf Carmel Boerner Bridget Catchpole Jesse Gray Yoshie Hattori Jamie Kroeger Jan Smith
curated by Clarissa Long
"In jewellery, the maker’s mark is the initials, name, or other symbol that creators stamp into the metal of their work. It is a trademark, or an artist signature, that speaks to the authenticity of output by a certain maker. Each stamp must be unique and identifiable. While not all art jewellers stamp their work, their signature can be seen in the work itself, through recognizable styles, materials or processes. Many of the artists in this exhibition work with specialized materials, use found objects, take influence from nature or their surrounding environments and create messages around current issues that demand critical thought. Each artist does so in a way that is purely distinguishable from one another—a way marked by the maker’s hands. The Maker’s Mark examines the diversity of marks local women artists make in contemporary art jewellery and the impact this continues to have on the history of the medium."
