Jewellery and Silversmithing Exhibition Appears ‘out of thin AIR’

‘out of thin AIR’ is the culmination of a nine month Jewellery & Silversmithing residency at Birmingham City University’s School of Jewellery.

The exhibition provides a fascinating insight into the diverse range of creative processes each of the Artist-in-Residents (AIRs) explores before reaching a finished piece of work. Taking place at the School of Jewellery from Monday 30th April until Friday 18th May this is a show not to be missed.

The exhibition features work from: Frank Jichang Chai, Jemma Daniels, Emily Richard, Stephanie Arm, Jenny Laidlaw, LiChu Wu, Emily Bullock, Yi Liu, Katherine Richmond, Grace Page, Laura Golbourne, Hannah Fewtrell-Bolton and Rhonda Dwyer.

Jo Pond the AIR co-ordinator said ‘Having the Artists-in-Residence on board enables our students to observe the drive and commitment essential for working towards individual deadlines and developing new work.

The AIRs assist our academic staff on a cross-section of Modules, being a great support and offering the School an engaging and direct link between academia and current practice.

The 2011/12 Residency cohort is a motivated and diverse community of makers whose exhibition will be a delight to host.’

The exhibition is on at the School of Jewellery, Vittoria Street, Birmingham, B1-3PA and runs from the 30th April – 18th May.
