TWO WAYS

2 May – 2 June 2013

This year JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design celebrates its 40th birthday so it seemed fitting to join in the celebrations and reflect on the connection that has developed over time between JamFactory and Gray Street Workshop.

TWO WAYS is an exhibition of new work by selected artists that are alumni
of both Gray Street Workshop and the Metal Design Studio, JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design.

Gray Street Workshop and JamFactory each offer unique, different and complimentary career development and professional opportunities for aspiring, emerging and established artists in the discipline of contemporary jewellery and object design.

TWO WAYS provides insight into the various paths an artist can take armed with the experiences, support and encouragement offered by JamFactory
and Gray Street Workshop.

Participating in the show are alumni Kath Inglis, Katrina Freene, Lauren Simeoni, Sun-Woong Bang, Meghann Jones and Leonie Westbrook.

On show will be works incorporating porcelain, PVC, found materials and Monel, works made using traditional jewellery techniques sit along side works made using the CAD design process, 3D laser printer and toaster oven. Jewellery, objects, images and text recount personal journeys and adventures at the bench and around the world… no two exhibitors have travelled the same career path…everyone has taken their own way.

JamFactory’s Chief Executive Officer, Brian Parkes, will open the exhibition at 6pm on Thursday 2 May. The exhibition runs until Sunday 2 June.

On Friday 10 May at 5.30 – 7pm the workshop will host the second scheduled Future Design Friday, an open studio and series of informal talks on the practice of contemporary jewellery in Adelaide.

Fox Creek wines proudly sponsors Gray Street Workshop’s exhibition program.
