From November 2 to 5, 2017, Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h participates in SOFA Chicago. We invite you to visit us in our booth 603 and see our latest collection, which includes works by 48 jewellery artists from Canada, the United States, the Netherlands, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, South Korea, Sweden and Switzerland.
The Octopus Has Three Hearts, introducing the recent work by three renowned artists in contemporary jewellery, Attai Chen, Märta Mattsson and Carina Shoshtary, presented at the gallery last October, will travel to the art fair. A unique chance to discover their amazing and creative pieces.
On Friday, November 3rd, Anne-Sophie Vallée has been invited to speak the development of the innovative jewellery she creates, by the Society of North American Goldsmiths as part of the SNAG emerging artists 2017.
Anne-Sophie’s first exposure to metalsmithing was in 2008 in Taxco, Mexico, in the metal department of UNAM (Universidad Autónoma de Mexíco). She obtained a collegial diploma in Craft with focus on jewellery from Cégep du Vieux-Montréal in partnership with École de joaillerie de Montréal in 2011. She is a recent graduate from NSCAD University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, and holds a BFA with major in Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing. Her work was selected as the winner of L.A Pai Gallery’s 13th National student jewellery competition in Canada. She was an artist-in-residence at the Harbourfront Center, Toronto, in 2016. Now a Halifax-based artist, Vallée has exhibited work in Canada, the United States and Europe. She took part in Espace habité/Inhabited space, an exhibition curated by Noel Guyomarc’h and Stéphane Blackburn presented in Paris and in Barcelona in 2017.
Reminiscence: A 45 Year Journey in the World of Contemporary Jewelry
On Friday, Nov 3rd, from 2 - 3 pm, in the Lecture Room A, Montreal jewelry artist Janis Kerman will discuss her journey through the contemporary jewelry world. Kerman’s work is based on geometric shapes – their inherent strength, applicability, and timelessness.
Following the lecture will be a signing of her recent book, Reminiscence: A 45 Year Journey in the World of Contemporary Jewelry at the Option Art booth 605.
Author, Noel Guyomarc'h, in collaboration with Stephane Blackburn, is glad to have participated in this project.
