"RESONANCE"

I am pleased to announce "Resonance", a jewellery exhibition showcasing 42 pieces of jewellery and sculptures created by 26 jewelers (myself included) who either teach at or have been students at the Ecole de Joaillerie de Montreal.  Represented in the show are Pilar Agueci, Gustavo Estrada, Monique Giroux, Camille Grenon, Émilie Guay-Charpentier, Christine Larochelle, Lynn Légaré, Marie-Eve Martin, Julie Mineau, Daniel Moisan, Pierre-Yves Paquette, Francesc Peich, Maxime Proulx, Lidia Raymond, France Roy, Antonio Serafino, Catherine Villeneuve, Denys Michaud, Anick Dusseault, Claudia Gravel, Catherine Lachapelle, Sylvie Langlois, Hélène Limoges, Angela Marzinotto and Garrett Johnson.

The exhibition will be held at the Canadian Guild of Crafts located at 1460-B, Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, just a few steps from the Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibition will run from October 1 to October 31st, 2015.  The opening on October 1st is from 5pm to 7pm.  After that, the Guilds hours are 10 am- 6 pm Tuesday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm Saturday, closed Sunday and Monday.   If you are in the area, please do go and take look!

For me personally, this exhibition provided the opportunity to work collaboratively with the Maestro, Antonio Serafino, in the design and creation of a gorgeous jewellery set including a necklace, earrings and a ring.  While the work was time consuming and intense, the results are beyond my expectations! I look forward to sharing these pieces with you!
