Women's Tales: Four Leading Israeli Jewelers

April 23, 2010-November 12, 2010

Location: Ticho House

Artist: Bianca Eshel-Gershuni, Vered Kaminski, Esther Knobel, Deganit Stern Schocken

Curator: Alex Ward

The jewelry artists featured in this exhibition - Bianca Eshel-Gershuni, Vered Kaminski, Esther Knobel, and Deganit Stern Schocken - have chosen jewelry as an appropriate medium for personal comment. Although all sought inspiration in their local surroundings as well as in their personal life, these four artists have developed very distinctive styles. While Eshel-Gershuni and Knobel use figurative imagery to relay their personal experiences and memories, the works of Kaminski and Stern Schocken are more abstract in form and focus on the process. Following singular journeys of self-discovery, these four women artists have made major contributions to the field of avant-garde jewelry making in Israel. This exhibition - presented in Israel after traveling to several venues across the Jerusalem, and the Racine Art Museum (RAM) in Wisconsin.
