30 May – 5 July 2009

Marian Hosking: Jewellery is the third exhibition in Object’s widely applauded Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft exhibition series which celebrates the achievements of senior craft practitioners. With a career spanning almost 40 years, Hosking is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary jewellers and silversmiths.

Hosking has exhibited both nationally and internationally and is represented in numerous collections. Working almost exclusively with silver, her work is concerned with rich surface patterns and textures.

This reflects her particular concerns for the natural environment, allowing her to echo the forms and motifs found in nature. Her Living Treasures exhibition will include a large scale sculptural work along with a collection of new vessels and jewellery pieces.

Marian Hosking: Jewellery is an object touring exhibition and is part of the Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft series.

To be opened by Tracey Callinan, Executive Officer, Arts OutWest.
