This is a copy of the announcement that the Preziosa Young exhibition, organized by Le Arti Orafe in Florence, as been cancelled this year. CHE PALLE. It surprises me that their committee couldn’t find at least eight young artists with work worthy enough… not even eight! This is truly unfortunate because this is one of the few events of its kind, and very unique to Italy and the contemporary jewelry scene here… not to mention the personal heartache I have, having applied myself. I only waited a year for this, and have seen the last two installments personally. Maybe next year.

October 5th was the opening reception of Preziosa Young, 2011 at Florence’s Museo della Specola – Tribuna Galileo. Contemporary jewelry school and academy, Le Arti Orafe, has been organizing this event since 2005 in effort to promote young, emerging artists in the field to showcase new research-based work. This year, Japanese artist, Mari Ishikawa, was awarded a solo exhibition alongside  select work from 8 other international artists: Dana Hakim (Italy), Sam Hamilton (Ireland), Hanna Hedman (Sweden), Lisa Juen (China), Heejoo Kim (South Korea), Seul-Gi Kwon (South Korea), Marie Pendariès (Spain), Elena Ruebel (Germany). I’d tell you to go see the show in Florence, but it wrapped the 23rd of October. I believe most of the show will move to the Fiera inorghenta Europa in Munich sometime in 2012. I plan to write more about all this soon.
