Geography, Art Jewelry Forum's first exhibition of contemporary jewelry was a featured show at the 40th annual SNAG conference in Seattle, Washington. The 80 page exhibition catalog features work represented by 30 international galleries.
The pieces by 53 artists featured in Geography reflect the global nature of the contemporary jewelry field and the different ways jewelers react to their environment. This can be the use of indigenous materials such as stone and wood or an urban recycling of found objects that are the product of global trade. The personal resonance of these materials reflects how powerful a sense of place remains. Some of the jewelry relates to other cultures, gone or drastically changed, and demonstrates that ideas of place are constantly changing.

The exhibition is a celebration of the amazing variety of the natural world and humanity’s part in it, and proves that contemporary jewelry continues to have a singular ability to construct culture and place even in a rapidly changing and increasingly interconnected world.

The catalog includes essays by Valeria Vallarta Siemelink, Christina Miller and Ted White.
