INNOVATIVE EXHIBITION OF CONTEMPORARY DUTCH JEWELRY COMES TO MONTCLAIR, NJ

Gallery Loupe Hosts "Golden Clogs, Dutch Mountains" --Touring Exhibition Curated by Artist, Andrea Wagner; Featuring the work of 11 emerging artists from the Netherlands.


The experimental and creative mentality of artists in the "Lowlands" will be evident when "Golden Clogs, Dutch Mountains" arrives at Gallery Loupe in Montclair, N.J.
This exhibition, which is sponsored by the Mondriaan Foundation, Amsterdam and the Consulate General of the NL and NY, began its international tour in March '07.

The show features avante-garde, one-of-a-kind studio jewelry from a group of 11 leading artists that have emerged from the Netherlands over the past decade. 

"What is the recipe that makes contemporary jewelry form this small country special?" asks Curator Andrea Wagner. "There seems to be a kind of Dutch tradition of integrating diverse, contrary disciplines. This openness to mixing materials and techniques and the uncommon approaches taken in integrating them into a whole are extensions of a mindset that is extremely liberal and not comfortable with restrictions."
