It can demand attention, be an invitation to play, be filled with tears and secrets - and is to be worn for one day or for ever - THE RING.

THE RING - the most common piece of jewellery can be full of meaning, a personal statement sometimes showing itself as a technical miracle or purely decorative and beautiful. It can demand attention, be an invitation to play, be filled with tears and secrets - and is to be worn for one day or for ever.

In homage to the ring Galleri Hnoss has invited all the jewellery artists exhibited in the gallery since the start in 1997 to produce one ring each. The result is now to be seen in the exhibition THE RING - jewel forever. The show consisting of over one hundred rings is a vibrant collection of different expressions, thoughts and forms.


Opening: Friday 9/9 at 18:00

Opening hours:
Wednesday-Thursday 12:00-17:00
Friday-Sunday 12:00-16:00

In connection with the exhibition on September 9 we are also arranging a seminar; The Ring - jewel forever. The theme is the ring seen from different perspectives. We are very proud to announce the speakers: Anna Schetelich from Galerie Oona, Germany, Professor Otto Kunzli, Germany, and Manuel Vilhena, jewellery artist from Portugal. Moderator is Love Jönsson, crafts critic and guest lecturer at HDK, University of Gothenburg. The seminar is a collaboration between Galleri Hnoss and the Department of Jewellery Art at HDK, with support from Gothenburg Crafts Association, Estrid Ericsson's Foundation, Wilhelm and Martina Lundgren Fund, and the family Wikanders Foundation.
With the exhibition The ring- jewel forever Galleri Hnoss will also manifest that our activities will change from now on. After this event we will leave our physical gallery and work in other ways in the future.
