As a part of Radiant Pavilion - Melbourne Contemporary Jewellery and Object Biennial 2017, Bini Gallery will be featuring an exhibition documenting the meeting of a group of artists, brought together to work in the Penland studios in the mountains of North Carolina. As a group they shared the intimate ‘concerns’ of their practice, and each has created a small suite of works that interprets the ‘concern’ of another group member.

The pieces begun during their 2016 Winter Residency at Penland were finished in studios across the United States as well as in Australia and Denmark, where this diverse group of jewelry artists call home.
