Intro
In April of 2010 the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull began a series of explosive eruptions of ash which disrupted air travel and the environment. Hundreds were evacuated and thousands watched as huge ash plumes erupted 8 kilometers into the sky for days on end. Across the globe in Mexico City, the jewelry symposium Walking the Gray Area was coming to an end. Eyjafjallajökull stranded 18 jewelers who had attended the event in Mexico City. Under That Cloud is their response to these unexpected days spent there.
Velvet da Vinci in San Francisco presents as part of its 20th Anniversary Series of Exhibitions:
UNDER THAT CLOUD: An exhibition of jewelry inspired by 18 artists stranded in Mexico City under the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud, curated by Jo Bloxham.
