Exhibition Call Out:
You are invited to participate in ‘Suspended in Green’.
Now in its third and final year, the ‘Suspended’ exhibitions seek to explore the world of jewelry as it is NOW.
This is a call out for jewelry that explores GREEN, in all its facets.

Green: it's just a color, yet it can also stand for so much more.
It’s the color of money, of envy and of inexperience.
It can stand for ethical products, the environment, symbolize fertility and nature.
We talk about green shamrocks for luck, the green eyed monster, and green fingers. You can give someone the green light, be a greenhorn or be part of the green revolution.

‘Suspended in Green’ seeks out jewelry which explores these themes and ideas, through precious and non-precious materials.
The result will be a juxtaposition of jewelers, themes and styles, all suspended from the gallery’s ceiling, which will invite the viewer to engage and interact with the work.

This year we are adding an additional element to the suspended show.
Each selected artist will show one Gallery/Museum piece, which can be sold for any price -
as well as a series (of between 3 and 10) ‘Shop’ pieces, which must have a retail price of €40 each.

These ‘Shop’ pieces MUST be directly related to the Gallery/Museum piece submitted.
