At the Schmuck exhibition in Munich Paul Derrez was presented with a Herbert Hofmann Award for his DOT brooches.
‘Optimism, cheerfulness and happiness are qualities which we need most urgently in our times. In Paul Derrez’s brooches the jury of the Herbert Hofmann Award sees these qualities combined. The coloured plastic elements are joined in a way that gives them freshness and authenticity. Traditional values of creating jewellery are to be recognized in the careful production and the considered allocation of the colours bestowing on the material an additional relevance and expressiveness’.

KunstRai 2015 will be held from 27 to 31 May in the Amstelhal at the Rai in Amsterdam. At stand 27 Galerie Ra will be exhibiting a selection of jewellery and vessels, plus the wall installation 100 Necklaces worn by an Art Fair Booth by Manon van Kouswijk. Galerie Ra will remain open during the fair.

Art Jewelry Forum, or AJF, is a vibrant website full of information about contemporary jewellery and jewellery makers. It includes interviews with artists such as Sigurd Bronger and Karin Herwegh, relating to their recent exhibitions in Ra.
