This coming Monday, Melanie and I will be installing Western Australian artist Felicity Peters work for her exhibition ‘Jestem-I am’.

Her work has recently been acquired by the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) and is featured in seventeen Australian, USA and UK books plus numerous reviews in Australia and overseas. Felicity was the first jeweller to be awarded one of two Creative Development Fellowships awarded by the Western Australian Department of Culture and the Arts. This $60,000 award enabled her to work towards a solo exhibition at the prestigiousLondon jewellery gallery Lesley Craze Gallery in February 2010. A workshop in granulation in theUSA and her CAD designed work were also part of this award.
This exhibition is the first time that Felicity has had a solo show in the Eastern States since 1984. This event promises very exciting and unique work from one ofAustralia’s leading jewellers.
