Joining the likes of New York’s Metropolitan Museum and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will open a comprehensive exhibition of contemporary jewelry on October 1st, 2016. Beyond Bling showcases an extraordinary assemblage of contemporary studio jewelry from the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The exhibition, which features a selection of 50 works from the gift of over 300 pieces from collector Lois Boardman, explores the use of nontraditional materials and techniques, the ways jewelry can communicate personal or political messages, and the medium’s potential to shock and delight.
We are delighted and proud that many of our artists are in the collection including SONDRA SHERMAN, whose 2010 brooch Flowers and Still Life is pictured above.
In the collection you can also find works by these artists we represent:
GIAMPAOLO BABETTO Italy
