25 August 2017 - 30 January 2018

Dovilė Žydelienė. Fastener

Aim of this exhibition is to reveal the beauty of amber, also oftenly refered to as „The Gold of the Baltic“. Goldsmith today, rarely has a chance to work with amber. More often, it is precious metals, diamonds, and other gems. Amber was somehow pushed into the shadow and became a common raw material for the folk artists and those who work with amber only. This is why this exhibition is a chance for us – goldsmiths – to discover amber anew. 

Exhibition is composed of more than 50 objects made of amber paired with gold, silver, enamel, diamonds and a few non-traditional materials such as mammoth or morse tusks, shell, iron, or wood. Exhibition is involving due to its variety that reflects the participating authors‘ perspective on such a traditional yet „unknown“ material as amber. Visitors have a chance to see a rather wide stylistic range – starting with functional adornments and ending with concepts based on philosophical contemplations. 

Exhibition “Goldsmith Meets Amber” invites you to have a fresh and very personal look at amber.
