The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Learn How to Get into Galleries and Sell Your Art

Attend the Portland "Starving" to Successful workshop for Free (a $59 value)

Over the last several weeks, I have sent you invitations to attend my "Starving" to Successful workshop in Portland. The workshop is next Monday evening, and as we near the date I wanted to extend a special invitation to you to attend this comprehensive art career workshop for free.

During the presentation, I am going to share with you concrete step you can take to prepare yourself and your artwork for gallery representation. 

You will learn:

  • how much work you need to have ready before approaching galleries
  • how to create a consistent body of work and how to organize it
  • how to price your art,
  • how to format your portfolio.
  • how to build your resume

I will also help you determine the best markets for your art - choose the most appropriate galleries for your work in the market, and how to get your portfolio into the hands of a gallery decision-maker.

And much more.

This invitation to attend for free is limited to the first 30 people who respond, so if you can commit to come, please email me right away. There is no catch or hidden fee. 

Free admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve your space, simply email me directly at jason@xanadugallery.com. Please, only email me to register if you are sure you will be able to attend. While there is no cost for admission, space is limited, so please email me at your earliest convenience.
