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.

Artful summer show. You are warmly invited to the Private View evening. This is taking place at two close-by sites on Friday 24th June 7pm - 9pm.

For more information and to learn about the rest of the open studios weekend 24th-26th June, see: www.artfulwinchester.com.

The galleries are both on Elm Road - Winchester SO22 5AG: Atelier - 36 Elm Road, and Standrin gallery - just a few doors down in the courtyard - make sure you see both as they have different things on offer!

There will be the chance to see and buy work from 7 local artists in the Fulflood, Winchester area, to meet the artists and to have a drink.

Artists are invited to submit ‘sketches’ of machines - hoped or feared, possible or impossible. We are seeking raw ideas on the back of an envelope for a group show in the TestBed space.

Submission Deadline Friday 22 July
Exhibition dates: 10 September - 16 November 2011
Launch event 17 September 2011

Made in the Middle is the Midland’s principal open selling exhibition of contemporary craft, which takes place every three years. It promotes the best of recent craft from makers with a regional connection and it is popular with audiences, galleries and collectors. Besides achieving an excellent level of sales, many makers gain from further commissions and exhibiting opportunities.

This is the seventh exhibition in the ongoing Made in the Middle series, originated by Craftspace. This year for the first time, East meets West as the exhibition will also feature work from makers based in or affiliated to the East Midlands, to reflect the skill and work available within the whole region.

The exhibition will launch at mac birmingham on 21st January 2012 and will tour for approximately eighteen months. Made in the Middle will launch in the East Midlands at The National Centre for Craft & Design.
