Peter Bauhuis: Schoonhoven Prize

Congratulations to Peter Bauhuis upon receiving the Schoonhoven Silver Award 2018. The Schoonhoven prize is devoted to inspiring artists to explore the boundaries of their traditional art and craft. i.e. stimulating the exploration of new technologies and uses, and innovative art forms. Innovation, as envisioned in the Award’s present edition, would center on the rejuvenation of older, time-honored techniques, and on the preservation of an immaterial heritage by injecting dynamic new life.

An exhibition of all nominated works will be presented in a 3 month exhibition at the Nederlands Zilvermuseum Schoonhaven and will then travel to several cities in Belgium and Germany.

Robert Baines at the Museum of Arts and Design

A new exhibition of work by iconic jeweler Robert Baines will open at the Museum of Arts and Design on Oct. 16, 2018. The show,  Fake News and True Love: Fourteen Stories by Robert Baines, is a clever examination of jewelry as a document of popular cultural history. The artist’s fanciful pieces and accompanying “evidence” encourage belief in the fourteen stories he presents. Baines has fabricated alternate realities that span from B.C.E. to the present day and encompass an equally wide range of topics, including migration, conspiracy, forgery, celebrity, and politics. The artist will give a performative lecture in conjunction with the exhibition. Thurs. Oct. 18, 6:30 – 8 pm.
