Aotearoa/Aroha – an exhibition of contemporary jewellery by Deanna Gracie

Here is the press release and poster for my solo exhibition in Christchurch in November

Aotearoa/Aroha
an exhibition of contemporary jewellery by Deanna Gracie
3rd – 9th November

BEAUTIFUL, NATURAL AND UNIQUE PIECES OF WEARABLE ART ON SHOW IN CLOISTERS GALLERY AT THE ARTS CENTRE OF CHRISTCHURCH

Precious objects created with gorgeous gemstones, sleek silver, glistening gold, richly coloured indigo blue titanium – combined with softly textured finishes and tactile surfaces feature in this solo exhibition by Deanna Gracie.

Deanna designs and creates her naturally New Zealand inspired contemporary jewellery from her home studio in the very beautiful and inspiring beachside suburb of Southshore, Christchurch. Made from her heart and with her hand no two pieces of jewellery are ever exactly the same.

“I find joy in the most simple of things; the perfect shape of a ginkgo leaf, the ebb and flow of the tide, patterns left on sand by wind and rain, the gentle call of a gull as it soars in the air. These experiences fill my soul to overflowing and I race to my studio to start the next piece,” says Deanna.

On the 3rd of November at 10.00am, Aotearoa/Aroha will be showcased at Cloisters Gallery, in the North Quad at the Arts Centre of Christchurch and will then run for one week only until the 9th November. Open daily 10am – 5pm.

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you at the exhibition : – )
