The Harbourfront Centre’s Artist-in-Residency Programme is truly one of a kind, fostering artists as varied and unique as the experience it offers. For all those who have taken part, there is a kinship. Contemporaries act as encouragement and support, while those preceding act as examples and mentors whose careers are looked to for inspiration. This show is a celebration of the artists-in-residence, both past and present, who make up the Harbourfront Centre’s jewellery and metal family. Though the programme is too prolific to include all its many accomplished alumni, this exhibition represents a selection of some of the best and brightest spanning all generations. It demonstrates the strength of a community that stands together and a programme that stands apart. It is our family album.
This exhibition is presented by Harbourfront Centre as part of the inaugural Toronto International Jewellery Festival (TIJF) in conjunction with Meta-Mosaic, the 2013 Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) Conference.
