Over the last eight years The Contemporary Silver Gallery’s two week Summer Exhibition – showing and selling the latest pieces of contemporary silver and jewellery from the best silversmiths and designers/jewellers in the UK – has become a bit of a feature in a West Sussex village.
So now along comes a Winter Exhibition! “We started exhibiting contemporary silver at our Summer Exhibition in 2008 in Lindfield,” says John Higgins, the gallery’s owner, “and in each subsequent year the event has become more and more popular.
“Three years ago we were asked to include contemporary jewellery in our Summer Exhibition, which has proved extremely popular. Now our customers have asked us to put on a Winter Exhibition – which we have decided to run over four successive weekends in November and December.”
As usual John has commissioned some unique contemporary pieces in both silver and enamel and contemporary jewellery specifically for this Winter Exhibition. He also has assembled a fantastic group of work from the very best silversmiths and jewellers working in the UK, including new pieces from Rod Kelly, Phil Barnes, Jane Short, Ros Conway, Michael Lloyd, Kayo Saito, Hiroshi Suzuki, Lucy Martin and Daphne Krinos – and many other exciting young designers.
“We are very privileged to have so many top silversmiths and jewellery designers who want to exhibit their work through us, and we are fortunate to have an excellent following of customers and collectors who take real delight in these exceptional contemporary pieces.
The Contemporary Silver Gallery Winter Exhibition takes place across the follow weekends: 26th/27th November 2016, 3rd/4th December 2016, 9th/10th/11th December, 16th/17th/18th December 2016.
