With September upon us here at Lattimer Gallery, it's time for our annual fall jewellery show. Each fall for the past twelve years, we have provided artists with a general theme and asked them to create one-of-a-kind works of silver jewellery. This always leads to some of the most dynamic, unique, and exciting pieces we see all year, and 2023 is no exception. This fall's show, titled Growing Together: Themes of Nurturing in Northwest Coast Silver Jewellery, invites artists to create works centered around ideas of sustenance and development. The sun helping plants flourish, a mother bear guiding her cubs, a student learning from their mentor -- all of these things help us keep in mind the beauty and importance of interconnectedness, and the mutual dependency of all living things in a time when caring connection has never been so important. We're excited to feature work from artists such as Corrine Hunt (Kwakwaka'wakw/Tlingit), Shawn Edenshaw (Haida/Gitxsan), Hollie Bartlett (Haisla), Morgan Asoyuf (Ts'msyen), Gus Cook (Kwakwaka'wakw), and many more.
Growing Together features over twenty pieces in this thematic vein. The show opens on September 22nd and runs through October 6th. Pieces will be available to view and purchase in-person at Lattimer Gallery, or online with worldwide shipping. We hope you're excited to join us in celebration of these wonderfully talented artists and the wildly creative fruits of their labour.
Please note that all purchased pieces that are part of the show will remain in the gallery for the show's duration.
