Exciting news of ACJ's exhibition programme for the next two years.

2019 sees Connections/Connessione, a touring exhibition with our Italian sister organisation AGC, plus a members' selling show at a gallery in London.

For 2020 the Members' Exhibition theme is Glass Houses


ACJ has been working on a two-country touring exhibition with AGC in Italy, which will open in November 2019 at a major jewellery venue in London, travelling to Scotland next, then in June 2020 it will open in the first of two Italian venues.

Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo (AGC) was established in 2004, and (like ACJ) includes curators, educators, gallerists, collectors among its members, as well as practicing jewellers.  AGC has an excellent track record of exhibitions and events, in Italy and internationally. They regularly show at JOYA Barcelona, Schmuck Germany, and have shown in the USA and China.  See : www.agc-it.org
Their annual Gioielli in Fermento (Jewellery in Ferment) shows work from makers across the globe, selected from applications and invited artists, and the work is very fresh and exciting. See: gioiellinfermento.com   May 2019 will see the opening of the 9th event in this series.

Connections/Connessione will show the work of 50 makers, half from each organisation.  Applications are now open and the deadline is 1st July 2019.

The Call for Entries and the application form has been sent to ACJ members at the end of March. If you are not a member and would like to join ACJ and apply, please email the Administrator This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.   The AGC Call will be sent to their members soon. If you are a member of both organisations, then please apply through the country nearest where you live now.

Selling show, London

We're working on a small but perfectly formed selling show at a brilliant gallery in London for this Autumn, details to be announced soon.

Glass Houses

Planning ahead, we are also preparing the 2020 Members' Exhibition, themed Glass Houses to show work reflecting climate change and the environment. The Call for Entries will go out early in 2020, but you are most welcome to start making now!
