Disparate Unity
An exhibition of work by Jewellery Studio artists-in-residence. The artist-in-residency programme celebrates and advocates diverse approaches to making. Conceptual concerns may differ but cohesion is achieved by virtue of these variances and the use of the body as site. Traditional and non-traditional materials are used, scale is challenged and ideas about jewellery's role in society are explored. Participating artists: Marina Babić, Suzanne Carlsen, Margaret Lim, Annie Tung and Patrycja Zwierzynska.

Tick, Tick, Tick…Tock
k. nicol
(Ken), an artist and alumni of the Craft Studio at Harbourfront Centre, presents a solo exhibition where micro-objects create expanses used to define space. k. nicol's company name is metal slug. The word rather suits him—a slow moving creature. His process is methodical, laborious and time consuming. nicol collects clocks. Upon entering his workspace one is more conscious of the sound of ticking and less about being on time; clocks keep time but never dictate time. In nicol's own words, "A clock with time removed is simply a box that ticks." Curated by Melanie Egan.
