In 2013 the Victoria and Albert Museum in conjunction with the Qatar Museums Authority held an exhibition on Pearls. This exhibition looked at the long and fascinating history of pearls from the natural to the advent of manufactured pearls. Taking Inspiration from this illustrious material are twelve artists who have used pearls as the starting point for their work.
The twelve artists are Vanessa Arthur, Cath Dearlsey, Peter Deckers, Jane Dodd, Sharon Fitness, Karl Fritsch, Victoria McIntosh, Brendon Monson, Mieke Roy, Moniek Schrijer, Lisa Walker and Raewyn Walsh.

Join us at the opening for a contemporary take on an iconic jewellery material.
