The Box Project @ The See Here, Wellington, NZ, April, 2011

The Box Project exhibition Wellington leg of the NZ tour in April this year was a huge success. I owe the delightful people at The See Here gallery a huge thanks to making everything run as smoothly as it did, especially Sunni Gibson!.

The See Here is a window gallery jewellery space located in Wellington’s vibrant and colourful suburb Newtown. Founded by Sunni Gibson The See Here is a group of artists and jewellers whose practice occupies the border between fine and applied art. They are dedicated to investigating contemporary jewellery and showcasing the many and varied results of this exploration.

Their programme of two or three week shows includes work from members and invited guests, displayed at theseehere.com and at their physical space, The See Here micro gallery, 12 Constable Street, Newtown, Wellington, New Zealand.

The online space lets you contact the artists and find out more about the work. It is also a platform for the exchange of ideas about contemporary jewellery and its many facets. (taken from theseehere website).

The See Here collective is comprised of Jhana Millers, Kelly McDonald, Matthew McIntyre Wilson, Nadine Smith, Peter Deckers, Sarah Read, Sunni Gibson, Tara Brady and Vivien Atkinson; all incredibly talented and inspiring New Zealand Jewellers. More information about each maker and images of their work can be seen at The See Here website here. It was so wonderful to finally put faces to names that only existed in emails prior.
