Purdue to exhibit precious metal objects & jewelry

During the summer, Purdue Galleries will feature a glittering array of contemporary objects and jewelry.

"57/1: Artists from the Premier Edition of the PMC Guild Annual" will be presented May 12 to Aug. 1 in the Robert L. Ringel Gallery in the Purdue Memorial Union.

Fifty-seven international artists working in precious metal clay were chosen for publication in the first edition of the PMC Guild Annual book.

Those artists' works are featured in this exhibition, presented in conjunction with the guild's biennial conference, which will be held for the second time at Purdue from July 17-20.

In the early 1990s, M. Morikawa of Mitsubsihi Materials Corp. in Japan developed precious metal clay as a way to join jewelry making and ceramics.

Made of tiny particles of silver and gold suspended in an organic and water binder, the material can be worked like clay.

After work is formed, it is fired in a kiln, the binder burns away, the metal particles fuse together, and the result is an object of pure silver, 22K or 24K gold.

"This non-toxic material is used to make items such as jewelry, small sculptures and home décor pieces," said Jeanette Landenwitch, executive director of the PMC Guild.

"PMC is proving to be an incredibly versatile material used all over the world, and the artists featured in the book and exhibition illustrate that global appeal."

In the summer of 2006, the group presented a similar exhibit of its members at Purdue.

"It's nice to have them back again, to see what has developed over the last few years," said Craig Martin, Galleries director.

"This show will be a nice summer stop for our campus audience and community visitors, full of precious glittering artworks."

The exhibit at the Robert L. Ringel Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment.
