On Display: Gallery 78

Category: arts 40

Three new exhibitions of work are now on display at Gallery 78.

Hand piece by Kathryn Cronin.

Fortified – selected works by award-winning silversmith Kathryn Cronin.

Delving into a theme she explored during her Advanced Studio Practice at the NBCCD, Kathryn captures in her jewellery how life changes and continues to form, and one must overcome difficulties. In her words, “This series is made of small, weak segments of wire that I fused together over and over until I had a sizeable piece that is architectural and grand, and infinitely stronger both physically and aesthetically.” Learn more
