May 8 - June 17, 2017

Rebecca Hannon is having a Spotlight Show at:

Rebecca Hannon creates colorful, sculptural necklaces in complex interlocking forms. This new series in inspired by folk art picture frames. Models are first made in cardboard and then transformed in formica.

A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Hannon worked as a goldsmith for five years in New York City before attending the Akademie der Bildenden Kuenste in Munich, Germany on a Fulbright scholarship. Five years later she returned to North America and currently teaches, lectures and has her own workshop.

Her work can be found in public and private collections internationally. In her work, she strives to create evocative objects that double as fine souvenirs. Place and time are documented through the process of making. A fleeting memory, a lost bauble or an everyday object are refashioned to create a small celebratory ornament.
Statement

The perception of pattern on form is the focus of my current work. A historical system of protective ship coloration called “Dazzle Camouflage” inspires my recent line of inquiry. Dazzle Camouflage was used on WWI warships, and never sought to conceal as a traditional camouflage pattern would, rather to confuse. The angular forms painted on a hull represented a 2D flattened ship, with a heightened perspective, that gave the appearance of traveling in a different direction. Dazzle caused “visual disruption” and confused estimates of speed and direction (necessary for launching a torpedo.)

My current research is called “Contemporary Camouflage” and asks questions of how we conceal or reveal ourselves, as is often the case in the animal kingdom. (Coloration and mimicry in nature influenced early ideas about camouflaging in the theatre of war). My adornment can fade into the stripey blouse you are wearing, or jump out like a rosy wine stain. Choices made about signs and symbols give insight into our true selves. The work I make embodies a hope that it will journey into the world, to set a small fleet of wearers adrift with a sense of joy and possibilities for the future.

rr 30

Founded in 1985, Reinstein|Ross, Goldsmiths is proud to be celebrating our 30th Anniversary. In our 30 year history, we have been privileged to work with exceptional goldsmiths. This wealth of talent has helped us sustain our high standards of workmanship and quality. And given this history, we have decided that there is no better way of celebrating our anniversary than to present the independent work of goldsmiths  who have been a part of Reinstein|Ross. This exhibition features the work of Goldsmiths whose jewelry can be found in museums, retail stores, galleries and private collections around the globe. The style of their work varies greatly, spanning the worlds of fine jewelry, fashion jewelry and art jewelry. Materials range from gold and diamonds, to silver, laminate, and even beautifully manipulated  paper currency. The only string that connects their work is the high quality of their design and craftsmanship, and the fact that we can call them part of our RR family.

Rebecca Hannon

Rebecca HannonLaminat ist ein Oberflächenmaterial, das aus mehreren miteinander verklebten Schichten besteht. Jeder von uns kennt laminierte Oberflächen von Zuhause – sei es in der Küche, im Bad oder auf dem Boden. Dank Rebecca Hannon brilliert Laminat auch als Schmuck am Körper. Sie beweist mit ihrer Arbeit, dass Schmuck seinen Wert nicht zwingend aus teuren Materialien beziehen muss. Rebecca Hannon ist bekannt als experimentelle Künstlerin, eine, die nicht stillstehen kann, sich immer weiter entwickeln will. Neugierig und voller Begeisterung ist sie ständig auf der Jagd nach unkonventionellen Materialien und Techniken, mit denen sie neue Idee generieren und ausdrücken kann. 
Rebecca Hannon spielt mit Laminat, als wäre es buntes Papier. Ausgeschnittene Formen, übereinander, nebeneinander, ineinander, wirken zufällig in ihrer Anordnung, sind aber sehr sorgfältig artikuliert und interagieren frisch und mutig mit dem menschlichen Körper. 
In ihrer Laminat-Serie spiegeln sich die heiteren Farben der Häuser von Nova Scotia (Kanada) wieder. Ihre Kompositionen sind leicht und fröhlich bunt. Die Farben versetzen einen zurück in die Kindheit, erinnern an Collagen mit Papier, an Miro und Matisse und machen einfach nur Freude.

Workshop

Lunenburg School of the Arts: Summer Workshop

Innovative Processes and Materials for

Jewellery

Rebecca will be teaching this workshop in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

During this 1-week intensive jewellery “boot camp” you will be immersed in learning about resin casting, mold-making, inlay techniques and beyond, as they relate to contemporary jewellery. Plastics bring long wearing ‘pops’ of color to your jewellery. Artist Rebecca Hannon has researched innovative uses of plastics in tandem with traditional goldsmithing techniques for the past 15 years. Skills acquired during this fast paced week include silicon mold making, resin coloring and casting, micro-mosaics and rhinestone inlay, plexi-glass forming and cold connections to tie it all together. Come learn about the myriad possibilities of plastic and go home with a finished piece. All levels welcome.

New Acquisitions: Contemporary Jewelry

Rebecca's work is included in this show. Titled Houses, 2004, Gift of Gail M. Brown. 

Contemporary art jewelry often investigates cultural, social, personal, and environmental topics. RAM’s holdings in art jewelry—with examples from artists across the globe and at varying stages in their careers—are growing rapidly. This exhibition celebrates recent gifts from a handful of dedicated collectors and donors.  A special feature of this exhibition is a concentrated look at the work of several artists that RAM is collecting in-depth. Artists such as Terri Gelenian-Wood, Eleanor Moty, and Harold O’Connor are represented in the museum’s collection by multiple works with new gifts joining examples already in RAM’s holdings.

Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography

Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography is the first museum exhibition to explore the dynamic art created when studio jewelry and photography combine in surprising and compelling forms. The resulting designs explore personal, artistic, cultural and political issues. From the historic to the technologically advanced, the sum of these photo-jewelry designs is ultimately more than the parts and the work included in the exhibition is vitally contemporary.

The six exhibition themes reveal the creativity and technical mastery of 80 jewelry artists from 30 countries as they explore familiar forms and invent new ones: Portraiture in jewelry is age old, but “Saving Face” explores new representations of people and psychological states; "The Body in Play" presents digitally manipulated and fractured imagery of the human body; "Remembered Places, Imagined Spaces" reimagines city and country landscapes; in "Appropriation and Pastiche" artists hijack and transform iconic imagery from art history, popular culture and film; dismantled camera components provide the ingredients in "Displaced Lenses/Orphaned Apertures: Apparatus as Art" in imaginative and unexpectedly wearable pieces of jewelry; "Beyond Wearability" defies expectations of the functions and conventions of jewelry with visually stimulating and technologically advanced photographic and video works.

To unite the contemporary works with historical antecedents, Multiple Exposures also includes an introductory section that incorporates early daguerreotypes, tintypes, and albumen silver prints as they appeared in lockets, brooches, bracelets and other objects as relics, keepsakes, and signs of devotion.

Multiple Exposures is organized by Ursula Ilse-Neuman, Curator of Jewelry at the Museum of Arts and Design.

Panel Discussion - Sunday October 27

Craft and Marketing Panel Discussion, facilitated by Sarah Alford. Whether one-of-a-kind or production work, marketing seems to be something that one can never, ever do well enough. Some questions considered: What are the particular challenges in marketing one-of-a-kind-work, and/or craft work that also functions as sculpture? Is this a place where the marketing of production work and the marketing of fine art blend together? One-of-a-kind, fine craft seems to inhabit a space between the way a so-called artist markets her work, and the way someone in production markets her work. In what ways do pop up shops, etsy and kickstarter etc. seem to present both opportunities and threats to our individual practices? Will more opportunities for marketing and selling online mean work in more homes, instead of galleries? Is that a good thing?

Nocturne Halifax / Art at Night

Maritime Museum of the Atlantic 1675 Lower Water St. Museum

Isolation - The Museum and NSCAD art students will once again be working together for thisyear’s Nocturne Festival. Whether it was manning a lonely lighthouse, or taking a cramped journey across the vast Atlantic Ocean, isolation has been a common theme found in our Maritime history.

The work of Rebecca Hannon's first year arts students interpreting that theme will be displayed.
