Nature is the first major exhibition to be held at San W Gallery and Studio in Shanghai. This is an exciting project that has evolved from the partnership between the Yiwei Art Foundation and Guildhouse.

Guildhouse started working with Yiwei in 2013 when she invited our organisation to curate a glass exhibition to be featured at Art Shanghai 2014. This collection of 15 glass works by 7 Australian artists was a great success. Following the exhibition, the Yiwei Art Foundation proposed a 5-year collaboration between our organisations.

This partnership with San W Gallery /Studio will encourage critical dialogue between artists, foster cultural exchange and understanding and bring together artists from all over the world to share skills, techniques and ideas that will allow for further personal projects.

We are thrilled to bring this work by 11 contemporary Australian jewellers to San W Gallery. These leading jewellers were invited to exhibit here because of their exceptional creativity, innovative design and excellent craftsmanship.

We would like to thank the artists for participating in this historic exhibition at San W Gallery and sharing their work with this new audience in China.
