My husband/metalsmith Jim Bove became one of the six American metalsmiths/jewelry artists whose work were accepted by "Schmuck" Jewelry exhibition in 2015. It is one of the oldest and most renowned jewelry shows in Europe, quite an honor for him to be a part of it.
Luckily, the exhibition and the contemporary craft fair that hosts the exhibition happen in the middle of March, when my husband's school is in the Spring break. Also, we have an excuse of calling this trip as our ten year anniversary (well, it's actually in May 2015, but two months is not much compared to ten years). So we decided to go to Germany to see the exhibition in person.
I am so excited to visit Germany for the first time, seems like Munich has so much to offer. While in grade schools, my history textbooks focused so much on the World War II and Berlin, but Bavaria region has been a major European player for a long time. I cannot wait to see it! And try their beers.
There will be many craft exhibitions and gallery shows in Munich during the craft fair. I will report back the front-line of European contemporary craft soon!
