Union of Bulgarian Artists exhibitions / archive
Opening - 28th of November, 6 p.m.
In the section "Jewelry" there are more than 30 artists. As it is evident from the slogan, it was formed 20 years ago.
During the opening of the exhibition will be presented just out-of-print book "Contemporary adornment in Bulgaria." More clearly the noticeable ambition of the authors is the separation of the commercial and craft. At its core, this is the instantaneous phase of the evolution of a genre, in this case the art of jewelry.

The word „jewel“ itself raises in man's mind the association for something beautiful, exquisite and precious. Over the centuries and in different cultures the jewelry, the accessories, the decoration, which people have used on their body in many cases, has won more than just aesthetics. This very first art is used in rituals related to all the aspects of life. There are signs, symbols, power, semantics with spiritual energy and function. The jewelry has lost many of these functions today and it is still the winner of a lot of these things.
