Triadica: Jewellery designers exhibit wearable art

Triadica is an exhibition of new art jewellery by Saskatoon artists Jenny-Lyn Fife, Mary Lynn Podiluk, and Joan Thomson. The exhibition runs from November 25 to January 7 at the Saskatchewan Craft Council Gallery in Saskatoon.

The group uses three elements — colour, natural forms, and contrasts — to explore the concept of "Triad." Jenny-Lyn Fife’s jewellery is architectural and organic, incorporating unique combinations of textile and metal. Mary Lynn Podiluk fuses resin and precious metals, creating evocative shapes. Joan Thomson connects personal memories to the wearer, creating works in silver and gold.
Visitors to the SCC Gallery will see jewellery in a new context. "[We’ve] come together to [talk] about contemporary art jewellery as a viable and imaginative means of artistic expression… With this work we have pushed ourselves to break some of the conventional boundaries that jewellery is commonly known for."
Fife, Podiluk, and Thomson have been supported by the Independent Artist Program of the Saskatchewan Arts Board. The grant has enabled these exceptional jewellery artists to experiment with new ideas and materials as each looks to expand her art practice.
The SCC Gallery will host an Opening Reception on December 2 and an Artists’ Talk on December 8 where visitors will have a chance to meet the artists.
The work will also be available through our new Online Gallery where you can purchase pieces from the show electronically. These will be up and ready for sale when the exhibition opens on November 25.
