Ron Ho: A Jeweler's Tale

This event is in the past
May 10–Sept 15, 2019
Bellevue Arts Museum Bellevue (Seattle)
More from Our Arts Guide
Every piece of jewelry tells a story—both about the wearer and the maker. How we adorn ourselves and make ourselves glitter is not simply a matter of function, but also of taste and history. Northwest jeweler Ron Ho’s pieces—made of jade, bone, silver, and gold—don’t ascribe to traditional ideals of balance, but instead are extremely personal and draw on his own Chinese heritage. After his death in 2017, the Hawaiian-born artist left behind a trove of writings, letters, images, paintings, and objects. This exhibition displays these items (and even offers a full reconstruction of Ho’s studio), providing a new context and perspective through which we can understand and appreciate his work. by Jas Keimig
