"Findings: The Jewelry of Ramona Solberg"
2002-07-15 until 2002-09-15
National Ornamental Metal Museum
Memphis, TN, USA United States of America

Ramona Solberg, internationally recognized for jewelry that is "as personable and vigorous as she", is a Fellow of the American Craft Council and was recently awarded the 2001 National Metalsmiths Hall of Fame Award.  She studied silversmithing and enameling in Norway and textiles in Mexico before joining the faculty of the University of Washington in Seattle.

A pioneer in the use of found and ritual objects in contemporary jewelry, Solberg is also the author of Inventive Jewelry Making.

Now retired, she is producing more jewelry and indulging her love of travel by leading crafts tours to places like Iran and Turkey.   

The opening of this touring exhibit in Seattle in November 2001 and the publication of the accompanying catalogue coincided with Ramona Solberg's 80th birthday. It confirms her place as a "Living Treasure."

Her work is included in the collection of the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Museum of Contemporary Craft, the American Craft Museum, and other private and public collections.

In 1993, her work was included in the Lifetime Achievements exhibit here. The National Ornamental Metal Museum is the final venue for this tour.

Thanks to a grant from The H. W. Durham Foundation, Seniors (62 and up) will be admitted to the exhibit free of charge.
