The Gallery’s collection of contemporary Australian jewellery is being exhibited in its glorious entirety, for the very first time. The Rhianon Vernon-Roberts Memorial Collection, established in late 1991, consists of more than one hundred items of jewellery by fifty-five innovative contemporary jewellers, making it one of the most important collections of its type in Australia. The collection promotes one-off, experimental studio jewellery developed for exhibition. From precious materials to found forms, the jewellery in the exhibition highlights the capacity of artists to push material and conceptual boundaries. The Rhianon Vernon-Roberts Memorial Collection was established and is actively supported by Dr. Jane and Prof. Barrie Vernon-Roberts AO in memory of their daughter and talented jeweller, Rhianon (1964–1990).
