Tamagit is an incubator and gallery with the mission to make art jewelry accessible to everybody. Whether you’re a collector, an artist, a professional, or an interested outsider who believes in the transformational power of wearing or collecting art jewelry, then Tamagit is open to you. You don’t necessarily need to be in the established contemporary art jewelry circles.
Art Jewelry Forum’s Young Artist Award (YAA) is an opportunity for jewelers under the age of 35 to win recognition for their work and receive support from AJF’s community. Along with the unrestricted $7,500 prize, the winner’s work will be shown at the 2020 edition of Schmuck, and the other four finalists will have the same opportunity to show in Munich, exposing their work to a more global audience. The deadline to apply is looming! Applications are being accepted until January 12, 2020.
