We’ll speak with the 2024 Young Artist Award winner. Parnham will give an artist talk, then discuss his practice and the challenges that come with being a full-time artist. Jewelry-making is a bit of an accident for Parnham. He wants to be a painter, a photographer, a printmaker, a sculptor, an engineer, a scientist, a philosopher, a comedian, a scholar. But not just one—he wants to pick and choose combinations and weave between them. Jewelry is small and relatively permissive. It’s the right place to poke at the boundaries that separate different mediums.

AJF Live with Marta Costa Reis, Monica Gaspar, and Patricia Domingues
August 28, 12 p.m. EST (New York City time)

AJF Trip: September 8–15, 2024: Amsterdam, Netherlands
The overwhelming choice of AJF’s travelers, the capital of the Netherlands is where we’ll spend an exciting week exploring the rich culture of art jewelry in the city and beyond. One of Europe’s most beloved cities, Amsterdam is not only full of history but has a wide modern streak, too: a creative food scene, an open-minded attitude, and an innovative culture of design. 

We will be based in Amsterdam and take day trips to Nijmegen and Maastricht, as well as stops in Belgium: Antwerp and Hasselt. (Since we’ll stay in only one city, you won’t have to unpack and repack!) 

 Highlights we plan to include:

  • visits to such galleries as Galerie Marzee, Galerie Beyond, Galerie Door, The Pool, and Galerie Rob Koudijs
  • private tours of the archives of museums like the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Francoise van Den Bosch Foundation, and CODA
  • meetings with emerging artists from the schools PXL-MAD and MASieraad
  • visits to artists’ studios, such as Gijs Bakker, Evert Nijland, Ruudt Peters, Beppe Kessler, Nina Sajet, Ted Noten, Paul Derrez, Gesine Hackenberg, Ela Bauer, Chequita Nahar, and Kalkidan Hoex

One of the perks of giving at the Silver level is the opportunity to join a cast of jewelry world aficionados as we travel the world.
