EVENT DESCRIPTIONS

SPECIAL AJF LIVE WITH GALERIE MARZEE
Wednesday, June 23, 2021, 12:00 p.m. EST
Click here to purchase your ticket.

For this special ticketed event, we invited several AJF members who are major jewelry enthusiasts to be “guest stars” in a virtual art jewelry consultation with gallerist Marie-José van den Hout. Based on their responses to a brief questionnaire, Marie-José will personally choose a piece of jewelry from her inventory for each “guest star,” one she thinks would be perfect for them. During the AJF Live event, she’ll present her selection on a life-size photo of the guest so they and the audience can see how it would look on. She’ll also talk about the artist who made the piece, and explain why she picked this particular jewel as an excellent choice for the guest.

Be a bystander at a consultation between one of today’s elite gallerists and some of the biggest art jewelry enthusiasts and collectors!
• Meet some of today’s top art jewelry enthusiasts and collectors
• Gain insight into Marzee’s thinking—how she consults with clients and matches them with the perfect adornment
• Learn about the artists Marzee represents and hear the stories behind them
• See amazing pieces of art jewelry
