Zipper Jewelry in "Dubh/Dialogues in Black" exhibit at American Irish Historical Society

Three of Kate's Zipper Necklaces are featured in the exhibit titled "Dubh/Dialogues in Black" which is currently on view at the American Irish Historical Society (991 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY) through November 13th, 2011. The exhibit was curated by Brian Kennedy and focuses on contemporary jewelry and objects that are all black in color but also black in "mood." Following the showing in New York, the exhibition will travel to Ireland where it will appear at Oliver Sears Gallery, Molesworth Street, Dublin from February 2 to March 15, 2012.

This is the second in a series of three exhibitions taking place under the direction of designer Joseph Walsh in an exciting new initiative called STUDIO practice established to facilitate dialogue, build relationships and encourage interdisciplinary engagements between Irish artists, designers and studio makers and their international contemporaries.
