“Think Twice: New Latin American Jewelry” at Bellevue Arts Museum

This is an exhibition that offers a whole new way of thinking about jewelry. The materials are both familiar and unexpected. The design concepts draw from the past and look to the future. The pieces range in scale from tiny to gigantic.

Included are more than 130 works by almost 100 artists from 25 countries. Many of them tell stories that address the cultures of Latin America or the history of this vast area. It’s sure not Van Cleef and Arpels, but it sure speaks to contemporary aesthetics.

See my full review in The Seattle Times NWTicket Section of June 3.

Through Oct. 16 at Bellevue Arts Museum 510 Bellevue Way N.E. Bellevue (425 519-0770 or www.bellevuearts.org).
