Join us for a discussion with Israeli-based artist Vered Babai. We’ll talk with her about her choice of materials and what contemporary jewelry means to her.
Vered Babai: Since her graduation from the department of Jewelry Design at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, in 1993, Vered moved to Tel-Aviv and opened her private studio.
Her works have been exhibited in museums and galleries all over the world, and have received national awards such as the American Israel Craft Foundation Prize for Art and Sculpture and the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sport Prize for Design. Her work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions in Paris, Trieste, and Izola.
Vered has taught at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, and at HaStudio in Ra’anana, Israel. For more than 20 years, she gives private lessons in her studio.
In recent years, she has also curated international exhibitions in the field of contemporary jewelry.
This event is free to the public. The Center for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
