Two distinguished jewellers celebrated in new Living Arts Space exhibition

Two of Bendigo’s esteemed jewellers have come together in a celebration of master craftsmanship for a new exhibition, The Town Jewels, which has opened at the Living Arts Space.

The free exhibition explores the work of two local jewellers Tony Kean and Milton Long who between them celebrate over 60-plus years’ experience as fine jewellery makers.

City of Greater Bendigo Visitor Services Manager Jemma Docherty said both jewellers were highly distinguished artists and well known for their expertise in creating unique jewellery pieces.

“Both jewellers have produced magnificent pieces for this exhibition and the fine detail for each piece is exquisite.” Ms Docherty said.

The Town Jewels exhibits the jewellers’ new work, reflects on past masterpieces and offers insights on each artist’s creative process.

“Residents are also invited to The Town Jewels official exhibition opening at the Living Arts Space on Saturday July 23 from 2pm to 4pm.

“It’s an opportunity to meet the jewellers and enjoy this very special event which will be attended by Mayor Cr Andrea Metcalf.”

The Town Jewels is on until Sunday September 11. You can also browse exhibition products at:
