Contemporary Wearables ’11 is a selection of artworks by Australia’s most creative jewellery designers. This year’s exhibition attracted entries from 110 Australian artists. Fifty artists, including 14 students, had works selected for the exhibition.

Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery and the Toowoomba Gallery Society devised the award exhibition in 1989 to promote the profile of contemporary jewellery artisans. They initiated the first Contemporary Wearables exhibition, Contemporary Wearables ‘89, which attracted entries from around Australia.

The inaugural winner was Phill Mason of Tasmania.

From its beginnings, the importance, size, presentation, reputation and prestige of this national touring award exhibition has increased dramatically. It now is established as an important event on the calendar of leading jewellers.

Presented as part of the Academy Gallery National Exhibition Touring Program in partnership with the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery, Queensland.
