ABOUT QUOIL

The gallery currently represents about 40 jewellery artists, producing work at the epitome of quality and preciousness. Our artists range from experienced, multi-award-winning heroes to freshly emerging talent. We like it best this way.

Recently, a surge in the number of facilities for training in art jewellery has lead to broader expression, and higher standards for us to curate to. QUOIL until recently represented exclusively New Zealand jewellery artists, however now has the jewellery of well-known overseas artists too. Some of these artists are exclusive to QUOIL in New Zealand.

We hold around six exhibitions a year - a mix of solo and group shows. Potential exhibiting artists are invited to make a submission representative of the work they'd like to show. Usually there is a specific, personal concept or inspiration for their submission, which forms the theme of their show..

 

Exhibits and featured works are displayed in the lit wall cabinets while the drawers hold a treasure trove from each jeweller. Opening one drawer at a time, you have a chance to discover them. If you would like to be emailed about our exhibitions, please sign up here

The people who work in QUOIL are all practising jewellery artists. Owner Phillipa Gee holds a Degree in Fine Art majoring in Gold and Silversmithing from RMIT in Melbourne and a Graduate Diploma in Applied Art from Whitireia NZ, Tamsin Hooper has a Diploma in Visual Arts majoring in jewellery from Whitiriea NZ and Claire McSweeny has a BA in Fine Art majoring in Jewellery from Otago Polytech.

QUOIL was originally opened by jewellery artist Belinda Hager in 1997, recognising a need for her contemporaries to receive local validation. In 2007 Phillipa Gee took the reins, retaining the supportive environment where artists are able to develop their creativity and self-confidence.
