Research/Creative Activity

In May of 2006 Arthur completed his second solo exhibition entitled "Instance" at the Quirk Gallery in Richmond Virginia. Other exhibitions include: Signs of Life 08 at the Facere Gallery in Seattle, From Minimal To Bling: Contemporary Studio Jewelry at The Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston, Virtual Tangible 2.0 at the Velvet DaVinci in San Francisco and NEXT ICONOCLASTS at the Oregon College for Art and Craft. Arthur's work is included in a number of private and public collections around the United States.

Arthur's work comes from a commitment to participate in the contemporary exploration of what jewelry is and can be, while retaining the sense of elegance and beauty found in the long tradition of body adornment. His recent work has incorporated industrial technologies such as waterjet cutting, 3D scanning, CNC routing and rapid prototyping to make one-off art jewelry pieces.

Awards, Honors & Recognition

In 2007, Arthur was awarded his second Fellowship from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond Virginia and named a Searchlight Artist by the American Craft Council.

Publications

His work can been seen in such publications as Metalsmith magazine, American Craft Magazine, Domino Magazine and Niche Magazine.
