Arthur Hash profile picture

Providence / United States of America

Born in 1976

Arthur Hash received his MFA in metalsmithing and jewelry design from Indiana University in 2005 and his BFA in Crafts/Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2002.  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.  In May of 2010 Arthur presented“Arthur Hash, Jewelry and Wearable Objects” at the Ross Museum of Art in Delaware,Ohio. Other recent exhibitions include:Out of the Box –Trends in Contemporary Jewelry at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Virginia Beach, Virginia and Body Language: Contemporary Art Jewelry at the Wayne Art Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Arthur’s work is included in a number of private and public collections around the United States. Currently, Arthur has the pleasure of serving as an assistant professor at the Rhode Island School of Design in the Jewelry and Metalsmithing department.

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 incorporates digital fabrication technologies such as water-jet cutting, 3D scanning, CNC routing and rapid prototyping to make one-off art jewelry pieces, large archival ink-jet prints and vinyl sticker installations.
