Transmutations: Material Reborn

April 28, 2010 - May 17, 2010
Lecture: Wednesday, April 28 at 4:00 PM
Reception: Wednesday, April 28 at 5:00 PM

An exhibition celebrating 27 international jewelry artists who transform plastics (materials that include resin, latex, rubber, vinyl, and thermoplastics)into wearable art. This exhibition was curated by Susan Kasson Sloan, juror of the recent Lark Books publication '500 Plastic Jewelry Designs.'


There are pieces meant for everyday adornment, and pieces meant to make a statement. There is jewelry produced by using high technology Computer Aided Design or CAD and Rapid Prototyping - 3-dimensional printing in ABS Plastic. There is jewelry made of plastic Lego toy parts and jewelry made of found objects in varied combinations. This show will be traveling to the Center for Contemporary Craft in Houston, Texas in March for the 2010 SNAG conference. From there it will travel to Seattle to Facere Gallery, then to Gallery Loupe in Montclair, NJ.
