This exhibition represents the extraordinary work being produced today by artists who use plastics as a foundational element in their pieces.  These are pieces that span the realms of the sublime and the humorous.  Whether meant for everyday adornment or making a specific statement, for telling a story or giving straightforward aesthetic pleasure, this exhibition demonstrates the vast range of possibilities that plastic afford

TRANSMUTATIONS/MATERIAL REBORN is curated by Susan Kasson Sloan who recently jurored Lark Book’s “500 Plastic Jewelry Designs – A Groundbreaking Survey of a Modern Material.”  Kasson Sloan teaches at the 92nd Street Y in NYC.
