Transformation 10: Contemporary Works in Found Materials features 26 exceptional artists’ artwork that incorporates found objects and materials for personal and global narratives, expressions, and aesthetics.
The Transformation series, one of the Contemporary Craft’s signature programs, was established in 1997 as a biennial juried exhibition focusing on traditional craft media – glass, wood, metal, clay, and found materials – in rotation. The exhibition seeks out an international selection of artists redefining their medium to create work that is challenging and thought provoking; inviting us all to reconsider our notion of “craft.”
This exhibition is free and open to the public.
Exhibiting artists: Victoria Ahmadizadeh, Fumi Amano, James Arendt, Undine Brod, Jeremy Brooks, Melissa Cameron, Adriane Dalton, Hilary Fayle, Maggie Hiltner, Everett Hoffman, Judith Hoyt, Katie Hudnall, Joshua Kosker, Kate Kretz, Diane KW, Ted Lott, Archana Pathak, Ellie Richards, Arturo Sandoval, Jina Seo, Tom Shields, Carina Shoshtary, Michelle Stitzlein, Jessica Tolbert, MJ Tyson, Robert Villamagna.
The Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize:
In conjunction with each Transformation exhibition, the jurors select the participating artist whose work best displays the tenets of excellence and innovation. The award is accompanied by a $5000 cash prize. The Transformation 10 winner and Honorable Mention recipients will be publicly announced at the exhibition opening reception on September 14, 2018.
