Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 30, 5:30 - 7:30 pm
BodyWork brings together an eclectic group of artists working in glass. These artists have chosen to augment their more traditional studio practices with the making of wearable art. The creation of jewelry stretches the approach of the maker by forcing utilitarian concerns such as body placement and fit, while simultaneously expanding the potential for meaning through the relationship between the work and the wearer. A piece of adornment goes beyond its static value as an art object and is animated by its wearer, even to the level of performance.
