Intro
(...) Works by 27 artists that explore the brilliant range of possibilities that plastic, as a medium, provides for the making of Contemporary Art Jewelry. (...)
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 affords.

Works by 27 artists that explore the brilliant range of possibilities that plastic, as a medium, provides for the making of Contemporary Art Jewelry.
This exhibition is based on the Curator's recently published book "500 Plastic Jewelry Designs" by Lark Books that is an extraordinary survey of the works being done with this incredibly versatile medium that includes resin, latex, rubber, epoxy, acrylic, polyester and thermoplastics.
