Transformation 5: Contemporary Works in Found Objects

March 31, 2007 — June 17, 2007

Transformation 5: Contemporary Works in Found Materials is a juried exhibition of more than 30 national artists who competed for the Elizabeth R. Raphael Founder’s Prize, a prestigious award that recognizes excellence in the field of contemporary craft, in 2005. Organized by the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, the show highlights amazing examples of the innovative ways in which artists are transforming found materials into contemporary art. Jurors selected finalists based on innovation, technique, high-quality execution, and above all, the degree to which their work challenged and moved viewers beyond their own frames of reference in terms of found materials.
