As part of Found Subjects, HCCC is pleased to invite you to an Artist Talk by Sondra Sherman. The event will take place on Saturday, April 23, at 3:30 PM at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.
In Found Subjects, Sherman creates unique brooches and necklaces prompted by the individual books she has collected over many years. Sherman cuts into the pages of each book, giving them new life as they house the jewelry they inspired.
